Thank you to all the families that were able to make it to the writing celebration. Your participation makes the celebration important. You become the students' adoring fans, boosting their confidence and making their writing have value.
The celebration marks the end of the writing unit. As a result, students are taking home all of the narrative writing that they have worked on since the beginning of school in their orange folders. If you would like, go through some of the writing students chose not to showcase. Ask them about the process of writing, and what's up with the green pen?
On Thursday, students went around the Queen Anne neighborhood to pass out invitations to the Halloween parade. Students wrote an invitation and decorated the cover with a Halloween landscape. We then went door-to-door, knocking and ringing door bells.
As neighbors came to the door, students presented the postcard and invited neighbors to come to the parade. Students really stepped up to the responsibility! It was charming to see students interacting and creating relationships with the neighbors around our school. We hope to continue building relationships this year, and discuss themes around our responsibility as members of the QAE community.
We continued to play games to practice mental math strategies and practiced using tools such as using a ten frame.
Students worked on stamina, reading for longer and longer bits of time as we finish up our narrative reading unit.
