Tuesday - Dear Mrs. LaRue writing is due tomorrow. Today we had our character assembly. The character trait for March is Honesty. We have moved on from Synthesizing to Analyzing Texts. We will focus on the characteristics of different types of writing, such as what makes a narrative a narrative, what makes a report a report, etc. Here is a great description of what makes a Cinderella a narrative. Elements of a story Here is a game to help organize sentences into paragraphs. Our students probably don't have the background knowledge for the Cricket game, but try out the one about the Accident. The paragraph game. Today, we worked on creating nets to form 3-D shapes in math. Please see this past Friday's post for websites for practice. Have a good night. Tomorrow is St. David's Day, or the 1st of March. Lion or lamb?
