Fund Raiser Starts Today!!!

Your child will be bringing home a fundraiser packet today.  These are due back to school on September 17th with the order forms and money.  Thank you for supporting our school.

Morning Journal:  If you could visit a national park, what would you do while you were there?

Writing:  We are putting the finishing touches on our imaginative stories.  The students are completing their illustrations and typing their stories on the computer.  We will present these stories to the class tomorrow.

Reading Workshop:  We looked at how readers choose books to read on a daily basis.  We brainstormed many different things including:  looking at pictures, looking at the title, reading the summary on the back, recommendations from friends, subjects we enjoy.  We read our own books quietly at our seats and looked at which types of books we would enjoy.

Science:  We created a KWHL chart about rocks and filled in all that we know about rocks.  We observed three different kinds of rocks and wrote down properties of each.  We also analyzed how the three rocks are similar and different.  The vocabulary your child needs to know is:  properties, physical properties

SS: We said a chant to remember the cardinal directions of north, south, east, and west.  We brainstormed a list of places that we had been in South Carolina.  We looked at the atlas in our social studies books and and different types of landforms that are in SC.  We will continue to look at the landforms of SC for the next couple of weeks.

The students need to read for 15 minutes and complete pg. 146 Set A in their math book.
