I hope everyone is having a wonderful break, I am now that we are nice and comfy in our new house!
For my kids...I will search the net and see what fun games I can add to the blog. Please play the fun ones a lot, cause you guys know if it's not "educational" than ya can't play it when we get back to class!!!
Ps- My Dear Josh,
No my friend, the Holiday Packet is not a grade. However, many of the students finished in class and I did look them over. The activities in it were skills that we have discussed, except the tan part of the Weekly Reader. If you are having trouble then you can bring it back when school opens and I will be happy to help you figure it out, ok?

Monitor and Clarify
- read ahead
- look at the pictures
- think about what you already know
Sometimes one strategy might not work for what you are trying to figure out. If that happens, keep trying the others until you get it!

I hope you all are well.
I had to miss school because my husband had to spend Wednesday night, Thursday and Friday at the hospital. He is feeling better now, and I will be back on Monday.
Good news for students...no spelling test on Wednesday since I was unable to do the pretest on Thursday.
I will begin working with students one at a time during centers to check reading levels, comprehension (how well you understand what you read), and fluency (how easily you read without mistakes).
Centers will begin to change a bit, too. I will officially make the computers a center, as well as having a writing, and listening center, too. It will take a few days to get our "new" centers up and running, but I know they will be fun and help us become better readers and writers!
I am ready to get back to school and I can't wait to see you all there!
PS- Practice your doubles in Math...we are going to make doubles riddles on Monday!

It is great to see that ya'll are visiting the site.
I look forward to hearing some silly stories over the next few days. Be thinking of some silly ideas to write about, we are each going to choose one of our stories and publish it... soon!
Also, when your hangin' out at home, think about "matter." Ask yourself, "is this a solid, liquid or gas.?" Notice the properties of the things you have! Here are a few interesting items to explore:
Solid? Liquid? or Gas?
Oh yeah, if you use the Math link and do the drills I bet you will know all the ways to make 10 and all know doubles to 20...without having to count on your fingers! :-)
