Today during Writers Workshop I modeled writing a small moment story and stretching out the sounds in tricky words. My story was about my exciting carpool travels! On the way to school I saw these adorable pigs! The students begged me to put the photo on our here they are:  :)

Just keep SWIMming...

We are SWIMming away in Mrs. Scott's class! We've been awarded The Golden Spatula (oooooh ahhhhh)for displaying nice manners and behavior in the cafeteria...and are working hard to win it again! The first grade class that receives The Golden Spatula the most will earn a class celebration at the end of the 1st quarter! Who knew lunchtime could be so much FUN?!!

I am EXCITED to report that we have earned class compliments in ALL of our specials this week! It is so nice to know that the class can continue to SWIM with different teachers.  SWIM! SWIM! SWIM! Here are our "Student of the Day" winners so far...Way to go!!! :)
Peace. Love. Happiness. We are working hard to learn how to solve little problems all by ourselves! When students have a "conflict" or "misunderstanding" they first try to solve it on their own in the lovely, "Peace Place". I am always amazed at how well this magical corner works. The easy-to-read script helps students express their feelings and concerns and allows them to resolve any issues so they can go back to learning with a happy face!

These boys and girls are definitely meeting my HIGH expectations!

Pencils, Glue Sticks, and Tissues...OH MY!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for all of the wonderful supplies that came in last week. I really appreciate your support. What a way to kick off a new school year!
We had a fantastic first week of first grade! The students are already SWIMming and giving their best effort. We are still spending a lot of time going over procedures and expectations to build a strong foundation for a successful school year. We are also spending a lot of our time building a loving and peaceful classroom community. We conduct two student interviews a day. The boys and girls are really enjoying taking turns in the spotlight and getting to know one another.

Well I guess it's time to pack my lunch for tomorrow...mmmmmmmmm PB&J!

Here's to another super week in first grade!
