We Are All Set For Conferences!

Posted by Christine Frisiras on 3/8/2020

Thank you, everyone, for signing up for conferences!  We are going to have a great couple of days celebrating your children!  I'm looking forward to it!

The Trillium Creek Adult Social was a great time!  It was fun to see so many people coming out to support our students and school!

In Reading Workshop, we are becoming Avid Non-Fiction Readers. This will be easy for us to do with our Frog unit.  We are working on making a Non-Fiction report on frogs in class.  Every student will be choosing a specific frog at home and making a research poster.  We talked about how this is THEIR project.  Please do not do this for them.  You can help them find information but please have them do the writing themselves.  I can't wait to see all the projects!  As your child finishes, they can bring in their project.  All students will share their project with our class.  Make sure they practice reading their facts and talking about their poster at home so they are comfortable sharing in front of our class.

In Math Workshop, we will begin writing and creating our own frog story problems.  We have had some practice working with story problems so I feel they are ready to create their own!  You will get to see them during conferences!

In Writing Workshop, we continue working on easy to read writing.  Frog projects will be a great way to practice non-fiction writing.  Facts should be easy to read.  Start with a capital letter.  End with a period.  Spaces.  Neat writing. Interesting.  I am excited for the projects to start coming in!
