Never have I had a class earn/spell a "compliment word" so fast.  3 days it took them.  3 days.  Take a look here, or click on the "Compliments" tab at the top of the page to check out their progress over the course of the year.

Everyday, for 15-20 minutes after lunch, we have a read-aloud.  This is easily my favorite time of the day.  Yesterday we started our first book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.  We are already on chapter 5.  Golden tickets, here we come!

Also, I like to choose books that have a movie version as well, so we can compare and contrast.  When the time comes, I will be sure to verify that movie watching is acceptable from all of you.

Off and Runnin'

Today we talked about expectations, reminders, read a few books, went to art and an assembly, and even did some writing!  Oh yeah...we also had to store and organize all of those supplies.  Oh my, the supplies!  At least that's over!
