Turner Tribune 9/29/17

Greetings families,

Another successful week of learning is in the books! In social studies this week, students got a chance to closely examine the artifacts made by Mr. Hershiser’s class and make a class presentation of inferences about their culture. In ELA we wrapped up notes on the 6 Traits of Writing and participated in a song lyrics/paraphrasing activity to illuminate the importance of sentence fluency. This assignment was due Wednesday (turned in on Google Classroom). If you have not seen Google Classroom before, please ask your child to show you how it works this weekend. It is a very useful tool where students turn in all digital assignments from both ELA and Social Studies.

Some upcoming after-school clubs:
Cryptology Club Oct/Nov 17, with Ms. Turner
Winter Craft CLUB 2017, with Mrs. Larson
Pokemon Club Nov-Dec 2017, with Mrs. Larson
Star Wars Fan Club 2018, with Mrs. Larson

As we wrap up “Dig” in social studies and transition into our “Bones & Stones” unit in October (on Early Man), we will culminate with a traditional day-long event for the 6th graders: Primitive Day! On October 12th, students will learn how to make fire, throw spears, create cave art, and more. For this day to be a success, we are looking for 2-4 parent volunteers from our homeroom to visit stations with students throughout the day. Please sign-up here if you are available to help; you may sign up for as many time-slots as you are available and would like to help.

Also, a reminder that Salsa day will be taking place during Spanish on Monday. Please contact Mrs. McGeever (jmcgeever@pccharterschool.org) if you would like to help in class (1-1:40).
