Odds and Ends:
Thank you to all of the children for their Teacher Appreciation Gifts. It has been a true joy and blessing to teach your children this year.
Language Arts Confessions:
We will be having Vocabulary units these last two weeks of school even though they are not true full weeks.
We will be completing our novel Walk Two Moons this week. Children will continue to work on various Literature skills such as figurative language, character traits, point of view, theme, making inferences, and much more. We continue to log signposts. These will help them to figure out the parts of the novel to close read and then understand the importance of that through our anchor questions. Feel free to check out what we will be working on.
Students completed their expository essays on someone in their lives that is in inspiration to them. Check them out. They are beautiful tributes to important people in their lives. I feel honored and blessed that a couple of children wrote about me. It is wonderful to hear how you have changed a life. =)
We have concluded our unit on adverbs and will finish the year with prepositions and conjunctions. Hopefully, we will all understand that you can't begin a sentence with AND or BUT. ;)
Social Studies Confessions:
We continue to focus on the Colonization of America. The children have seen a glimpse at the early people of this country begin to self-govern.
Projects have begun, and I am blown away at the creativeness and effort the children have put forth. Your children are amazing!
