Time is Flying!

Its been quite awhile since I have been able to send this out. I am feeling out of touch with many of you and for that, I apologize. We have been in and out of school so much, I am sure you all need an update of the goings on!! We started the third quarter on January 27th. We are continuing our work with historical fiction while spiraling back to author's purpose, fact and opinion, and cause and effect. Writing's focus is on the personal narrative making sure to form strong paragraphs. Social Studies is centered around Jamestown. We have even begun to read the book, Blood on the River. Please ask your child about Samuel from the story!

Valentine's Day Update

With Friday being Valentine's day, we will be doing a few special things.

  1. In the morning, the students will be going to visit their book buddies and sharing Valentine's with them. We will be working on these in class this week, so NO need to buy anything special.
  2. In the afternoon, we will be exchanging Valentines with one another. This is not a must for all students. The only thing I ask is if your child wants to bring in Valentine's, then one must be brought for everyone. We have 21 students in our class. I will send home a class list in the Monday folder.
