A Very Busy Week!

We had another very busy week full of learning and a little fun!  This week was the book fair.  Our class volunteered to help out with the younger classes. (Third graders are finally the "big kids" and get to help others!)  We made several trips to the library to help Pre-K, Kinder, and 1st grade write down their book choices.  I was so proud of your kids!  They were so patient and helpful!

This week we also used our ActivExpressions to vote on answers and text in our own words and answers during the lesson.  This is super fun!  Ask your child all about it!

In reading we were learning about sequence and summary. Our strategy for summary questions is to take notes and find an answer choice that has B, M, E!

In writing we are working on finalizing the body of our essays and we learned how to write a great introduction.  Next week we will learn how to add the conclusion and begin fixing it up for a final draft!

It was a busy week, but it was full of learning.  Your kids are working SO HARD!
