Literacy activities

We are working on getting our Daily 5 activity time going. These are literacy activities students are learning to do independently in preparation for when we start reading groups. So far the kids have been introduced to Read to Self, Read to Someone, Listening to Reading, and Word work. 



Plain City library visit

Amanda, from the Plain City library, visited FES on Friday. She read three wonderful books to the kindergarten classes and encouraged them to visit and get their very own library cards. The books she shared were Mo’s Mustache, Friendshape, and The Day The Crayons Came Home. 



Third Grade Book Buddies

On Fridays we get together with our third grade book buddies. This is a fun time for the kindergarteners to hear another student read to them and hopefully expose them to more books and help foster the love of reading. The third graders experienced book buddies when they were in kindergarten and they love that they now get the chance to read to someone younger. We are partnered with Mrs. Pearson’s class this year.
