Harlem Ambassadors Assembly

Two of the members of the Harlem Ambassadors Joined us on Thursday, October 8th for an hour of school. They talked to us about experiences they had during school.


Mike told a story about his education with the moral "Don't be a class clown."


Alex talked about not letting bullies get to you. His moral was "Mental Toughness."


We had fun dancing, singing, listening to stories, playing games, and watching some three-point shots!

Literacy

In reading this week, we worked a lot on citing evidence when writing a short answer to a question. We followed the process of creating a topic sentence, citing and explaining our thoughts, and writing a closing sentence. Through this process, I have seen each student have much more complete answers that display their conceptual understanding of the reading.


One way we learned how to cite evidence in a text is through word-for-word quotes.


**Ask your child... What is a word-for-word quote and how do we use it to back up our thinking?
