Ross' Writing, Science, & SS
4th Grade - December 14, 2015
The drafts are complete, so our work this week will be on revising their work. Our focus will be on adding transitions and opposing views to add strength to the claim.
When you have a minute, ask your student what their opinion piece is about and challenge her/him to support their claim with reasons, evidence and examples.
THANKS FOR ALL THE MINI SOCIETY SUPPORT!!
Polar Express Day - Thursday, December 17
Bell Prairie's annual Polar Express Day will be this Thursday. On that day, students may wear pajamas. We do ask that they wear tennis shoes (no slippers) and no robes. Appropriate wear for 4th graders would be pj bottoms and a regular t-shirt. Also, blankets and pillows are not needed for this activity.
Bell Prairie's Winter Party will be this Friday, December 18 at 9:30. A big thanks to all of the parents who are helping out by sending in supplies or running the party. An extra shout-out goes to Deb Tucker for stepping in to be our coordinator.
EARLY DISMISSAL, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18
School will dismiss early this Friday. Students will eat an early lunch here and then head home at 12:30 to begin their Winter Break. School resumes on Monday, January 4. Enjoy the extra time with your family and friends. I know I will!
