October is here and we are in the rhythm of the school year. We have finished our small moment publishing, and have started our Pioneers unit in earnest. Each student has taken on a pioneer persona, and has been writing diary entries from the perspective of this persona. Wagon trains have also begun their journey to Oregon in search of a better life. Ask you student about their pioneer experience. We have also started a read aloud linked to our unit. Mr. Tucket, by Gary Paulsen, is the story of a pioneer boy who gets separated from his wagon train and befriends a mountain man, Mr. Grimes.
Conference sign up folders are out! Sign up for your student's conference on October 20th or 21st. Conference folders are on the tables outside the main office.
