Great overall website

Writing

We have wrapped up our opinion unit and have started our poetry. The students are enjoying expressing themselves in creative ways. It is a nice break from the more structured informational and opinion writing.

Reading

We have started one last literature circle. Ask your child what book they are reading. The students will breeze through these books and I am looking forward to some great conversations.
