Mrs. Hoyt

Happy Summer and Happy Reading!

Mrs. Hoyt just returned from a family vacation to Ireland.  With flights that were 6 and 7 hours long she had time to read a book each way!  

I read books that are biographical/historical/fiction and non-fiction.  I wonder what my students are reading?

Next on my list is an educational collection of books as I am starting a summer class tomorrow!  Be sure to let everyone know about summer activities and reads!

Vivan has had a fun and busy summer.  He recently shared that he has been participating in the Burlington Public Library's summer reading program,  keeping a daily journal and has been on a few vacations including trips to Acadia National Park,Wisconsin and to Chicago.  He even found a restaurant named after Mrs. Hoyt in Chicago!

Luca spent some time recently with Elephant and Piggie!  

Luca shared that he had some fun playing with water balloons with his sister.

Mrs. Hoyt

July - 13 
Mrs. Hoyt has been reading through her collection of books, deciding upon which ones she may like to read to students next year.
Here are some of the books she recently read and enjoyed!

In addition to enjoying lots of great books in class, Mrs. Hoyt likes to read books about teaching
 and is taking some classes over the summer.  "I am really enjoying this book!"  Kids Deserve It! Pushing Boundaries and Challenging Conventional Thinking.

Mrs. Hoyt loves reading books to her kindergarten friends.  We are currently enjoying Charlotte's Web by E.B. White.  It is a fun story about a friendship between a pig and a very talented spider.  "I love all of the big words we are learning when we read this story!", said Mrs. Hoyt

First Grade teacher, Mrs. Hayes shared a couple of her favorite books!

First Grade teacher, Mrs. Hayes shared two of her favorite books with friends in room 103.  Have Fun Molly Lou Melon and Ish are both at the top of her list.

Recently Ms. Mills shared Giraffes Can't Dance by Giles Andreae and Mrs. Bourgeois read The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires.

Both books contain the message that we must always try, not matter how challenging things are.
