Hip, Hip, 'Boo-ray'!

This month, we are celebrating Georgia as our class' estimation sensation!  She had the closest estimation to the number of spooky Halloween peeps stuffed inside October's jar.  We loved her shirt too, which we thought was the perfect attire for the winning contender!

Author Spotlight

It's October and our Writer's Workshop is well underway.  This week, we had the treat of hearing from several authors who shared their newly finished books with us.  Angela, Logan, and Ani-jay did a great job including a beginning, middle, and end in their stories and facilitating the class discussion when asking their fellow students for 'comments, questions, and suggestions' in response to their writing.  The class did an amazing job giving our authors feedback too, and helped set the tone for a bright year of writing!

Super Savvy 'Sept-estimator'

Congratulations to Luke!   He correctly estimated the number of crayon erasers in September's estimation jar.  He also told our class that he practices counting with his dad, and we can see that his hard work has payed off!  Way to go buddy!
