Beginning of 2nd Trimester

Hello! Welcome to 2nd trimester...I am pleased with how the year began. We will be working on our study of Ancient Egypt in social studies, tying in with a novel in Language Arts. As we read the Egyptian historical fiction novel, we will discuss elements of a story and how to evaluate better what we read. In Language Arts, we are continuing to work on a Personal Narrative. This is due Wed., Nov. 21st. In a couple of weeks, we will resume our normal Reader's Response letters on students' independent reading books. This is a weekly assignment, which demonstrates a student's comprehension of their reading, along with giving them regular writing practice. I am excited to continue our learning journey!
