Writing Celebration

On Friday before Fall Break, we celebrated the end of our Pattern Book Writing Genre Study by inviting Ms. Mary Beth's crew over to listen to our books. We had visited their room to hear their stories on Thursday. We all enjoyed having an attentive audience for our books. While we each wrote several pattern books, we shared the ones we wrote that used When I Was Young in the Mountains by Cynthia Rylant as our mentor text.

In this book, Cynthia Rylant repeats the phrase "when I was young in the mountains" over and over and and tells different things she did when she was young in the mountains. We used that general idea and wrote books called, "When I Went to Camp Elim" or "When I Went to Renaissance". You will be able to see the books we created when you come to Student-Led conferences in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, enjoy a few pictures of us sharing our books with Ms. Mary Beth's crew.

Our next writing genre study will be on Question and Answer books. We will use the topics that we selected earlier as things we were passionate or experts about as the topics for our books. We should all love that!

Reading ~ Read a good book or two.
Math ~ Home Link 3.3 Number Line Hops
Remember to return library books.

Fall Climbing
 Our school will climb the first three weeks in November. Our crew will climb the week of November 18th. There will be belay trainings on October 23rd and 30th. Everyone who intends to belay must come to a training, either to be trained or to be refreshed. If you are unable to make the trainings you must arrange a time to get trained/refreshed with Mr. Doug. We need your help. The more people we have to belay, the more climbing time each child will get. Thanks.
