Thanks so much for your help!
Green Team Valentine's Container Contest
Green Team is going to have our Valentine’s Day container contest again this year. Students are encouraged to create a container that can hold their Valentine cards/treats. The creativity of the students last year was outstanding and so much fun to see. Students can create something as simple as using a reused Wal-Mart sack to something as elaborate as they would like. We only ask that students use items from home that would have been tossed in the trash. This is a great opportunity for you to talk about recycling in your morning meeting. If students choose to participate they will need to have them ready by February 10th. If students do not want to participate they do not have to. This is completely optional.
We are asking that students vote for their class favorite and the winners of each class needs to be placed in the hall on the lockers. If you have all of the student containers in the hall, please make sure there is a sign of some sort letting us know who the winner is for the class. The Green Team will come around on the 10th afterschool and will pick a winner for each grade level.
All winners will be announced on Thursday (11th) and Green Team/Yearbook will come by each class and will take a picture.

Language Arts and Social Studies
Language Arts: Students will explore literature and generate a list of topics. We will use these to create theme sentences about the author’s message. Students will find text evidence to support the author’s message. In writing, we will continue to develop our writing craft by drafting an expository piece on how some people choose to face situations with courage. This piece is inspired by the documents from our Alamo DBQ study. Students will revise and edit the piece with truisms, quotes from the documents and figurative language.
Website Resources: Fantastic Grammar practice
Social Studies: This week we will reexamine our historical documents from the Battle of the Alamo. Students will create main idea statements for each document. Their main idea statements will then be used to compose a summary of these ancient documents.
