Hope you all were able to enjoy the unexpected snow break and that those families who lost electricity and heat survived their adventure!
Here are some “Ask Me’s” to check in with your child to get us all back into the rhythm of school:
-Ask Me how I figured out our family members' ages on my timeline.
- Ask Me what my opinion is of Tomie DePaola’s “Strega Nona” or “Big Anthony”? Which did I think was the best and what were the reasons I thought it was the best?
- Ask Me what is happening in our read-aloud of the “BFG” by Roald Dahl? Did you know that this will be in theatres as a movie this summer?
-Ask me about how to take charge of my reading and how to decide how a book wants to be read.
-Ask Me about my Cinderella opinion writing. Which Cinderella version did I choose as the best and what were my reasons?
-Ask Me who our Mystery Reader was this week and what did she read?
-Ask Me about our 5th grade Writing Buddies and what we did today with them.
Zane helps Jay talk about his "Ninja" writing.
Ninja's in action. They find school and think about writing. (Check out the pencil in the thought bubble.)
Time off during Friday Finale to create with blocks: Nooreddeen and Alex.
Thank you for helping the children help me celebrate my birthday in school.

Thank you very much for the gift of the big purple yogibo bean bag chair given to our class by all the parents in late December. Here is a picture of the class, all actually touching the new gift!
