I handed out Scholastic book orders to my homeroom and language arts class. Parents may place an order from the book order or online. Just use the classroom code under the "Class Information-Language Arts-Scholastic" tab. September book orders are due by Friday, September 26!
This week we are working on our second spelling list. We are learning words that have the long e sound and also looking at patterns of how long e is spelled. Spelling homework is due on Thursday and the test is Friday.
We are finishing up our persuasive letters to our parents and letters will be sent home with students on Friday. This is a fun activity that required students to list opinions with reasons and facts to persuade their parents into letting them take the guinea pigs home over a weekend. ***This is just for FUN! Students have been instructed not to whine or pout if a parent is not in favor of bringing home the piggies :)***
We are also beginning Charlotte's Web this week as we take a closer look at the characteristics of fiction. Students will also be assigned an at-home book project over a realistic fiction book as well. This project will be due on October 2.
Please keep in mind:
- No school Friday, September 19th
- School pictures Thursday, Sept.25th
Have a great week!
