Our Highlights: What We've Been Rockin' At!

What a busy week! We finished up most of our assessments, dove right into telling time and elapsed time, learned more about biographies, and we had fun with author's purpose and non-fiction text features. We have also began working on writing a really good 11 sentence paragraph, which is a great beginning to a very specific, evidence enhancing, way of learning and breaking down a great paragraph. We will be learning more about it this week, practicing it, and using it to help make a great persuasive paragraph about a book recommendation. Next week we will also be diving into the character traits of the person who we chose to write our biography on. I'm looking forward to another great and busy week ahead!
