Let's all just agree we are done with snow and cold. No more snow days, late openings or early release days! As of now, the 100th day of school will be Wednesday, February 13. I sent home a copy of the 100th day project as well as the valentine list, and it is also on our Homework tab.
Earlier this week we read Love is My Favorite Thing, by Emma Chichester Clark. This story is told by a dog named Prune who has a little problem with self-control. He forgets and doesn't listen sometimes. Ask me to tell you three things Prune did that got him a time-out. Prune worries his family and his friends next door will no longer love him.
We did some writing today about what love is to us. We worked carefully, trying to think before we wrote down letters or words so we don't have as many cross-outs. We also thought about the presentation of our piece. We know we were writing to tell our audience what love is to us, so our audience needed to be able to read what we wrote. Ask me to tell you what writers do so their audience can read what they write.
Hopefully tomorrow will be our last cold morning, and we can get back to as normal a schedule and weather as possible!
It was so great seeing the kids come in this morning and be so happy to see their friends.
Have a nice evening!
