Wednesday, September 20th, 2017: Were you away today? We tried expanding and enhancing our writing with similes, metaphors, and examples of personification. We described a stressful situation (students handed this work in). No homework. See you on Tuesday!

Monday, September 18th, 2017: Thank you for your descriptive paragraphs today. WHAT A FABULOUS ASSEMBLY!

Thursday, September 14th, 2017: Remember to bring your descriptive paragraph about a relaxing place on Monday, September 18th, and your plagiarism contract before the last day of September. Fantastic assembly today! See you on Monday.

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017: Were you away today? We discussed plagiarism, and students received a Plagiarism Contract that they will get signed by a parent/guardian by the end of September. There are extras on the shelf here in the classroom. We started thinking about DESCRIPTIVE WRITING, and sketched/added vocabulary of a place that makes us feel relaxed (real or imaginary). For homework, write one descriptive paragraph about your relaxed place. This is due on Monday, September 18th.
