This morning we had our first Santa Lucia rehearsal.  Our first practice went really well.  The first graders were excited to share with the kinders about this special tradition and celebration.  I took a few photos of our rehearsal this morning and they are attached.

I also read the book “Lucia Morning in Sweden” before the kinders went home.  It is a lovely story about this special holiday that is celebrated in Sweden each year on December 13.

We are busy writing our small moments during writers workshop.  This morning we had a fun mini-lesson on editing / revising our stories.

The learners are making steady progress with their personal narratives.   All of them have chosen their small moment topic and have completed the touch, tell, and sketch part of the process.  Several of them have also  begun the next step of writing their story.
