Hi Explorer Families!
We had a busy week of Reading, Writing, Language, and Math assessments and our Stuffed Animal/Movie/Popcorn/Pirate Booty/Juice Party was the perfect end to a hard week of work! Thanks to all who made this celebration possible! We had fun introducing our stuffed animal/doll friends at Morning Meeting, writing about them, working alongside them, and watching "Alvin and the Chipmunks--Chipwrecked" with them. [By the way, due to the festivities, we did not get a chance to write in our Friday journals; hope to get an entry in on Monday!]
I was able to hear each explorer read one-on-one and answer comprehension questions orally. I so enjoy these individual "reading dates" and look forward to conferencing with you about your explorer in a couple weeks. Thanks to all who already booked conferences; if you haven't yet, please refer to my previous email. If you need assistance booking your conference or would like me to do it for you, email me and I'd be happy to help!
*To all for your generous and thoughtful canned good contributions! We had 6 grocery bags and 1 box full of items on Friday! Thanks so much for helping families in our community!
*To all for all you do for your kiddos day to day! I know it is a busy time!
