Last week seemed like a short week for two reasons:
- My son and I had pink eye and we were out of school one day.
- We took our 5th graders to our first field trip on Friday.
The other three days we spent focusing on how to PLAN for reading and how to make TIME for reading. I sent out our first Scholastic book order and they were so excited to pick out new books to possibly order.
This week is Fall Break so we brainstormed ideas on how to make time for reading during break AND our everyday lives.
These are the thoughts of the two fifth grad classes I teach.
We also celebrated International Dot Day. We read the book, watched the book on video, and made our own dots using coffee filters and markers. After they made their dots, I sprayed it with water in a spray bottle. They turned out so pretty when they dried.
I snapped this picture last week during our chapel. Seeing and hearing our students praise God NEVER gets old!
