What’s happening this week:

We will begin an ecosystem book. Your child will be given an ecosystem to research. Work will be done on the book during class time. Some research will be here at school, but a lot of it will have to be done at home. They will also be given a rubric of how it will be scored and specific guidelines of how it should look.

During this time, we will not have a reading story since we will be using various reading skills to complete the book. Your child will be given the book Sleepy Hollow Sleepover.   They will read this over a two -week period, and the students will create a book report at the end of this time. They will be given specific directions for the book report.
