Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month
Mexican Independence Day is a two day celebration that starts at 11:00 p.m. on September 15th. The current Mexico President rings the bells at the National Palace in Mexico City, and then reads the "Cry of Independence". There is a grand celebration for Dia de la Independencia on September 16th. This celebration is very similar to 4th of July celebrations in the United States.

Catch Me If You Can
Ms. Taylor's fourth grade class split into teams to analyze their story for the week, Catch Me If You Can by Carol Schaffner. They focused on characters and setting. The setting crew identified all the important features of setting (place, social context, time and mood) and had a discussion to decide what was most important in the story. The character crew then chose their roles and began talking about the important qualities of their characters (personality, physical attributes, beliefs, and identifying hero or villain traits). Once each group discussed all the features of their focus, they wrote them out on posters to present to the other group. They listened to each group present about their focus. Throughout this process, students had to read the story many times to make sure they did not miss any important information. They made sure that the setting was properly analyzed so that the setting crew could begin their art. The character crew read through the story many times to make sure they understood the stage directions and to make sure they could act out their characters with personality.
