Erin Ceres
Welcome to Mrs. Ceres' Class!
2020-2021 School Year


I am looking forward to a great year filled with determination, hard work, taking risks, reflecting on our learning process, and celebrating reaching our goals!

We are working on getting to know ourselves as readers.  What kinds of books do we love? Where is our perfect reading spot? We will be getting to know the characters in our books and talking to our reading partners about our favorites! We will also be working on improving our stamina by reading a little more each day.  

We have begun writing workshop by decorating our writing notebook with all of the special things in our lives.  We will be collecting ideas, drafting stories, revising, editing, and publishing our first personal narrative.  At home talk to your child about special memories and help them tell the beginning, middle, and end of the story.  We will be working on adding lots of details by making the characters in our stories talk, think, and move!

We will be starting off the year mastering our addition and subtraction facts by using different strategies such as "make a ten."  We should know all of our facts through 20 in a "snap."  Keep practicing at home!  We will also be solving story problems and practicing by drawing a picture and writing a number sentence to help us solve different types of problems.
