This week students practiced their inference skills by reconstructing found artifacts in social studies. With next week’s field trip, we will be culminating our first unit of the year and then move into Bones & Stones (our study of early humans). Be on the lookout next week for information regarding a parent volunteer opportunity later in October – helping with the 6th grade’s annual Primitive Day!
In ELA, students practiced building characterization skills in writing, through a “Voice” prompt-walk and by recognizing examples in our read aloud book, Because of Mr. Terupt (which we finished this week – ask your child what they thought of the book!). They also dove into their literature circle books and had their first meeting of the year. Next week we will be utilizing the novels, in correlation with character traits brainstormed by students, to start character development for everyone’s personal narrative.
Lastly, my homeroom got to enjoy another visit with our 2nd grade buddies in Ms. Smetter’s class. This week we completed some Random Acts of Kindness with appreciation cards. Click here for photos.
