Reading Counts points turned into $$$$$ The drawers were full, the account balances up to date, and the shopping begins! Students have been reading and taking tests on the computer. What better reward than to shop at JW Beanies. Will you save or spend? BIG thank you to Ms. Cindia nd Ms. Suzan for setting it up, running the reports, and helping with the shopping.
Our reading series has a story, Fruit is a Suitcase For Seeds. Each year the students bring in a fruit that we then share for a friendship fruit salad. This year we had mango, kiwi, watermelon, plum, strawberries, blackberries, and cantelope. We examine the seeds up close and then share our friendship with one another. YUMMY!
Another year with one of our favorite people-Jack Hartmann. For those of you scratching your heads let me explain. We listen to Jack everyday. We sing his songs and dance. All the while we learn about so many things. We stretch words to hear sounds, excercise and count to 100, activate both sides of our brains while we crossover, and so much more. Our Kindergarten and 1st graders look forward to this trip each year. I even danced on stage this year. I am the one in the middle with the BIG smile!Thank you for so much fun!
