In January we began learning all about 3D shapes! So on Friday after we could identify all 3D shapes we had a math lesson where the students were able to create 3D shapes with play dough. This brought on a lot of discussion and students started to use vocabulary like (flat, points, round,etc..) This activity lent itself well for the upcoming week were we began to talk more about the attributes and we started to compare them.
Also in January we really started on building our stamina for independent reading time. Here are some pictures of the students working with partners during independent reading time. It was amazing to see the students using all the things they had learned thus far.

Coming back from vacation is always crazy. It's like the beginning of the school year with rules and routines, however it doesn't take them as long to catch on and this year the transition seemed to go very smoothly.
|Another amazing thing happened coming back from vacation! We received a new rug. This rug was donated from Donors Choose which is an awesome website that help out teachers in need I am forever grateful for my new rug.|
