Tomorrow is our feast! I thank you to all who have volunteered to provide grapes and/or berries. Also to those who can provide wild game meat for our feast. We are finishing up our Pilgrim Unit this week. The kids have learned that life as a Pilgrim was not easy at all. The have had to create a government, search for food, build houses, and soon will have to make peace with the Indians so they stop stealing their tools. Ask the kids how many tools they have lost.
Tomorrow's feast will be held at the Torstensen Center 13735 Cook Road Pecatonica, IL.
Feel free to dress up as an Indian if you want to! Don't forget to bring a mug, plate, and spoon too.
This week's Happenings:
Math: we took the mid-module test today. We move into the 2nd half of area on Wednesday.
Reading: We began by learning about nonfiction text features and text structures. This week we will be talking about the 3 big questions to ask ourselves while reading nonfiction text. These questions are to help the students engage the text easier. Question #1 is "What surprised you as you read?"
Writing: This week we will finish up our Pilgrim Unit. We will then move into a research project about Indians.
Fundations: We are finishing up week 2 of our Unit 4. Our test will be Wednesday or Friday.
Language: we are working on using conjunctions during our writing.
Have a great night.
