In Miss Brown’s first grade class, students are solving story problems and writing equations. We made posters and did a gallery walk to share our thinking!
In Miss Colaccino's Second Grade Class we have been working on strategies we can use when we come across tricky words while reading. We have learned strategies such as breaking apart the tricky words letter by letter, looking for vowel teams we know, looking for words that we know inside of the tricky word, and we have also been using what is happening at that moment in the story to think about what that tricky word could be. We have spent some time reading, stopping and jotting on sticky notes, and also sharing out the tricky words we found and what strategies we used to decode the word. We are also working on building our independent reading stamina. We are growing so much as readers and learning so many new skills!
The students in Mrs. Hagstrom's first grade class have been practicing their "Good Reading Habits" during partner reading. They help their partner instead of "telling" when figuring out tricky words.
Miss Ferreri's class had a blast on the kindergarten field trip to Brown's Harvest! We went on a hayride, made our way through a corn maze, picked pumpkins and even had a special treat! It was a wonder"fall" day!
The students in Mrs. Peterson's preschool class have been learning about apples. To foster their creativity and strengthen their fine motor skills they created "apple pies". The students used apples as stamps for the center of their pie and used sponges around the outside edges. They completed the activity by arranging a "lattice" crust on the top.
Ms. Costas' second grade class is combining academics and fun! They are practicing quietly and buddy reading under the blanket forts that they created, using engineering and problem solving to make a structure that lasts!

Fall storytime with Mrs. Bava was chilly but a great success! Thank you Kelly Lane Families for attending. It was fun to cuddle up with blanket and listen to some good stories!
