River Class News



Our latest Big Fish




MLK research




 River students worked in groups to come up with their own Big Words as part of our important work around the MLK celebration. Our work was based on the book, Martin's Big Words by Doreen Rappaport.


Each cooperative group picked a word and then made it into a sentence.


Some groups had to work hard to come to consensus on their word.


They decorated their words together.


These Big Words are now on our bulletin board outside River Class.


We hope you will stop by and take a look.


Fun with telling time



In math groups we have been reviewing telling time. 


We began by reading a book entitled If You Were a Minute by Trisha Speed Shaskan.



 Children had fun practicing telling time using the Jungle Time app on the iPads.
