Mason made a new friend when he mimed with Anderson. You can learn more about miming and making friends here on our Books Alive page. WE even learned how to mime,
We met Peter Brown in this video! We learned Peter Brown spends A LOT of time thinking about the STORY and planning his book BEFORE he illustrates the pictures..
We got new red notebooks to practice our sight words. A sight word means we are learning words we have to know for reading and writing. These words are tricky!
WENT and WANT our the newest words.
We are also learning about th and f at the bringing of words. Sometimes it's hard to hear the difference of Th and F.

We welcomed a new friend this week. She is a great friend to us all!
Each day is a step in becoming who we will be. Learning is in the process, and not one step is more or less important than the one before or after. Becoming learners who believe in themselves and who are willing to take the risks necessary to grow takes deliberate patience and recognition. Enable our early learners to continue on this journey, honor all the steps on the way.
To honor and celebrate our journey we are joining the Celebration Link-Up with Ruth Ayers. Each week Mrs. Ayers will host a Celebration Link-Up on her web site Discover, Play, Build. Thank you Ruth for this place of celebration!
This week some kids illustrated their celebrations and some kids wrote about their celebrations, but we all celebrated! Pictured above are celebrations of books, a birthday, the playground, the lunchroom, taking pictures, families, and our apple video (see below).
Not pictured is my celebration of these magnificent kids! I am in awe of their caring and empathy for others, their willingness to push through the struggle of learning new things, and making new friends. I am a grateful teacher.
