Chicks in the Room!

We had three baby chicks hatch over the weekend.  They have been such a welcome and calming addition to our classroom.  You can see that we are taking turns reading to our chicks during D.E.A.R. time.  How sweet is that?

Endangered Animal Research

The past few weeks we have been heavily engaged in researching and reporting about the endangered animal that they chose.  You can see that each group has an adult to guide the research and report process.  The kids have been doing an amazing job!

MLK and Ruby Bridges

Over the month of January, we have been reading about Martin Luther King Jr., Ruby Bridges and Rosa Parks.  We have had some awesome discussions and done some writing pieces about these people.  On Friday, after reading about Ruby Bridges, I showed a real picture of Ruby with her first grade classmates.  It was a beautiful shot of four children out on the playground having fun.  A student raised her hand and asked "Which one is Ruby?".  How perfect is that?

Shopping for Books

Every Monday each student picks out five new books that are a "Good Fit" for them.  Here are some pictures of them shopping for books that other students read last week.  So serious!
