We have a lot planned for the week including our Harvest Party on Thursday. We'll change into our costumes beginning at 2pm, the parade will begin at 2:30pm, and the party will begin at 3pm. Thanks so much to all of the parents who are helping with the party!
In reading this week, we'll continue our read aloud, Capture the Flag, and will finish it this Friday. We'll also start preparing our our Skype session with the author, Kate Messner, which will take place Tuesday, November 5th in the afternoon. Both of the classes will join together for the Skype session. In reading, we will also focus on plot - identifying the rising action, problem, climax, falling action and resolution. We'll also start an in class project on the mystery genre creating movie posters for Capture the Flag.
In Writing Workshop, we will type our Harris Burdick stories and work on the text of our movie posters.
In Word Study, we will begin our unit on compound words. We will aim for an assessment date of November 8th. A word list will come home for this unit.
We have earned the letter ELECTR towards our "Electronics Time". We are earning a letter each time we walk through the halls as a class silently with no reminders or when we receive a compliment from a teacher while walking through the hallways. We're doing a great job!
