Hello Families,

As you may have already heard, the LA and SS  wall divider has been opened and our two classes are integrating the Colonial Unit.  Students are working at centers in both rooms that focus on discovering what life was like during this period of time.  This learned information is being expressed in a historical fiction short story.  The students will detail life with descriptive language, vivid details and small moments to help the reader visualize this unique setting. Strong emotions, dialogue and thematic plots, should help the writer review the techniques used to weave a narrative. We have completed the story organizer and most of the summaries in class already.I have assigned the remainder of the summaries for HW.

The students should be done with their colonial novels already. The purpose of reading these books was to help them experience the craft of historical fiction.

The unit will conclude with a grand story sharing day.  If you have a costume available for your child they are welcome to wear it at that presentation. Date - TBD.
