What’s happening in 208?

Hello,

I hope you all had a great weekend! Please make sure to hand in your after school activity forms ASAP if your child wants to participate in an after school program. First come first serve.

PICTURE DAY will be this Thursday, October 16th. Please bring in order forms ASAP. Our pictures will be taken from 1:40-1:50 in the afternoon.

Today is writing, we worked on summarizing. We want our kids to be proficient (and feel confident) in taking out the important elements from a piece of text, both fiction and non-fiction to write a summary. Today’s summary lesson only focused on FICTION.  The format/strategy we are using to summarize is:

“SOMEONE, WANTED, BUT, SO, THEN”

We first discussed what is means to summarize. We then worked together on our “someone wanted but so then” strategy to summarize the first 5 chapters of One for the Murphy’s. Below are pictures of the charts we created today to be hung in the classroom.

Thanks and have a great night!
