Ms. Darby's Class

Ms. Darby's third grade class read some of their writing to us today.  Third graders did a wonderful job with their personal narratives.  Scholars used dialogue, descriptions and feelings to make their writing come alive.  Kindergarten students enjoyed listening to the stories.  We look forward to reading our writing to them.  Thank you Ms. Darby's class.

Partner Reading

We love reading!  Today we read to our reading partners.  We understand that there are different ways to read.  We know we can read the pictures, read the words and/or retell the story.  We practiced giving our reading partners compliments. Kindergarten students complimented each other on taking turns, sharing books, being good listeners, and looking at books while partners were reading.
