Description

Join Mrs. Flajser for a picture book read aloud followed by a discussion based on the book's themes. Some of the ideas we will talk about include growth mindset, mindfulness, self-confidence, and perspectives. Then, we will do a group activity based on the book.

How can we do Reader's Theater using a computer? Well, we will read some plays, practice our lines, and then read them during a Schoology Breakout Session. After that, we will work together to create an iMovie of our Virtual Performance.

Calling all game lovers! Join us online to play Pictionary, Heads Up, Kahoot trivia, and other online versions of your favorite games.

Each week we will dive into the English language through games, books, and word talks!

We will look at pictures of cute animals, pick our favorites, read stories, draw on the whiteboard, and talk.

Bring a lunch or snack and hang out with friends and Miss Epstein. We will share with one another and play games.

Do you love brain teasers? How about challenging a friend with a fun riddle or joke? Well, this is the club for you. Join Ms. Adetoro with other TJ tigers to share your best riddles and jokes during your afternoon snack/lunch.
