Mystery Reader

We had our first mystery reader of the year! Mr. Wiseman shared with us the story Click Clack Moo. It's one of our favorites. We also enjoyed learning about London, England, where Mr. Wiseman was born.

A Fairy Tale

We have been learning about different genres in class. Recently, we compared many well known fairy tales and became familiar with the common elements in these stories. Mrs. Partyka read aloud a modern fairy tale called The Tale of Despereaux. Despereaux is a mouse who saves the princess he loves from the dungeon. We also watched the movie and compared how the book and movie were alike and different. Despereaux lives happily ever after!

The Sun And The Wind

The sun and the wind debate who is more powerful. A man's coat is held on tighter as the wind blows and it gets cold. The sun competes by creating warmth. The sun wins as the man takes off his coat. Gwyneth, Trenton and Cameron enjoyed sharing this readers theater story with us.

Stone Slop?

We read the folktale Stone Soup and discussed the meaning of the tale. Our play group this week did a new version of the story called Stone Slop! Even monsters can get in on the action!

Native American Stories

After learning a lot about Native Americans, the students created stories about them using pictographs and words. They really got into the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday and included how grateful the Native Americans were about our land's natural resources.

Another Grand Performance!

Wow! We have the best actors in our class. Here our group performs The Three Bullfrogs!

The Brementown Rappers
