Our class is enjoying our current read aloud, Wonder.
We are already learning so much and reflecting on the kind of person we are and who we want to be. After we read about August’s teacher, Ms. Petosa, leaving her job on Wall Street to pursue her “dream” of teaching, we started to think about our “dreams.” Listen as we share some of the dreams we have about our future.

We will make our mark!
There’s no better time to talk about beginning something great than at the beginning of a new school year. In the book, The Dot, by Peter H. Reynolds, a child’s teacher gives her the encouragement she needs to “make her mark” by simply beginning. This encouragement is just what she needs to begin down the road of creativity, bravery, and ultimately, making a difference.
First, we began to make our mark by designing our dots. Then we explored some augmented reality by using the app, Quiver. We had a fantastic discussion about the author’s purpose in writing, The Dot. We will share more on that later. For now, take a peek at some of our fun!
How will you make your mark?
