11.25.18 Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. I also hope your child shared with you their essay about Sarah Hale. Our class did a lot of research and worked in teams to put those essays together.
Thank you to those who have already signed up for our theme basket. If you did not get the sign-up genius email let me know and I can ask Christel to resend the invitation. You are all so creative!
We will be getting ready for our Unit 3 math assessment this week. Please look for the review sheet to come home on Wednesday. Please take some time to look over it with your child on Wednesday or Thursday afternoon and encourage him/her to ask me any questions that come up. We will be doing the assessment next Tuesday (12/4). Your child will be writing ways to help prepare for the assessment in his/her assignment book. Your support in this week’s math homework will certainly help your child to build some good study habits.
Over the next three weeks we will be researching New Hampshire animals. We will use many of the skills we learned when we researched Sarah Hale. We will write an informational essay. Your child will be choosing his/her animal on Friday. He/she is certainly welcome to do some research at home or at the town library, although we will be doing most of the writing in class.
