Mr. Bozeday's Class: Week of 10/5 - 10/9
Welcome to the Newsletter!
Class Dojo is great because, first, many students used it last year and really enjoyed the experience. And, second, the program offers frequent communication home about your child's behavior while they are at school. There is a Class Dojo sheet coming home today (Thursday the 8th) that you can look over. You can access our class by typing in the parent account code to the Class Dojo website. The other half of the sheet gets signed and brought back to school as a means of indication to me that you have seen the sheet and have the log in information for your own records. So take a look, sign in, and let the Dojo experience begin!
Sign up by clicking here, and / or downloading the Class Dojo app on your phone!
Reading - Spotlight on Nellie Bly

Social Studies - What is a Cooper?
And why were barrels so important to colonists in the 1600's?
These excellent (and seemingly random) questions go together, and both revolve around what life was like for early English colonists. Settling in the area that is now Massachusetts, Puritans sought a life in what was called the "New World" where they could practice their religion and live their lives how they wanted.
Language Arts - Beware!! Of Haunted Metaphors
Check out the sentence below:
Milla scooped out pumpkin seeds.
It looks simple, I know. But hidden within that sentence is a proper noun, action verb, and direct object. Can your student identify those from that sentence? Also: can your student classify the noun "seeds" in all three ways?????
