Camp Write Along- Day 1

Today kicked off our first day of "Camp Write Along." It was full of singing, reading, purposeful talk, brainstorming, writing and even eating.

We began the day with a message from our Principal, Mrs. Daniilidis.

These announcements came from Fabulous Fourth Grade Froggies.

Then we started with a chant directed by my student teacher, Mrs. Ahmad.

Next, students gathered around our campfire for a shared reading of The Junkyard Wonders by Patricia Polacco. The focus was on the "Wonders" that the students created. We also discussed how Trisha's class was unique,what made Mrs. Peterson a great teacher, and how everyone's dream can come true.

Finally students, were introduced to the writing prompt and they began writing.

Here is the snack for today made especially by me!
