What do you know about Cynthia Rylant?

This morning we began our first author study. Mrs. Rose, our new media specialist, will be conducting lessons all week, with our class, as we study Cynthia Rylant. Ask your child what he/she learned today...ask what they found out about West Virginia and animals.

In math, we reviewed four digit place value and solved two and three digit subtraction problems, with and without regrouping. Students in my math class received a place value worksheet for homework.

This afternoon, following art, lunch and recess, we will begin talking about creating sensory images in writing. Sensory images would include descriptive words that "paint pictures inside the reader's minds" regarding what can be heard, seen, touched, smelled and tasted.

We will also work in small groups to sort social studies words as an introduction to our Economics unit.

Remember that Back to School Night is TOMORROW night and begins at 7 pm...there is babysitting available, for a nominal fee, for school aged children.

Also, if you purchased Spirit Wear, through the PTA, please LABEL it with your child's all looks the same! :-)
