This week stuents will begin writing a 3 paragraph essay about the grandparent they interviewed. We will learn many new writing strategies during this project. Students will learn:
Students will write a rough draft over the next week. I will edit the papers. Then students will type their final draft on google docs.
Each year at the end of our Grandparent Unit we invite all of the grandparents out for a Grandparent's Day celebration. The students will perfom some songs, serve some treats and spend some time with thier grandparents. This year it will be on October 16th at 11:00. Be sure to get this on your parents calendars. They won't want to miss out. More information and invitations from the students are coming soon.
Thank you so much to all of the parents who have been helping in class. This is a very involved class! I came to a realization last week that I have only had one family from this class before. That hasn't happened before. I also realized that for many of you, your second grader is the oldest child in your family. Welcome to having a big kid, not a little kid. They are growing up. Because of this there is some parent help info that I have failed to share, sorry. Here is the first installment of my Parent Help Bootcamp :)
Thanks so much for your willingness to come help in class. It makes our classroom a better place. Coming next time in Parent Help Bootcamp, "How much should I help? What should I have students fix?"
