Tuesday Takeaways

Gatesville Intermediate

Week of November 15, 2021

November Character Theme: Caring and Giving

Giving is defined as, to share with others without expecting something in return.

Let's focus more on giving this week -- Below is a 'giving sort', read the examples and determine whether or not giving is being shown or NOT shown.

  • Ralph's apple tree was full of apples and more than he could eat. Still, Ralph did not like to share with his neighbors. Giving or NOT giving?
  • Sarah's brother is in the army overseas. Her class voted to send him cards and a care package. Giving or NOT giving?
  • Russ started a dog walking business, so he could donate dog food to the local animal shelter. Giving or NOT giving?

Hear ye, hear ye!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving and Food for Families, our campus librarians are offering the opportunity for students to clear fines for lost or damaged books from 11.8 - 11.17.
