The kids had a fun time working together to create their posters. Posters were then presented to the rest of the class while the students filled in a chart of their own using the words from each poster.

Hiromi Johnson-Cordray (2nd grader) came in to Mrs. Downey’s first grade class on Friday, July 25, 2014 as a guest reader. She was very excited to read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom to the class. She reminded our first grade class how we sit on our bottoms and raise our hands. She also encouraged them by modeling what a good listener looks like. She told the class all about how they could look forward to 2nd grade where they do not have to sit on the rug as much and feel wiggly…LOL! Hiromi looks forward to visiting with our class in the future since she was in Mrs. Downey’s first grade class last year. We enjoyed having her read to us and sharing her insight with our class!

answer questions on a specific area of the t-shirt to show their interests and
likes. We then display the shirts and
are able to get to know one another a little better.
Reading and Writing with Mr. Garber
Collin Fitton and Carla Peterson from Mr. Garber’s writing class. They are reading a paragraph they wrote about
what they did over the summer. This was taken on our second day back to
school. I was just going to have them
write the paragraphs and look at them myself or let them share from them their
seats, but when they were finished they were so excited to share they ran to
the front of the classroom to read what they wrote to everyone. I am excited that they are so excited to
write and share out what they have written.
I hope this is an indication of how the rest of the year will go!
