Kindergarten Meet Up This Friday! #resvt

Incoming 2017-2018 Kindergarten Families Save the Date!
RES Kindergarten Summer Meet Ups!!

What: RES Kindergarten Meet Up
Where: The RES playground
When: Friday, August 11th
Time: 10-11 am

The Plan: This is an opportunity for families and kindergarten students to meet in a casual and informal setting before the school year begins. Several current RES parents will be on hand to welcome you and answer any questions you have. Students will play on the play structure (Which will be a fun opportunity to be at school before school begins) and families will have a chance to visit and chat.
Some Tips: It is great to know who your student's teacher will be--this allows kids to meet other kids from their classes and have some familiar faces as they begin the school year. The play structure is in the sun, so sunblock and water bottles are recommended. The school will not be open, so use the bathroom before you visit! Siblings are welcome.
Please Note: This is an event for families, and all kids should be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times. In the case of rain, the event will be cancelled (please check the school website if there is a question).
We hope to see you there!

Writing Concrete Poems in Library Class! @resvt #vsla #vted




 One-word concrete poem: "Flying"
Can you see the "L" flying?


In collaboration with their classroom unit on poetry, RES second graders have been learning about and writing concrete poems in their library classes. Concrete poems, also known as shape poems, are poems where the arrangement of words or letters on the page add to the meaning of the poem.




Students shared several books of concrete poetry, then they wrote their own. We are so impressed with their creativity!
