This week Mrs. Miller's first grade classroom earned 300 bark cards for showing the Bulldog Way. They celebrated by bringing a stuffed animal to school. The animals are hard at work learning the Bulldog Way from their first grader. They are learning what it looks like and sounds like during IDR (Individualized Daily Reading). It is important to pick a "just right" book, choose a spot that allows them to focus on their reading, read the whole time to build their stamina and think about their reading! The first graders are even teaching them strategies to use when they come to a word they do not know! These animals sure are lucky to have such amazing first graders!!!!
