Please send in any unwanted empty shoe boxes. We would like to use them for our November Enrichment Day decorations.

We focus on making connections with our reading. As readers we connect to the text and hold on to deep connections versus shallow ones. A deeper connection will help with meaning.
Students will be expected to have at least one library book within their colored dot.
This week we look at fact versus opinion. We recognize a fact as something that can be proven and an opinion as someone's belief or feeling.
As writers, we prepare our stories for future publication. We look at our work through different lenses and meet with others for revision and support.
We will continue to write using complete sentences. We'll focus on the difference between a statement and a question. They should apply knowledge to their own writing as well as others.
This week we focus on contractions. Although students are expected to master these words, applying the phonics rule will aid in their writing and reading.
