***  Griffin’s Tale: PTO is supporting our writing curriculum by sponsoring an all school assembly in May. Griffin’s Tale will perform acts using student’s writing.

  • Stories need to be written by students (all grades) but other than that, there are no restrictions.
  • They can be as long, as short, as wordy, as picture-filled, as serious or as casual as the student wants them to be. Griffin's Tale  said they love to adapt stories of every type. 
  • All stories are due in the office on Friday, November 17.

2) Think about edits and revisions to your Autumn Imagery poem and creative narrative story as I will be printing both out for conferences next week.

Most importantly, students should talk to their families about Veteran's Day and family members who have served. Many students shared that their grandparents had served, and I would like them to hear their stories!

Homework for Wednesday, November 8th

*** Reminder - No school on Friday for Veteran's Day Observance

1) Read for at least 20 minutes and log your reading
2) Study for your spelling quiz this THURSDAY (You can use your flashcards, packet, or SpellingCity)
3) Continue to think about your topic for Informational Writing. Most students have selected their topic, and are now thinking about the 3-5 most important sub-topics of their article. After brainstorming, some students may find they need to refine or broaden their topic  - that's ok! It's important that the topic is focused and well thought out, and it's VERY important that it happens now and not halfway through the writing process.

Homework for Tuesday, November 7th

1) Read for at least 20 minutes and log your reading
2) Study for your spelling quiz this THURSDAY (You can use your flashcards, packet, or SpellingCity)
3) Think about your topic for Informational Writing. (In the informational writing unit, students will complete a non-fiction article about a topic of their choosing. It could be a "how-to" or be an informational description of a historical event. We will be working on this for many weeks to come, so it is important that students think deeply about the topic they choose and make sure it is something they are passionate and knowledgeable about. One way to think about it is: What would you teach the class if I let you teach a lesson?
