Quaver Visit!

On Friday we had such a special treat with a visit from Quaver! This is a music program that Mr. Abbiati uses in our music classes. Please be sure to ask your child about the song he wrote just for Shapleigh!

Our very own Scott was called up to assist Quaver...Scott played the "air guitar!"
Way to go Scott!

NWEA Testing


We will be taking the NWEA reading and the math assessments this coming Wednesday and Thursday. Please be sure your child gets plenty of rest and eats a good breakfast those mornings. Also, please talk to your child about the importance of trying hard, listening to questions at least twice and taking his/her time.

Read Aloud

Kindergartners are LOVING the Mercy Watson series that I have been reading for read aloud! The books are written by Kate DiCamillo and illustrated by Maine illustrator, Chris Van Dusen. I have been using this series to support our target of Story Elements: Understanding the setting, events and characters of a story. This also aligns with the DRA(Developmental reading assessment) that I will give to each child at the end of the year. We have started to complete a story map where young readers can illustrate and write about these story features. Practicing this at home will also support your child.
