Miss Anderson's Language Arts Class
This week, Language Arts classes focused on Point of View, specifically 1st and 3rd person. We shared our opinions about success in our writing assignments this week, which helped us practice the BMME writing plan style. We will be enjoying a Cookies and Bookies event in Language Arts classes on December 18th, which will allow students to share reviews of the best books they’ve read! Please look for a sign up genius if you are interested in making some cookies for this event! Happy December!

Take Home Batman the Hedgehog for the Weekend
Batman is looking to go on vacation with your child! I have some very interested children who would love to take him home.
If you do take him home, I ask that he not be left with other large pets or small children. A shelf is fine where he is out of harms way. He eats cat food and needs to have his bedding cleaned out daily. Your child would receive a Mini Batman Training Course before they take him home. He is easy to take care of. He will have so much fun in your home! Sign up today!
