Thankful for Reading Buddies

Our 1st grade Reading Buddies joined us on the Friday before Thanksgiving to create these fun Turkey Glyphs. My 1st grade teaching colleague is a ninja at coming up with fun activities for our classes to do together.

Hope your Thanksgiving was turkey-rific! ;)

Buddies and Mummies....

This year my 6th grade class has teamed up with the 1st grade class in our school to be Reading Buddies. Every Friday we meet together to read and learn. Today was the last Friday of the first quarter and also the last Friday we meet before Halloween, so we had a little celebration. After the 6th graders and their 1st grade partners were finished with their reading they all came back into my classroom to have a little fun creating their mummies before we had a treat and watched poor Charlie Brown and Linus waiting for the Great Pumpkin.  There were lots of smiles and laughs and I'd have to say the 1st and 6th grade mummies turned out pretty well.

Another year begins...

The smell of new crayons filling the autumn air
The sound of crisp, clean pages turning
The pointed touch of sharpened lead
The sight of polished floors and painted doors
The flavor of an apple, gifted
All signaling a new beginning


May your new school year be a wonderful one...
