With Halloween this week and me being out at least one day per week the last three weeks, we are feeling the craziness in the classroom! We are going to get back on track for a focused work environment and respect conversations next week. If you can help me with this by talking to your child about the Montessori Peace Values, I would appreciate it. They should be able to talk you through these 6 values on their own.
We have been diving into more writing projects and will continue to do so as we navigate the month of November. This week we learned about comparison writing. Soon we will be learning about persuasive and opinion writing. With these lessons the kids are learning about brainstorming, the editing process, and more! First graders are expected to write one quality paragraphy, second graders write two, and third graders write three. If they want to write more than that they are welcome to; these are the minimum requirements. This allows me to check their organization, voice, ideas, sentence structure, spelling and more!
On November 9th we are headed to the Franz Bakery. We are still in need of drivers to make this happen. If you have the appropriate amount of insurance and can drive, please turn in your paperwork to the front office by next week.
Enjoy your time with your family this weekend!
