Snap Shot

As you know we have been working in the reader titled “Snap Shots”. The kids and I will be doing a writing assignment in class that we will compile to make a class book. This book will be sent home with a student one night a week as a reading activity. We need each child to bring in a snapshot of themselves traveling to a place that is special to them. This can be any location; vacation, to a family member’s house, camp, any place that is special to your child. This does not have to be a recent snap shot, but it should be current enough to where your child has memories that they can share with the class and write about with good detail.  If you have any questions, please let me know!

 Thank you for your help!!


Welcome to my classroom! My name is Miss Rachel Elder and I am looking forward to spending a fantastic year with you!  I received my degree in Elementary Education from Gardner-Webb University, and completed my masters of elementary education through Appalachian State University. I view each year as an opportunity to inspire students to find their passion and help them feel successful.  I love to see the individuality of each child and believe that this individualism should be celebrated.  I appreciate the opportunity to partner with you in your child’s education. Let’s make this year the best it can be!
