Students in Mrs. Sessions' class have been working hard on our Realistic Fiction Writing unit. Students use a variety of tools, such as anchor charts, checklists and goal sheets to remind them of the basic qualities and expectations in their writing. This allows the teacher to step back and leaves the students to take ownership of their writing and see their growth.
Snowy Song Alert from Mrs. Spellman-Cloutier's kindergarten class! We learned a new song that we sang and acted out to the tune of "I'm a Little Teapot".
