We read No, David! by David Shannon.  Then we brainstormed characteristics of peacemakers and peacebreakers.  We made peacemakers because all of us want to be peaceMAKERS!
 You gotta love the hair!

We LOVE Math!

During the first week of school, we explored our math manipulatives by counting, sorting, and making patterns.  Since then, we have started go to independent math tubs that we also love!

We LOVE Daily 5!

 We are totally in love with our new classroom library!
 We are building our stamina daily during Read to Self!
 We get to choose a spot to sit.
 We love sitting in Mrs. Hendricks' rocking chair!
 Our new pillows are comfy!
 Mrs. Hendricks lets us sit at her Backstage table!
 The beanbags are our favorite spot!
We LOVE trading our books every morning if we arrive on time!

And...We're off to a GREAT start!

Here's how our first day went...
We are such hard workers!
 We know how to sit like 5 Star Listeners!
 We also know how to raise a quiet hand! 
 We love Morning Meeting!
 We know how to line up quickly and quietly!
New friends! 
 Jamia drank her Jitter Juice and appears to have NO first day jitters!
 Jitter juice is delicious!
 We were so well behaved on the first day of school that we earned Magic Playdoh!
 It was white but changed colors to show us we will have a GREAT year!
