Right to Read Week Wrap Up

This week was Right to Read Week at East. Our class read 280 minutes throughout the week! We are becoming great readers and their stamina is building. We read with 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade throughout the week.

We had a couple guest readers come in to read to us. 2 of my aunts were able to come read to us! One is an artist who has written a book called "Oh No! More Snow!" (You can find the book online from Barnes and Noble) She showed us how she did the linocut print making. She also helped us make the valentine's cards your kiddos brought home.

Another one of my aunts came to read Snowmen at Night. We looked for different items in the story as she read. We wrote about what our own snowmen might do at night to go into a class book for our classroom library.
We continued to work on 2-dimensional shapes this week. I have just a couple left to check for our chapter test, which we did one-on-one with me instead of a paper test this time. We made shapes out of components using marshmallows as our vertices and toothpicks as our sides.

Next week, we will start 3-dimensional shapes.
