I have added some Pre-Winter Break Pictures. I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL Winter Break!!
I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving! Here are some photos of the fun things we did in Room 6 to get us excited for Thanksgiving!
Here are some pictures of our Fun Halloween Stations and the students Book Character Parade costumes. Enjoy 🙂
I have added a slideshow of pictures…a few from the Fun Run and some pictures of the kids who dressed up for our Spirit Days over the last week. Enjoy 🙂
I’ve posted some class photos in two places on my blog. There is a slide show on the right-hand side of the main blog page, and a large version under the In Our Classroom tab –> Class Photos! My goal is to update them every week or so.
We had a GREAT first day in Room 6! As I let the kids know, we had to learn LOTS of rules, but once we show we know the rules, then we can have even more fun!! Thank you all for sending them prepared and ready to learn. You are welcome to send your child with a water bottle for snack and lunch, if that makes everything easier? I think some friends drank their lunch drink at snack!
And just like that, another year has passed!! It has been an AWESOME year in Room 6! I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know all of your children (and your families). These students LOVE learning and have been such a joy to teach this year. I hope everyone had a fantastic summer and they are always welcome to stop by and see me next year 🙂
This year the Librarians of the Henrico County Public Schools and Public Library have joined together to develop suggested reading lists for Henrico elementary students. These lists include a mix of both classic and newer titles and authors, fiction and nonfiction/informational books, and series designed to appeal to those readers who love to immerse themselves in stories and worlds that continue book after book. The booklists also reference a number of websites and online resources devoted to young readers and their families. All of the titles and series listed are available at the Henrico County Public Library, and the Children’s Librarians of HCPL are always ready with additional suggestions and booklists.
Although all of the books suggested on the booklists are recommended, the lists are in no way exhaustive and are meant only to provide a starting place, for those who’d like one, for summer recreational reading. HCPS does not require students to read certain books or even a certain number of books over the summer. The only expectation is that students DO READ—read what they want to read, exploring the topics that fire their interests and fuel their imaginations.
Here is a link to the lists: HCPS Book List
