Aaqil and Ronen are in charge of dictating and typing today's blog post for G2.3.
In the first picture, people are doing their word sorts.
In the second and third pictures someone is retelling a book without using the words, just the pictures.
In the fourth picture, we took a class picture before we did our Fun Run. We are wearing our house colours and and if you don't know what is a Fun Run, you just run around the field as many times as you can and the grade 5's will count how many times you run around and they put a tally mark on your card. 2.3 had a great time." -
We have a new thing called Daily 5 we didn't do that in any other grade.
Stay tuned for Week 4 in 2.3!

Today was a great day in 2.3!
A special thank you to my new group of students for making the day enjoyable. Students spent some time "Finding Someone Who...", making the 4 Be's by explaining how to BE safe/honest/responsible & respectful, and creating unique fish to show their own uniqueness after reading the story Only One You.
Welcome to Class 2.3!
My name is Tammy Musiowsky-Borneman and I'm very excited to join the ISS team this year!
A little about me: I'm originally from Canada, but have been teaching and living in New York City for the past nine years. I love to read, travel, and learn about different ways of life and culture!
On our class blog, you will see what we are learning about through pictures, video and writing pieces! You can also find our class schedule, homework, additional resources, and other useful information.
Please feel free to reach out through blog comments on this site or reach me at my email below.
I look forward to our partnership this year!
Students of G2.3, Ms. Musiowsky & Ms. Nisa
