CASTELLANO 5º, “Botellas de pesadillas”

Written by Carmela Gil. Posted in Castellano, ES CSCS

botellas de pesadillas“¿Qué ocurriría si las peores pesadillas que puedas imaginar se convirtieran en realidad? ¿Cómo es posible luchar contra una pesadilla? ¿Te atreverías a enfrentarte a tus miedos más secretos? Ése es el reto que deberá afrontar Alberto. Nunca ha sido un niño valiente, pero a pesar de sus temores no tiene alternativa: si no atrapa a todas las pesadillas antes del anochecer, sus efectos perdurarán para siempre.”

En la clase de Castellano de 5º estamos empezando a trabajar en nuestro Plan Lector. A partir del libro de Marta Gené Camps, Botellas de pesadillas, y antes de leer la obra, elaboraremos la ficha, leeremos el resumen que aparece en la contraportada e imaginaremos qué puede ocurrir en la historia. Buscaremos también información sobre la autora y la ilustradora e incluso entraremos en el blog de esta última para conocer sus libros preferidos.

Durante las próximas semanas, y a medida que avancemos en la lectura de los diferentes capítulos, realizaremos diversas actividades en torno a la novela (análisis del nuevo vocabulario, descripción de los personajes, etc.).

Por último, nos convertiremos en críticos literarios y compartiremos nuestra opinión sobre el libro basándonos en las partes que más nos han emocionado o nos han hecho reir.

Plants

Written by AngieB. Posted in Nursery

In Nursery we have started our new unit of study: Plants! 

What is a plant? How do plants grow? What happens when we plant a seed? What do they need to grow? We will be working on answering all these questions and more!

This week we will be putting some white beans in zip lock bags and we will watch them grow roots and a sprout. In order to develop the students phonemic awareness we will also be reading this lovely poem about a growing flower.

Also this week we will grow our very own plant! In order to do this, we ask parents to please bring a small clay pot to school someday this week. In class we will paint it, put soil in it, put some seeds in, water it, place it in a sunny spot and hopefully a plant will grow!

Mystery Readers

Written by Erin Erwin. Posted in 1st Grade

On Thursday, Ms. Laura’s class had their first mystery reader! The children loved guessing who the mystery reader would be and were thrilled when Iliana, Monica’s mom, walked in the door during Reading Workshop! Because it happened to be Saint Patrick’s day, Iliana explained the Irish holiday to the kids and read a wonderful story about a Leprechaun.

Be our next mystery reader! If you’re available on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday from 11:15-11:45 we would love to invite you to read a book to your child’s class. Please contact your room parent (Tiffany or Iliana) to arrange a day to come in.
