LITERACY NEWS (January 2014)

During January students are learning to write informational text to meet common core state standard:

  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.K.2 Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose informative/explanatory texts in which they name what they are writing about and supply some information about the topic.
  • Ask your child to tell you about his or her informational writing.

 January 21, 2014: Our Ezra Keats Family Reading Night, funded by a grant from the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation, enriched our students culturally through art. Many family and community members joined together for activities. Snacks were served, and each child left with a book!
