What's Happening In Room 6?
We will also be starting a new project this week. We are going to use a little creativity to write a story about our Pet Reindeer. Your child will brainstorm ideas such as...the reindeer's favorite foods, favorite color, least favorite activities, and how they will take care of their pet reindeer. We will then create our reindeer that will decorate our classroom until our holiday break.
We are also discussing another type of writing - the friendly letter. We read a story called Dear Mr. Blueberry to learn about the format of a letter. We learned the five parts of a letter so far. This week, we will begin writing our very own friendly letters.
I will not be assigning written homework over our holiday break. Please continue to log your child's reading on his/her calendar over our break. Thank you for your support at home!
We are SHARKS!
We also discuss our district's motto - Pennridge T.A.K.E.S. P.R.I.D.E. The month of December was dedicated to Kindness. When your child identified an act of kindness that they demonstrated, they wrote it down on a piece of paper in the shape of a light bulb. I collected all of the light bulbs and strung them around our classroom door because "Our Class Shines When We are Kind". It looks amazing! Once we took a second to think about the little acts of kindness we do each day...we had lots to write about! :)
