What's Happening?!

English: We are taking a break from Shurley to focus on singular and plural possessives (3.W.6.2b), DOL quiz Friday

Writer's Workshop: For the month of April, we will be working on a narrative writing project. Write Your Story on My Heart focuses on helping kids find God in their daily lives. We will be writing a total 5 narratives over the course of the next month - six weeks. Concepts covered throughout the project include: sensory details, transition words/phrases, dialogue, and reviewing narrative writing structure. All of the narratives will have an visual component as well (photos, illustrations, etc.), and the final project will be bound in a book for the kids to keep as a reminder of the story God is writing on their hearts! We will end the year with poetry during the month of May.
