Week of Oct 11
Can you believe that our first nine weeks have passed? Where has the time gone?
Friday our friends enjoyed a Writer's Celebration to close our first personal narrative. This week we will move into our second narrative, and, having already experienced the expectations for our first, we will refine our writing to develop a meaningful story. Thank you to those who donated to our celebration!
In Reading, our students will investigate traditional literature including fables, folktales, fairytales, and legends. We will compare these to the realistic fiction we have read in the first nine weeks. Traditional literature allows us the share campfire stories as we move closer to Halloween, delving into fun folklore that has been passed down over the generations.
Social Studies will have us learning about landforms and their characteristics. We will also dig deeper into our cursive practice this week.
Looking forward to a great week!
We are running low on classroom snacks. Thank you to those who have donated to keep our third-grade tummies happy!
Mrs. Karsterer and I are beginning our Fall conferences. Be on the lookout for a Signup Genius in your email. We are sending these out a few at a time. Thank you to those parents who came to speak with us on Friday!
