This week we'll continue writing personal narratives.  The children will be using the processes of prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing.  



States and Capitals

The children will be given the challenge of learning all 50 states and their capitals.  The children that learn them will get to attend a special party at the end of the year and be recognized at the end-of-the-year awards assembly.  The children are expected to know the 50 states, their capitals, and identify the location of all 50 states on a map.  Children can learn their states and capitals in many different ways:  flashcards, states and capital songs on YouTube, computer games, etc.  Four students have passed their states and capitals tests.  Go room 20!  We currently have four students that know their states and capitals.

This week we're continuing to read Tuck Everlasting.  We won't be reading a story in our anthologies this week, but we'll be applying the skills we've learned in unit one and two to our novel reading.




The more that you read, the more things you will know.  The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go. –Dr.Seuss

Thank you for attending parent conferences.  It's a pleasure sitting down with parents and guardians to learn more about each child.  It's one of my favorite weeks of the school year.
