This week we focused on JOY in morning meeting. Students reflected on their favorite things to do, activities they would like to try, and the way they feel when they are happy. We took a lot of opportunities to be playful and silly, including our time on Friday when students drew a picture of themselves as an animal.
We went to the library to watch the 3/4 play – Willy Wonka.
We built in more work with commas – specifically looking at and learning about appositives. We finished up our friendly persuasive letter correspondences. We used a graphic organizer to plan out our arguments and supporting facts.
We will be attending “Peter Pan” on Thursday, December 21. We ask families with children attending the performance to please send in $6.50/child to the front desk or to the classroom teacher by December 15. No TPS child will miss the experience, regardless of ability to pay.
