What Are We Working On This Week?

Character Education: The month of October is Respect


Reader's Workshop: Determining main idea


Spelling/Word Study: We will be working on list #7. Students will have a highlighted list in their 3-ring binder that will come home on Monday. The test will be on Friday. Students should be studying every night at home.


Writer's Workshop: Working on narrative writing unit. Each student will write about 5 life events. Each event will be about a paragraph long. It should be things that your child can remember and give details about. **Students should try to find pennies with the dates of the years that their events occurred. We won't need them until the end of the project, but everyone should start looking now.
