Almost half through 3rd quarter! How is that possible? Progress reports are All is well letters will be coming home on Friday with your child.

In reading, we are reading the novel Red Kayak. The students are looovviinnggg it! They get mad with me every time I have to stop reading it. They are really starting to see the connection to our theme of: At a Crossroads: Choices, Challenges & Consequences. We will be doing a Socratic Seminar with the book in the near future. I am going to ask for the help of current Project Arrow students for this activity since they have participated in these before.

Students tested on their mid-module test this week and will be continuing to move through the module. Students will be working on multiplying fractions of fractions.

In writing, students are completing their Revolutionary War Hero projects and will begin designing a comic strip depicting an event from the war or their hero. They are really doing a tremendous job on their projects. So excited for them to share them.

There will not be any spelling for the next few weeks due to days off, and being way ahead of where we need to be :) .

In social studies, students are reading about the many battles of the American Revolutionary War. We are busy taking notes and discussing all these important events in our history. We will be finishing up this week. Their notes, packet and extra credit will be due on Monday, February 17.

Also, parents, don't forget that their Revolutionary war dolls are due THIS FRIDAY.
