Dear Families,

We had a wonderful field trip on Friday, and the students truly enjoyed seeing a story (one that many were familiar with) come to life on stage! This week, we will begin our week with a Monday morning Prayer Service to reflect on our first week of Lent. Please encourage your children to complete our Lenten activities and remember to color one petal each week!

Please remember to check Mrs. William's class page on a weekly basis to stay up-to-date on what's happening in Math, Science, and Religion. You can visit her page by clicking here: Mrs. Williams

Also, please make sure to send a note if there is a change in your child's usual dismissal. Also, students should bring a small, healthy snack and a bottle of water to school. Thank you!

This week, students will begin a new lesson in Journeys. We will be using Lesson 15 "Ecology for Kids" as our mentor text as we focus on the main idea and supporting details in a story. Students are continuing to work on inferrential skills in small group work. This week's reading homework focuses on point of view. 

Students have been doing a lot of research on the topic of zoos in preparation for our opinion writing piece. Students also had a chance to have a class debate on zoos to help them prepare to make a strong claim, and support their claim reasons and evidence. We also worked on counter-arguments to further support their opinion. This week, we are putting all of this information into our writing. Students will begin the pre-writing process to organize their writing. We will also begin drafting with a strong introduction, and discuss ways to write a strong thesis statement.
There is a Spelling Quiz on Friday.

Social Studies:
In Social Studies, students are looking at the French and Indian war from different perspectives (Native American, French, and British). Then, students will learn about the effects of the French and Indian War. We will also begin to understand that the French and Indian War was one of the first causes of the American Revolution.
