In kindergarten, we are working hard to learn how to write a sentence. We have been working on capital letters, finger spaces, and ending with a period. Our students are great at working hard during writers workshop and love having quiet music to help them concentrate!

Submitted by megan.oropeza on Wed, 01/18/2023 - 22:31

The speech teachers really enjoy the opportunity to go into the kindergarten classrooms to teach various speech sounds! This week is focused on the “snake sound” or S sound. The students have fun making the sign for this sound by slithering their fingers up their arms like a snake.

New Years Resolutions

Submitted by megan.oropeza on Sat, 01/14/2023 - 09:41

Happy New Year! What are your New Year’s Resolutions? Our third graders have been working hard all week brainstorming ideas for how we can have the best year in 2023! We learned that it’s not good to just say you will complete a goal and hope it will happens, you have to put forth the work and effort to make needed changes every day. We loved creating our “New Year’s Persons” holding our perfectly crafted goal statements. After stating our goals, we said things like, “We know we can accomplish these goals by doing…”, and “I will work hard every day by….”.
