A few things to remind you of and one change:
Thursday, October 19th – No School
Friday, October 20th – No School
In Writer’s Workshop, we have been focusing on the question; what counts in grade five writing? With this, we have been working on recounts (writing about a past personal experience). As you may have seen in your child’s agenda, they will be writing an “official” recount on Monday, October 16th. This is an in-class assignment and not something you will see come home.
I will be sending Math homework home, next week, focusing on Estimation.
Picture orders are due on October 18th. There is a spot to check if you would like your child to have re-takes. Re-takes are scheduled for Wednesday, November 1st.
I am requesting all Scholastic Book Orders be in by Monday, October 16th instead of the 20th as previously mentioned.
Also, I want to thank you all so much for the support you provided for your child towards their oral history project. The students are working very hard on their slideshow and the information they have learned through this activity is important. I think the children were nervous to complete the interview at first, but they seem to have really enjoyed it. Thank you!
