Publishing Party!

Hi Families,

It's almost time for our first publishing party! We started the year practicing with narratives, but now we've brought a fiction story through the whole writing process (well, almost).

Our celebration will be Wednesday, December 14 from 8:40 - 9:20 in the classroom and here's what our morning will look like:

  1. Listen to all students share a favorite part of their story
  2. Read your child’s full story with them
  3. Walk around the classroom and read other stories with your child and leave a positive comment
  4. Snack and enjoy each other’s company :)

Here is the link to sign up to bring a breakfast snack to share. Please let me know if you have trouble opening or editing the doc.

Veteran's Day

Each year, I look forward to talking about Veteran's Day with students and celebrating our Veterans. It's a powerful holiday and many students have Veterans in their life, which helps them connect personally.

On KidBlog, they wrote poems this morning celebrating these brave men and women in our country! They blew me away with their compassion and empathy! Here are a few of them:

Fights for our country
Who feels so brave they will risk their on lives for others
Who needs a friend to help guide their way
Who fears letting down their country
Who loves fighting for others
Who thinks of others
Who believes in world peace
- Sisi

Fought in the army
Who feels good about winning
Who needs food and water
Who fears losing someone they love
Who loves family
Who thinks what's coming before them
Who believes in life
- Greer
