Haiti Passion Project
I am Lania from Mrs. Wallace's class.
Did you know it is almost one month until spring vacation? My family and I are doing something extra special. We are traveling to the country of Haiti, where I was born. Haiti is very beautiful, yet a poor country. The children need our help. They told my mom they really need backpacks and peanut butter. Can you help by donating a new or gently used backpack and a fresh jar of peanut butter? We will be collecting these items until the 22nd in a box by the front office.
Thank you TCE cardinals and together we will bless Haiti!

We are Learning
Last week in reading, we've been focusing on the characters we read about in a book series. We have noticed that the character in one book stays the same in other books in the same series such as Junie B. Jones or Jack and Annie in the Magic Tree House book series. We will continue this discussion next week and dig deeper!.
This week we will continue to finish up our FINAL drafts of our YOUNG AUTHOR BOOKS! We are almost finished and ready for them to be displayed at the Pancake Dinner! The kids are SO excited to share them with everyone!
During our mini-lessons we have started to focus on Opinion Writing!!! We will be reading "I wanna and Iguana" and "I wanna a new Room" along with many of the Pigeon books!!! Once our YA books are completely finished we will begin to write our own opinion books!
Repeated Sort: Students will sort their words. Then check their words using the answer key. Then sort their words again!
Draw and Label: Students choose 10 of their words. Then they will draw a picture of each world and label it.
Blind Sort: Using given guide words, or headers, students spell or write in words in the correct category as a partner calls each word aloud without showing it.
Writing Sort: Students write their words under the correct category.
Speed Sort: Students sort words quickly under the correct categories (use a timer to see how fast they can do it!) Students love to beat records and to set goals for themselves.
Word Hunt: Students hunt through their own reading and writing for words that are additional examples of the sound, pattern, or meaning unit they study!
Buddy Sort: Using the given headers, students sort their words with a partner, then discuss. They will then check their work with their answer key.
