Playing with Pixie

We have figured out how to do a lot of fun things using Pixie. The best part is that we notice each other doing something new and we want to do it too. So we’re teaching each other all the things we’re learning.

Literacy Work Stations

During our reading and writing time each day we have a work station to do. Some work stations help us practice high frequency words, words that we read and write a lot. We have a library work station at which we can get new books to read, read magazines and the Kids Post, or read our morning messages.

Reading Pictures

Wordless Picture Books 2 Wordless Picture Books 3

As we learn to read one thing that is helpful is looking at the pictures. In order to practice, we read the pictures in books without words. A big part of reading is thinking about what is happening in the story or what you are learning. We can do that through pictures.

Wordless Picture Books 4 Wordless Picture Books 5

A medida que aprendemos a leer una cosa que es útil es mirar las fotos. Con el fin de la práctica, leemos las imágenes en los libros sin palabras. Una gran parte de la lectura está pensando en lo que está sucediendo en la historia o lo que está aprendiendo. Podemos hacerlo a través de fotos.

Morning Meeting with Family

Family Morning Meeting 2 Family Morning Meeting 3

Last Friday several parents joined us for our morning meeting. It was wonderful for our students to show off how they start our days. They do it almost completely on their own. After the meeting ended, some parents were able to stay and read with their children. It was a fabulous way to start a day at school.

El viernes pasado varios padres se unieron a nosotros para nuestra reunión de mañana. Fue maravilloso para nuestros estudiantes para lucir como empiezan a nuestros días. Lo hacen casi por completo por su cuenta. Después de terminar la reunión, algunos padres pudieron quedarse y leer con sus hijos. Era una manera fabulosa de empezar el día en la escuela.
