We work hard...

And we play hard!!! 

Take a look at these first graders working hard in Daily 5 and Math! Then take a look to see how we rest our brains and have fun!!! 

And a hand-picked bouquet of wildflowers from my very own students! Life is sweet!

Smiling hearts

These things are just a few things that make my heart smile every day! 

Daily 5!

Today we tried our Daily 5 rotations! The students did a great job working in their center. Take a look at: READ TO SELF, WORK IN WRITING, READ TO SOMEONE, WORD WORK, and LISTEN TO READING.

Read to self

Work on writing

Read to Someone

Word Work

Listen to Reading... And responding!

We are working on being PROBLEM SOLVERS during Daily 5 because Mrs Scott & Mrs Riddick are busy teaching reading groups!

What's your schema on schema?! 

We know that SCHEMA is what you already know about something... Whether you learned it from books or movies or pictures or real life experiences! Schema is like a file of information you have on a topic... in your brain! 

We had some pretty good schema about chameleons... And after we read a book about chameleons... Our schema GREW!!! 

Check it out...

Hello, New Firsties!!!

Welcome to Mrs. Scott's Scoop class of 2015-2016! I'm so excited to have you in my class and for the wonderful year ahead of us! We've been spending these first few weeks getting to know eachother and building our kind and caring classroom community. We've also discussed how our room should look and sound during different parts of the day. I'm really proud of this class for learning the expectations and procedures so quickly. Here are some pictures I've taken so far...

As you can see, we are busy FIRST GRADERS!!! 

I think the students AND teachers are exhausted! Starting a new school year is hard work!! Rest up... It's going to be a SUPER year!!!
