Student Portfolios

Today we will be bringing home our term 1 portfolios. We use our portfolio as a sample of our work to date. This term all the samples have been chosen by the teacher. As we move into term 2 the students will be doing some self-reflection and making their own choices. Please have your child show you and talk about the samples in their binder. We have talked about how to do this at school. At the back of the binder is a sheet for you and your child to fill out together. I want you to come up with 3 STARS (things they have done well) and 1 WISH (something to work on).

Please return this portfolio to school when you come for Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences next week.

Contact me with any questions.


The Book With No Pictures



Yesterday when we went to the library, Mrs. Woodward pulled out a new book to read us. The title was The Book With No Pictures, and it truly is just that- a picture book without any pictures. We loved this book- it is soo funny. I am sure we laughed so loud that the whole school heard us. What made the experience even more enjoyable was the way that Mrs. Woodward read the story…she is a very fluent reader! I am going to have to buy this book for our class…it is wonderful 🙂
