9-11 Anniversary

Thank you to the men and women that serve in our military and take care of us every day as police officers, firefighters, and paramedics.  Please take a moment to think of those that lost their lives 11 years ago in the World Trade Center and Pentagon.

Morning Journal:  We are the Patriots!  What are the characteristics you think we should show every day as Patriots?

Writing Workshop:  We are creating our own fairy tales.  I read a version of Beauty and the Beast to the students and we discussed the different parts of a fairy tale.  The students are working on their own fairy tales in small groups.

Reading Workshop:  The students began working on their own with reading, word work, and writing their weekly letters to me.  I will continue to add on activities for them to complete during this time.

Math Workshop:  We collected data from around the school into a tally mark graph and then created a bar graph and pictograph using this data.  We will continue to review graphs and will have a test on Friday.

SS:  The students participated in a council meeting.  They discovered that a chief does not have the final say, but instead the council helps him to make the decisions and then the women of the council make a final decision on whether or not to have war or peace.  They had to decide whether or not to go to war over a piece of very fertile land.  They came to a decision that they would form one big tribe and share the fertile land.

LATE START DAY TOMORROW!!!  School begins at 9:40!!
