The Juliano Journal
Week of December 7-11
Happy Friday! We have had a very emotional week. On Wednesday, our class had to say goodbye to Miss Stenzel. She was a wonderful addition to our classroom and we will all miss her very much. She loved the basket of gifts that the class presented to her. I am very touched by the generosity of our families. Thank you!
First trimester progress reports are now available to view online at ParentVUE. Please use the following link if you have questions about the descriptors on your child's report.
I can't believe there is just one more week until Winter Break. This year is just flying by! I am looking forward to seeing the students really get into the holiday spirit next week. :) Have a great weekend!
We also discussed opinion writing this week. Students learned that an opinion piece needs to include their opinion on a topic and reasons to support their opinion. Students practiced writing an opinion piece by giving reasons why or why not children should be able to throw snowballs during recess at school. Some of them were very convincing!
Our trip to City Hall last Friday was amazing! Hopefully your child shared his/her insights with you. I am certain that each student gained a greater understanding of what happens at City Hall. This week we read and discussed chapter 13. In this chapter, we discussed the causes and effects of different environmental problems in our world.
