November 3, 2009

As we begin to wind down our mystery unit , we look forward to beginning our Children’s Books workshop.  We completed our Murder Mystery last Friday.  Our students became detectives for the day as they began to investigate the the crime scene.  The students needed to use critical thinking and  problem solving skills to solve the mystery.

This Friday we will travel to Longcoy to meet our Book Buddies.  The students have been assigned a second grade book buddy for whom they will be writing their children’s book.  They  need to bring their favorite children’s book to class by Thursday and they will be taking these books to read to their Book Buddy.  This is a project that is so rewarding and it is important that our students keep on top of this assignment as there are very specific deadlines.  Please encourage your child to stay  on task as we begin this project.

Your child should have brought home a permission slip for the field trip.  Please make sure they return it ASAP.
