We started two weeks of close reading about pumpkins. We have searching for good information, taking a lot of notes, and even writing a non-fiction chapter book about pumpkins! Yep! You read that right... my first graders are becoming AMAZING authors!!! They have even been searching for pictures in computer lab to use in their books. I cannot wait to see the finished products!
We read some great non-fiction books about pumpkins this week and focused on learning about the life cycle of a pumpkin and what this fruit needs to grow!

I was able to visit with several of you about Remind 101. This is a new text service that I am trying out. If you would like to receive text reminders (spirit days, early outs, special changes, etc) from me you can sign up by texting @a980a to (636)875-7688. It is completely confidential, keeping your phone number private. I tried it out last night and it actually is pretty neat! Text message rates do apply.
Ask your child about… pumpkins, misconceptions, Rocket Math, writing our non-fiction chapter book, the –ack word family, free choice Daily 5, stuffed animal day, and food chains!
