Book Review by Ruby
We’re reading the book Mrs. Piggle Wiggle by Betty MacDonald. Mrs. Piggle Wiggle just got a call because she is very good at teaching children how to like washing dishes and making beads and doing others tuff –Ruby

I like math centers and writers workshop.
News From Mrs. Guttin
We have had yet another great week rich with learning, making, and exploring. We have spent lots of time this week on revising, editing, and publishing our “Small Moment” stories. Students have been working meticulously to publish their very best work. You will either get to enjoy a preview of their book or the actual thing at parent teacher conferences!
Alongside our writing, we have been reading up a storm. Students are settling in to our classroom, specifically our reading center time. On various days they participate in guided reading, word work games, computer reading games, find-out-about non-fiction center, independent reading, and partner reading. If you ask me, I think their favorite center is “Independent Reading”.
We did some great hands-on learning and exploring with plants this week. During our science time, we explored different kinds of seeds from various fruits and vegetables. Students took out the seeds, drew the shape, and counted them. Later on they will graph the amounts of seeds on a bar graph so that they can clearly see the different between seed amounts.
We also got to go to the garden and harvest the last of the basil that we picked last year. Sophie even discovered the seeds inside the basil flower! Now, we will attempt to dry them and sprout them once again. Once we harvested the basil carefully, we made pesto! Yum! Our room smelled heavenly. Thanks Mrs. Woods for helping us make delicious food from our garden!
