This Week's Learning...
Daily Jefferson Union
Reader's & Writer's Workshop
Students have been analyzing historical fiction letters written between Abraham Lincoln and Lettie, a slave girl. Their understanding of the Civil War and slavery has grown immensely.
On Friday we finished publishing our Argumentative Emails trying to persuade our reader that either the Civil War or the Revolutionary War was the greatest event in American history.
**Ask your student...What are the positive outcomes of your topic?

The map tests are officially completed! Thank you for helping your child prepare for these tests to better help their understanding of geography. These tests will be completed again in quarter 4.
