We are stuck on reading!

And our principal Mrs. Stanley

is stuck to the wall!

Students received one piece of duct tape for each week they turned in a reading log for the month of September.  Kids had a blast taping the principal to the wall to celebrate their hard work with reading.

What is RtI?

The letters stand for Response to Intervention.  However, if you ask your child, they will probably tell you it is one of their favorite things to do at school.  Your child has had the chance to work with different staff members at Lydia Rippey - focusing on their specific learning strengths and needs.

RtI is an intervention method we are implementing for the first time this school year.  It is a time where students receive instruction based on their personal academic needs.  Teachers give all students a pre-test to determine what students already know and what they do not know with a particular skill.  Then, the teachers analyze each student’s assessment to see what their learning needs are and group them with other students who have similar needs.  Student groups and subject areas change approximately every two or three weeks.  RtI is fun, engaging, and most importantly it meets the needs of all learners.  Thank you for making sure your child is at school every day for their RtI time.

You are one smart cookie!

Students who met their reading goal for February had a chance to decorate cookies with Mrs. Stanley.  They also received a free book from PVG.  What a sweet incentive!

Wacky Readers!!!

March 3rd through March 7th was Read Across America Week in celebration of Dr. Seuss’ birthday.  Many classes read Dr. Seuss books during the week and participated in activities based on these fun stories.

On Wednesday, March 5, children listened to the Dr. Seuss book Wacky Wednesday.  In this story a lot of things are out of place, upside down, and just plain wacky. Children were invited to dress wacky on this day to help celebrate Dr. Seuss and his contributions to children’s literature. Some of the great ideas of wacky dressing included wearing your shirt backwards, wearing mismatched socks and/or shoes, crazy hair, etc. 

We had a great time celebrating reading!

Feathers for Reading

We have “taped and feathered” our principal!  Students earned one feather for each reading goal they met in November.  On November 22, students taped their feathers to Mrs. Stanley and turned her into a turkey!
