    Legally Blonde Jr. The Musical

    Mrs. Deitchler and

    Mrs. Tuecke are team teaching a group of 2nd and 3rd graders. This

    group meets daily for 30 minutes to review

    Principles of Fundations being

    taught in their classrooms. This includes decoding

    words by syllables and understanding spelling

    options for different sounds - especially long vowels. The students also work on high frequency and sight words that don't necessarily follow spelling rules but appear so often in print. The teachers meet

    briefly each week to share duties in planning and gathering what's needed for the week's lessons. Each Friday, the students write in a

    journal so they have the opportunity to apply what they've learned about these things. Mrs. Deitchler and Mrs. Tuecke reply to

    students. This weekly exchange gives them the opportunity to get to know students better and provides encouragement to students to know that what they write is important for an audience!

They have oats, peanut butter, honey, sun flower seeds, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg and shredded carrots! Tess recruited the class to help measure and stir. Tess wanted to show the students an example of a fun breakfast food that includes whole grains and veggies, but the bites

    would also make an awesome snack anytime!

    On March 7th Kindergarten students invited their parents and grandparents in to share books the students had written. The students had been studying how to make pattern books and were able to choose one book they wanted to share with parents, grandparents and staff members. The students really enjoyed being able to share their books and look forward to doing it again.

    Mrs. Erickson and Mrs. Crane's class celebrated students reaching individual goals. As a class they have earned 94 stickers. Great workers!!
