Greetings to everyone on this blustery fall day. Today we were quite fortunate to get some time in the school vegetable garden. Our class got to harvest some delicious lettuce and some delectable tomatoes to use to make a big salad. Kate, the garden instructor, graciously provided the croutons and some pumpkin bread as a side and we all got to sit down and have a tasty meal together. Luckily the wind had died down a bit at that point in the day and aside from a few stray pieces of lettuce that caught a gust, it was a very pleasant meal.
In Language Arts students got a chance to do a peer review of each other’s memoirs. I’ll be doing a teacher edit and then they will get to work on their final drafts. Tomorrow we will be administering the district writing assessment which will have a memoir prompt. Make sure all the students get a good rest tonight. On Friday we will be administering the district math assessment. We are definitely in crunch time as the first grading period is coming to an end.
Students have been working on Social Studies projects as they research different Native American Tribes. The final projects will be due on Monday and students will get some time tomorrow and on Friday to continue research and start on their project of choice.
