Yummy Pumpkin Doughnuts!

Thank you, Cora and Dittmar Farms Mill Creek Valley, for the yummy treats today! Everyone loved them! Some of us were able to stretch the snack out so that it lasted most of the day!

Welcome Steve Cotler


Steve Cotler came to visit last week. It was fun to listen to him talk about writing books. We are reading his first Cheesie Mack book in class. Check out our pictures! 

Close Read


We spend a lot of time being detectives in our room. Detectives look for details and clues which is exactly what we do when we do close reads. Ask your child to show you how close reads are done.

Literacy Night

Last Thursday several people attended Literacy Night. Thank you to Paul and Diane Sipiera from the Planetary Science Foundation for speaking. Students and their guests also were able to do some writing about space, do a puzzle, and use stickers to label planets as well as eat space ice cream. Thanks to everyone who attended!
