From Mrs. Bonds
In the first week of October, we finished our narrative writing unit. Students learned how to write stories about something they do or something that happened to them. We learned how to make our stories "come alive" by making characters move, feel, and talk. We used craft moves to make our stories interesting, like ellipsis, bold words, and writing words BIG or small. Soon your child will be bringing home some of the narrative books they wrote.
Please don't forget about Chesney Night coming up on Friday, October 21st! This is our super fun fall carnival with games, inflatables, Just Dance, face painting, and more. Students will need a wristband to participate in the activities. Wristbands are $10 each and can be purchased at school. If you send in the money, I'll make sure it gets to the right place.
Thank you for your continued support of our class this year. It was been a wonderful ten weeks!
