Students will also be receiving their October monthly book project this Thursday. This month's genre is Mystery. We will be looking at how mysteries are written and will be reading a mystery book to compile a list of suspects and clues for our project.
We will continue with spelling this week, but I have added a "Word of the Week" to the list. This week's word is: colossal. The students will need to spell the word, write it's part of speech and definition. They will also be asked to either give a synonym or antonym of the word OR use it in a sentence that gives enough context clues to help the reader figure out the word's meaning.
In science we have finished our Scientific Inquiry strand and will be learning about nonfiction text features. Students will be learning about text features and how they help us to understand nonfiction. We will create a poster that gives examples and definitions of the terms.
A few things to keep in mind:
- Parent/teacher conferences are Tuesday, October 28th and Thursday, October 29th from 3:30-7:30. Please call the middle school office to schedule.
- October mystery book projects are due Thursday, November 6th
Have an excellent week!
