The Curriculum Corner...Wrapping up a Unit of Study
Believe it or not, the first marking period is winding down & we are just about ready to move on to information writing! In her Two Writing Teachers blog entry, Elizabeth Moore (@BethMooreTCRWP) shares some fantastic (and practical) ideas to help us transition through each Unit of Study)...I even decided to share on her comments section! Click on the link below to see everything that she has to say. As always, feel free to chime-in with any thoughts via social media, email or simply leave some comments in the footer of The Buzz!

News & Notes
- We will be continue to provide gifts for our families in need this holiday season. Information will be coming out shortly. If you have families in mind, please let Marian know.
- Dismissal Routines: Beginning Monday we will be sending all 2nd & 3rd graders directly to their busses each afternoon rather than lining them up in the hallway. 1st Grade will continue with the line-up/sign routines. The goal is to ensure that the busses aren't waiting for us in the afternoon. THANK YOU to the Leadership Team for your work on this!
