McDaniel Memo

Friday the 12th

Winter Party

Please remember to send in $2.00 for our Winter Party pizza lunch. If students don't like pizza they are welcome to bring their own lunch. We will eat in our classroom and not in the cafeteria.

Also don't forget your specialty book. This is due no later than Thursday!!



This week in reading we worked on sequence in a story. We talked about temporal words such as; first, next, then, last, and finally as clues for the next event to happen.


We are working on finding adverbs to our sentences.


We have finished our second writing unit and will have some time to "free write" until after break. In January students will begin their nonfiction specialty book that we will get published.

Word Their Way

Our weekly word test will occur again next Thursday due to our winter party.


We will be doing some fun holiday themed stations next week. We will begin chapter 6 after winter break. I will have the chapter 5 test graded and returned on Monday.


We will be working in our science book and learning about simple machines.
