Friday's News

Happy Friday!

We hope you have all been having a great week.  What have you done to survive this week?

This week we have been focusing on paragraph writing.  Students are working hard to give a strong topic sentence, three juicy details, and finishing with a fitting conclusion.  

For our bell work we are focusing on the short U sound.  These visual posters really seem to help my low learners.

As a school we are holding a draw for students to enter to win a gingerbread house made my the older students at our school.  These gingerbread houses are outside the main office and I have to admit, I usually catch several students hanging out and looking them over rather than on their way to class.  lol.

Along with a Gingerbread house draw, we are also holding a school wide toy drive.  I have to say I have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our community.  I love watching how excited my students are to go and play a toy they have brought in for needy family under the tree.  
Makes my heart warm.

This week we have continued with our 15 days of Giving.  Our Librarian asked if we could help her decorate her windows for Christmas.  So an amazing EA at our school came in and taught us how to make these beautiful snowflakes.  I have to say I was really proud of my students for all the hard work they put into these.  

Now it's your turn, how has your week been?  How have you survived? Go ahead and share all your news by linking up below with InLinkz.


  1. I love those snowflakes. Some of them were made at our school too. I have no idea how it was done.
    I'll try to link up but no promises...I'm at home with a cold.

  2. Hope you are feeling better soon.
