Les trois petits cochons!

Here we are! Our plays have been recorded! After lots of practice and patience, we've published these videos just for you! Though at times our pronunciation may not be 100% perfect, or we may mix up a few words here and there, we worked really hard in our cooperative groups to share the story of The Three Little Pigs, or as we call it here, "Les trois petits cochons!"  We hope you enjoy and leave a comment too!

Stories of Kindness

How do you choose to be kind? In Room 4, we have lots of stories that celebrate the times others have been kind to us and wanted to write about it! 

We built these stories over time, first by reading the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio, (which was absolutely LOVED!), discussing the themes and characters of the story and what it means to be kind, brainstorming ideas for our personal stories, writing rough drafts, revising and editing multiple times and finally publishing our stories in this book!

A very special thanks goes to Nancy McLean who wrote us thoughtful letters, visited our classroom community, helped us develop our stories of kindness and encouraged us to continue writing during our week long Writing Residency.

We hope after reading these stories, you too will #choosekind.
