This is a letter from Andy our technology coordinator.
It was another great week in 1LJY! The students played the secret friend game and tried to be extra friendly to one classmate in particular. They recorded their actions each night. Today the students told the class who they suspected had them as a secret friend and then found out who their real secret friend was. Only a few guessed correctly. Next week, we will play the game again. We imagine the results will be different.
Two literacy groups have chosen names for themselves. They are the Awesome Kids and The Silver Hamsters. The other groups are still stuck with the BORING names Ms. Lawler chose; The Tables, and The Chairs. When they see the amazing labels Mr. Jackson will makes for the groups, they may get more serious about changing names.
Today we met with our 5th grade buddies and they helped the students to type their ideas for a book they are making. Next week, they will begin to organize and illustrate their books.
