Calendars

1st Grade Reading: Flat Stanley on Ice

Hi, friends!

My first graders just finished reading Flat Stanley on Ice. I just love Flat Stanley and was thrilled to find these books in the Scholastic orders!

Dictionary Skills

Last week I blogged on the Virginia is for Teachers site with some activities that my second graders are working on with dictionaries.

Second graders begin to use the dictionary to learn how to use guide words. Gulp. Sigh. And alphabetize to the second and third letter. This is such a hard skill, especially since first graders are only expected to alphabetize to the first letter. So since I have now taught a combination first/second class for two years, I have been able to expose my first graders to more challenging content and get them ready for next year by doing more alphabetical order.

It's Christmas!

Thanksgiving has come and gone. It's hard to believe how quickly November passed by! We had a different kind of Thanksgiving this year, as we headed to our nation's capital for several days and enjoyed visiting the memorials, monuments, and Smithsonians.
December temperatures are here in central Virginia! We went from warm to cold! Our Christmas parade was on Sunday evening and as my husband and I waited, the rain came! It was quite chilly, but we had a great time talking while we waited for our daughters on the float from our church.
