We are definitely off and running! October 19th is coming up quick (MS story telling night). Your student has written three stories at this point; there will be a total of four for students to choose from on story telling night. Students were asked to go home this past weekend and prepare to tell their most-recent (humorous) story on Monday without reading out of their writing spirals.
Our ancient civilizations unit has begun! Students will be learning about the first civilizations of the fertile crescent through a historically accurate, informational simulation. Success in this simulation will come as a result of team work, and the completion of individual tasks. At school, students will work together in civ. groups, but there is a weekly individual assignment (known as tasks) that is being graded for information and effort. Please ask your student to show you their weekly task assignment.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone at conferences on Tuesday and Wednesday night! This is an important opportunity to get to know each other and make sure we are on the same page. I can’t believe we’re through five weeks already!
