EARLY RELEASE on Thursday May 25 and Friday May 26 at 12:00.

The countdown is on!!!

Mystery Guest

Today we had a mystery challenge! The students were given a map and a question that they were to ask our guest about where she lived.  Our guest could only answer yes or no.  The challenge was to find out the name of our mystery guest’s city and state!  They did an awesome job narrowing down the choices.  I think they even got a kick out of seeing our guest.  She might have looked a little familiar to them;)

Our guest was my twin sister that lives in Roanoke, VA. Ask your student if they guessed her city and state correctly!

Field Day

Field day was a BLAST!!  I heard lots of the kiddos saying this was the best day ever and I have to agree.  Coach Underwood and her staff did an amazing job.  THANK YOU!!!

Be sure and save the date for our Awards Day.  It will be Thursday May 25 at 8:15.  This is an Early Release day so you may check your student out after the program.

Mrs. Buck’s Book Tastin’ Cafe

Let’s start with important dates:

*We will have class pictures on Monday May 1st.

*STAAR test days May 8 & 9.

Now on to today….

We had fun with our Book Tasting.  Book Tastings are a wonderful way to get kids engaged in reading and familiarizing them with a wide variety of genres.  As an extra bonus, they get to practice Read to Self and find good fit books.  At the end of the tasting, they all end up with a list of books that they can’t wait to read.  My hope is that it will spill over to their summer reading as well.  A teacher can hope right;) Ask your student about their favorite part!
