Hello Families,

This week....

Literacy: Book team groups will complete their books . Students will practice writing book summaries. Book teams will plan and perform skits from their favorite scenes to share in class the week of the 17th.

In writing students are finishing their, "Special Person" writing planner and will begin drafting. This persuasive piece will utilize the Lucy Calkins format for this style of writing. Students have shown great enthusiasm about this project!

Our read aloud, Tuesdays at the Castle will wrap up this week.
