Our annual book frenzy is inspired by The Book Whisperer. My goal is to get books in kiddos hands and create an excited buzz about reading! Boy does it work! I do love all the excitement, but goodness...does it make a mess!
~I have to say that even though we had stacks piled everywhere, one of my sweet kiddos said, "Mrs. Dunn, you have so many books...it doesn't even look like you pulled any from the library!" LOL...love my kiddos!
|Look at this mess of|
a book shelf! ;)
Check out all those books stacked in the cubbies...these are a handful of books that kiddos selected as their starting point in independent reading. As I conference with each of the students and get to know them as readers, their selections may change and/or grow.

and from our amazing PTO...we are spoiled!
We sat down today and discussed our goals for the year. The kiddos were cracking me up with "a bunch" and "a lot." Those were their words, so I went with it! I was proud of our productive discussion! As we move further into reading and writing workshop, we will discuss and clarify what we truly must do to read and write "a lot."
Here are a few of our Morning Messages. Our morning meetings have been smooth and fun so far. Getting to know this silly group of kiddos has been a blast. After this morning's greeting, I learned that I have a TON of pizza lovers in my class, LOL.
|I love when my kiddos come back! |
Here are former students and one current.
Sure do love these sweet boys!
|Derrick sent me this pic today...|
he has transferred to UCA to enter
the teaching program!
I am so proud; I could bust!
With that I will say goodnight...early again!
Happy reading, friends!
