Our year is quickly coming to an end. It is so hard to believe we only have 7 more days of school and then you will be "young adults" according to Mr. Brown.
This week we started working on literature circles. The kids were able to pick the book they wanted to read. We didn't have a lot of time to meet because it was a crazy week, but we were able to work in some time. We'll be finishing them up next week.
JT, Jarold, and LeighAnna worked to get our Madagascar hissing cockroaches ready for summer. They took them all out to clean out the old bedding and add some new bedding. They are all ready for Mr. Wayne to take of them this summer!
We also found out the titles the kids won after I finished tallying the votes for Who's Who from our class.
Dakota and Megan M. won Mr. and Miss Monrovia. All the pages were sent out for parents to copy today. If you turned in the required assignments then you will be getting a copy of the Who's Who book with all of the titles/pictures, acrostic poems, writing, and baby pictures. I can't wait to see the books this year. I know you will all enjoy them in years to come.
In this final picture you see me along with my cooperating teaching from many years ago. I worked with Mrs. Callaway
when I did my student teaching in 2001. She teaches 2nd grade at Madison Elementary School. I was able to see her this week when I attended my mother-in-law's retirement party.
STUDENTS: We went on our middle school trip this week. What are you looking forward to the most in middle school? What makes you a little scared?
