Word Pyramids

We have been learning different "chunks" or different types of word families to help us decode while reading. For example, we learned that "oo" can be found in words like "good, hook, stood." We practiced making word pyramids to help us remember how build words in the same families!

Opinion Writing

We have started a new writing unit! We have been learning about how to form an opinion and how to convince your reader with a lot of reasons!

Today we read the book, "What if you had Animal Teeth?" and wrote about which animal teeth we thought would be the best to have and why. 

Great white shark teeth were a popular choice!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Thank you to all the parents who came and helped out at our Valentine's Day party! Everyone's boxes turned out fabulous. I am so lucky to have 21 lovable valentine's this year. :)

Problem Solvers

Today we are celebrating how to be a problem solver at BEU with a puzzle day! 

Opinion Writing

We have started a new writing unit involving book reviews. Students have a chance to express their opinions about different books we read and write their own review about it!
I have a feeling my students will be very good at expressing their opinions!
