Writing Workshop and Library with Mrs. Hemsey


Kindergarten Plus continues to be a busy place for our students.  Since it is already the middle of January and Parent - Teacher Conferences are just around the corner, we have been busy completing lots of assessments so you can see how much we have learned so far in Kindergarten.  We think you are going to be impressed with our progress!

In Writing Workshop, we are learning how to use our Writing Partners.  We have found that when we are planning a story, it is extremely helpful to chat with our partners about it.  Our partners listen to us and ask us about any details we may be able to add to our stories.  We are also learning about planning out a story before we write it.  Today we told our stories "across our fingers" when we explained our ideas to our partners.  Working with our writing partners is really helping us.  :-)

For Specialist time today, we went to the Library with Mrs. Hemsey.  Mrs. Hemsey is teaching us about the Caldecott Medal.  We checked out new books and worked on a word search activity with her.

Our "Good Stuff" snowmen are hanging in the hallway.  Thank you all so much for sending in such good stuff!
