I Scream For Good Books

Have you read a book you really LOVED?? Want to recommend it to others?? Well you can by creating a "Book BUZZ". Our class is working on creating a "Book BUZZ" about a good book they have read. Students have to write a short summary about their book and tell friends why they liked the book. We "scream" for good books!!

Going once, going twice, SOLD to the highest bidder! Have you heard about our exciting auction?? Our auction is held every other Friday. Students with an A in conduct for the two weeks can participate. Our students bid on items according to the amount of behavior bucks that they have earned. Items range from candy, toys to lunch in the classroom. Thank you to all the parents who have donated items to be auctioned off. Our auction would not be a HUGE success without your help.

Oreo Writing

In Writer's Workshop, we are learning how to add details to our Narrative Writing. We started off with a fun activity to get our juices flowing :). Students used their five senses to come up with details about an Oreo cookie. They had to imagine that they were writing to someone who has never seen or tasted an Oreo before.
Yum, Yum! It's black and white. What is it? It's an Oreo! An Oreo has a black cookie on the top and bottom. In the middle, it is creamy and sweet. On the top it has a little pattern. The middle is soft and smooth but the cookie is rough. Crunch, Crunch, yum, yum is the sound you hear when you take a bite of this delicious cookie!

Yummy, yummy Oreo. Black with cream on the inside. Rough on the outside and soft on the inside. It smells like coffee and cream and tastes like a chocolate cookie.When I bite into it, it's hard and cruncy. Yummy, yummy Oreo.
