Welcome to 5th Grade!

I have been busy working for two weeks now, getting ready for the first day with students on Tuesday!  This is the front bulletin board outside my classroom.  I just decorated it today!

I am so excited for this school year.  Today I set up our class with first grade buddies.  We are going to be reading picture books to their class.  Our read alouds will be a great way for us to learn about the structure of narratives, practice our oral presentation skills, and engage young readers in literature through kinesthetic movement!  At the end of our unit, my students will write their own high quality picture book to be shared in our school library.  Very exciting!
