I am thankful for…

It is important to be grateful for our family and the good people in our lives. I am grateful for my family because, they love me so much, they help me and they make my life so much more fun. The first reason I am grateful for my family is they love me so much. For example, every single day when I am home, they give me hugs and kisses. Another reason I am grateful for my family is they help me. For example, my mom, dad and brother help me with my homework. The last reason is they make my life more fun. We have fun by playing legos together, and we help my mom cook. To conclude, my family will always love me, help me, and have fun with me.

What Is Word Study?

What is word study? Word study is when we get our words for the week. Every Monday we get new words. On Monday, when my class gets into the classroom, there is a sheet at our table that my teacher (Mrs. Badurski) hands out. Not everyone gets the same words. Only a few people have the same sort. Since not everyone has the same sort, we have word study partners. In the morning, we cut out our word study words from our word sort. When we are done, we sort  our words. After we sort out our words, we check our words with our word study partner. How do we check? We check by one partner coming over to one table (if we’re not at the same table). We would say a few words at a time, and once we say them our partner goes back to their table and checks if we have the same words in the same column. If we do, then we got the words right. If not, then we figure out our sort. On Monday thru Thursday, we practice our words for the quiz on friday. We practice by using our spelling menu in our word study notebook.    

Learning Cursive!

In school we have been learning cursive. “O-k every one”! My teacher Mrs. Badurski said. “Today we are going to have our first cursive listen” all I could hear was children screaming “Yay”! But not me. My hands were trembling,I felt like I could not breath. I didn’t think that I could do  it. “The letters we will  be learning today are c, a, d, g, h, t, `p and e. Now I was even more nervous. “O-k table masters,get out our new cursive workbooks”! I felt like I could scream! I picked up my pencil, put it on the paper and I started to write a C…… It was so easy! I can’t believe I thought  this was going to be hard! Now I love cursive! Try writing in cursive! Don’t be sloppy!
