ROARING TO READ AND WRITE
November 8, 2016
Happy Fall, ya’ll!! The cooler weather has finally arrived and holiday time is coming. Remember to complete some reading at home. We continue to encourage students to meet their goals in Accelerated Reader (AR) and have many books available in the classroom for students to read.

Wow! It’s already December! This year is going by fast, isn’t it? Your students are working hard in class. This week we are reading and writing about that loveable flightless bird---the penguin!
Ask your student about Tacky the Penguin—and don’t be surprised if they ask for a bow tie and tropical print shirt!
We will be writing some stories and facts about penguins in class. Ask your student to share what we have learned.
