A break is upon us!
We need all Fall Fun Run permission slips AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
Also, we need permission slips and money for our Mulberry Orchard field trip which is the week after fall break, October 28th!
What's going on in the classroom?
Reading: We are finishing our first reading unit this week, and students will take their test before fall break. So far we have covered theme, characters, settings, plot events, and how to compare and contrast those things in stories.
Science: Students are still working on animal adaptations this week and have been practicing writing their thoughts in complete sentences and defending their thinking.
Writing: Students are still drafting their first personal narrative. They are working hard this week to draft the body of their piece. These pieces will be finished by the end of October.
This is great practice for students who struggled with place value skills during our first unit!
