Walker's Weekly

The classroom happenings in Room 105!

A note from Miss Walker

Happy Monday!

It's so hard to believe that it is almost Thanksgiving! This year sure is flying by!

This week, we will continue reading Number the Stars, and working on Argumentative Writing by learning how to make a claim and support it with evidence from the story. Look for mid-term reports to come home today in paper form for any student with a D or an F in a class. Progress reports will be emailed to the parents of all other students.

Let's have a wonderful week!
