Mrs. Hawker's Newsletter

November 15th, 2013

Language Arts

This week we focused on nonfiction. We discussed the common characteristics and features of a nonfiction text and how these characteristics differ from fiction. The features we discussed are label, photograph, caption and maps. We are making a book on these features!


This week we learned about expository texts. We chose an "expert topic". This refers to a topic they already know well and do not need to research. There are many different types of expository writing such as a biography, a report, and a how to. We will work on writing an informational article to inform an audience. They are really excited!


  • WKCE testing next week on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday on reading.
  • School Store will be open on Tuesdays!
