Our class had a special new student in class today. Her name? Atenea Callejas! :-)
The students were so surprised when Atenea joined them on the carpet for class. She was so polite and made sure to great each one of the them with a sweet, slobbery kiss or a soft touch from her cold, wet nose. Throughout the day she worked with the students as they used their writing skills to try and persuade me to bring Atenea another day, practiced their capitalization and punctuation, and rotated through their math stations. Some of the students even got to read a book to Atenea as she lounged around on the carpet during Reader's Workshop. Ask your child to tell you all about our exciting day with our furry, four-legged new student!
