This week before Thanksgiving Break we are doing Thanksgiving themed reading passages,  poems, and writings as we work on the Learning Objectives listed below.  Some of the activities are fictional and funny and others are historical.  Be looking for some funny writings to come home on Friday. ( No Turkey for Thanksgiving..with an alternate food choice, and   How to Cook aTurkey)

We will have our spelling test on Friday that is  also Fall and Thanksgiving related words.

Reading:3.6.A. Poetry; 3.10. Sensory Language; 3. 12. Cultural context ( making Inferences) ; 3.13. Nonfiction text features; 3.15. Procedural test( read and follow multi-step directions)

Also, students will bring home on Friday the paper where they created their own new brand of candy bar last week after learning about Milton Hershey. There were some really creative new candies created.

Check Roughneck folders for the cursive packets that your child has completed. We will continue working and learning cursive the entire year.

Thanksgiving Break

November 19-25th will be school holidays. We are off the entire week  so our students will  have time to spend with their families. I wish for all a safe, restful, and happy Thanksgiving time with loved ones.
