The Walkathon was also so much fun and very successful! Thanks so much for all of your support!
In Reading, we will continue our read aloud book, Capture the Flag, by Kate Messner. I excitedly shared with the class that we will Skype with Kate Messner on November 5th from 1:35-1:50 for free. (I will put both am and pm classes together for this.) She offers a limited number of 15 minute free Skype sessions each fall and we were lucky enough to snag one. We are reading, discussing, and taking notes in several areas including characters, plot, and predictions.
In Reading, we will also work a bit more on character traits. Then we'll take an assessment on Wednesday.
In Word Study we will continue our study of synonyms. We'll complete several activities at school this week, and then take a quiz on Friday.
In writing, we are deciding upon our topics for our personal narratives, reviewing the characteristics of personal narratives, completing our planning sheet, and working on our drafts. I am excited to see what these will look like by the end of the week!
