**Mystery Readers: If you would like to come to our classroom to read a book or an excerpt from a book please let me know. This would have to be done between 8:40-10:50 because this is our Language Arts block. I can give books to those interested or you can bring your own favorite to share. Let me know if you'd like more information!
**Wanted for the our store: Please feel free to empty your junk drawers and clean out small toys! We would gladly take them for our class store!

What Are We Up To In Room 221?
Students reading Charlotte's Web will be finishing their book this week and reviewing the story elements within their book. They will then begin a project to demonstrate what they've learned throughout our novel study.
Students will be focusing on Point of View in a story, along with revisiting the story elements and how they've changed within the story.
This week students will be working on creating strong endings for their stories and editing/revising their writing.
**We will be presenting these during our publishing party, which all parents/guardians are invited to attend. The tentative date for this will be Oct. 12 but could be changed based on when students seem to be finished with their writing. Stay tuned for more details!
Our test will be Friday, October 2nd.
