Hopes and Dreams
We read a book called, Matthew's Dream by Leo Lionni about a mouse who discovered his dream was to become an artist. In first grade we created our own Hopes and Dreams about first grade. After sharing our Hopes and Dreams we created classroom rules. These rules will help us to have a safe learning environment to achieve our Hopes and Dreams.

What is a star student?
- Everyday a star students is selected to be our leader for the day.
- This star student shares an All about me poster (provided by the teacher). The star student then asks for "share backs" and selected students share something they learned about the star student.
- We use magnetic letters to learn how many vowels and consonants are in their name. We also use the magnetic letters to build new words.
- The star student also leads the morning meeting and is the line leader for the day.
