Sept. 28- Oct. 2

I sure hope everyone has enjoyed the fall break and are re-energized!

We will be continuing our informational writing assessment. Students have been researching and collecting information about severe weather disasters. They have developed 3 paragraphs to support their topic. Our next step is to develop an introduction and a conclusion  paragraph. They have worked on composing an introduction sentence for each subtopic paragraph. Each subtopic is a "seed" for their "watermelon" weather disaster topic.
Before writing their final presentation , they will revisit their writing goals from our previous assessment.

SLT reminder :
 If your child is running for our class representative position , please remember that starting Monday, Sept. 28th posters may be placed in our classroom.
 Speeches will be presented to our class on Thursday , Oct.1 and Friday, Oct. 2.

Reflections reminder:
If your child is interested in participating in the PTA's Reflection Contest , they can  pick up a packet for further information on the categories, rules and entry forms. Don’t delay-projects are due by October 14th.

Correction !!      Wednesday, September 9th at 7:30 A.M. in room 211 is where the parent information meeting will be held for all those interested in knowing more about qualifying for the ALP program.

New reading homework:
To support your child's reading fluency and comprehension  your child will be bringing home a leveled reading passage today. Their task for tonight is to do a cold read and use " think marks" from close reading book mark. This is the yellow book mark that your child will have.

Wednesday's homework is to reread the passage and answer the questions. They must highlight the text evidence that supports their answer. Written responses must be in complete sentences.

You don't need to worry about explaining this, we have been learning and applying this in class. 

Reading assessment this Friday!!
