We dove into how-to writing and practiced with first, next, then and last sheets on how to wrap a gift and how to decorate a tree. The students are rock stars at this! We also worked on the understanding of a story's central message. We read Night Tree and the students had to think about the main idea, as well as give key details of the book. They did a great job.
I absolutely love watching the kids interest in non-fiction. They pieces they have put together and the recent books we have been working on are so impressive. Animals are a big hit. I can't wait for you to read what your child has learned and wrote about. We learned about non-fiction text features and the importance of each. Students used many of the features in their books- title, TOC, heading, photos, labels.
Monday, December 19 is the school ugly sweater day! I'll be participating of course :)
Friendly reminder that the class Christmas party is Wednesday, December 21 from 11:45-12:30. It is a half day, so your child is welcome to leave with you after the party if you come. If you could, please bring a wrapped book for the book exchange we are doing. Thank you!
