Swimmers, be sure to bring your swimming stuff tomorrow for the swimming event!
Today was a very productive day for 3A writers. We had a great workshop feeling, where students were working with their writing partners, finishing the last part of their drafting, using checklist to revise their work, or checking for spelling errors, and punctuation while editing.
To be sure they are almost ready to publish, they are taking their checklist and a persuasive writing rubric home tonight for homework.
On Tuesday we met our reading buddies. We worked together in a writing project, helping them to create an informational piece of “How to Catch a Leprechaun”
If you are not sure of what a Leprechaun is, ask your children. Also ask them about Saint Patricks celebration.
Their final pieces of “How to Catch a Leprechaun” will be soon posted in their personal blogs.
In science students are learning about the Sun. During our investigation, students explored what makes shadows. They’ve learned that shadows are the areas of darkness created when an opaque object blocks light. Students know the the shapes of a shadow change over a day and depends on the position of the Sun in the sky.
