Happy Holidays and THANK YOU!
Thank you to our room moms, Khun Apple and Khun Mai for organizing such a wonderful class party. The class loved making snowmen and the snacks were delicious.
Also, Thank you for such a thoughtful present Class! I'm thankful to teach such an energetic and caring group of kids this year.
Writing: Travel Journals
Our Class will be writing persuasive reviews when we return from Winter break. A persuasive review gives readers information about something and then tries to convince them to share a certain viewpoint. Our class will write reviews about the following things after Winter break:
hotels, restaurants, books, movies, video games, iPhone/iPad apps
We know that you will be enjoying some of these things during your holiday. Students do not have to write a review, but we would like them to record their thinking about some of these things. Use a bulleted list to jot down some of your thinking. Ask your parents to take pictures of things you think are important. Please look at the examples before you jot down your notes.
Parents, please take photos and email them to Mr. Hagen or print them and send them to school with your child after the break. These journals came home in your child's backpack on Friday. Don't forget to have your child bring it along to wherever you may go.
1. We will improve our communication with others about the books we read. How can you make a conversation about literature longer and stronger? What can you talk about when you are reading the same series.
2. Series books: For most of our readers, this is the perfect time for reading a series. Series allow students to read more challenging texts because they will be familiar with characters and patterns in the books. Students should read series books in and out of school.
