Happy Read-Aloud Day! Children that are read to read better, write better, learn better ! Therefore, we make sure we have read-alouds in our classrooms every day!
We are using sticky notes to record important non-fiction facts. We love our flexible seating. It gives us choices and lets us have the freedom to choose what works best for us.
Ms. Chrisanthopoulos and Ms. Jaggi had their classes meet up for a book celebration. The first graders worked hard writing All About Books and they shared their published pieces.
Students in the pre reading and writing stage benefit from drawing and talking about their creations. It helps develop fine motor, creativity and a foundation for future writing. Check out this masterpiece from one of our kindergartners. “It’s an engine, Ms. Veras, look at the gears.!” #emergentliteracy #drawingislearning #creativeexpression
Our second grade mathematicians worked in groups to solve math problems utilizing various mathematical strategies. It was impressive to see them collaborate, exchange ideas and eloquently share their mathematical thinking!
We are learning to add common endings to words we know in phonics. This will help us become better readers and writers.
Our ESL students learned all about Dr. Martin Luther King and the many ways they could be like him!
A box is just a box, unless you're in Pre-K! Then, a box is a whole world of possibilities! As part of our Creative Curriculum Box Study, our preschoolers have been learning about environmental print, 3d shapes, observational drawings and so much more! #childrenasengineers!
Big happy crowd out tonight for GW and EVG bingo night! Thank you PTO!
Did you know? Children that read 20 minutes per day will have heard 1.8 million words a year! They will also score better than 90% of their peers on standardized tests. Therefore, we make sure our students get independent reading time every single day! #Buildinglifelongreaders
Our teachers start the day off right with some individualized, special greeting time. This helps our students get a positive start to their day. It also helps every student understand that they belong and they matter! #buildingpositiveclassroomcommunities
Did you know? Movement helps students focus, integrate information in the brain and stay motivated. For that reason, we make sure to give our young learners opportunities to move while they learn!
Don't Forget! Girl Scouts Program for grades K-2 begins tomorrow at GW from 3-4pm. For more information contact Ms. DaCosta at firstname.lastname@example.org
