Classroom Party: Friday, December 18th
White Elephant Gift Exchange: Friday, December 18th
We will be having a white elephant gift exchange. Needed is one wrapped, but unlabeled gift. The easiest gift choice is something from home that your child no longer plays with, but feels any third grader would still enjoy. Unwanted toys, puzzles, and games in good condition are often the easiest choices. Other popular gifts include ornaments, and markers. It’s O.K. to bring something new, but it is not necessary. Every child will participate whether they bring a gift or not, but the more gifts brought, the more fun!
Part of the writing experience is learning how to use a writer's notebook to list ideas, take notes, draft, and practice revising. Later, each writer will transfer his draft on to paper made especially for this genre. It will be a lot of fun!!
