This week I am beginning to DRA (Developmental Reading Assessment) student reading levels which means I will be unable to meet with my guided reading groups. I will do book switches with students for their Reading Bags, but please know that they will have 2 COLD books versus 1 hot and 1 cold. Thanks for your understanding with this!
Welcome Miss Amber
We have a new member to our classroom! Miss Amber is a Senior at Eastern Michigan University that will be completing her pre-internship on Tuesday and Thursday mornings in our classroom through mid-December. She will be a wonderful addition to our classroom and we hope that she enjoys her time with us along with preparing to become a teacher :)

-3 Mid Fingers: details
I am sending home a copy of this visual tool for you to use at home when your student is retelling a story in reading or perhaps planning out a writing. Happy Writing!
