5th grade is off to a busy start this school year! Currently, we are traveling in flashbacks to explore the Lakota Nation, in the novel, In the Footsteps of Crazy Horse. Also, we are continuing to follow Kek as he settles into life in America in our read aloud, Home of the Brave. 5th grade is hard at work writing personal narratives. During October we will begin participating in Book Clubs. Everyone is looking forward to the start of the Architecture and Design Program as well.
1st grade students got a visit from Kelechi Onyejiaka, a self published author, who came to read her book Puffy to the first grade classes! They loved hearing about the friendship between Kayla and her hair! This picture features Ms. Nigro's class listening to the process of publishing the book.
Kindergarten in Ms. Maguire's class has been learning about our identity and what makes you...YOU! We may have things in common, but we are also different. We are also exploring numbers. We are beginning independent and partner reading. Sharing what we are learning through different stories. We are looking forward to learning so much this year.
In Mr. Rowley’s Kindergarten class this month, students are starting their journey of exploring different types of texts, from learn about the world books to storybook classics. They will begin to build up their number sense and explore number stories as a foundation for developing skills this year.
Students are also exploring how they are each unique, with different interests and backgrounds. As fall continues on, the students of 109 will begin to explore force in science and move toward plant and animal life cycles!
