The students have been working so hard during the first month with many accomplishments. They just finished their first process writing piece, a personal essay on various topics including "brothers can be so annoying", "mothers are so helpful", and "trying new things can be exciting". They also have completed their first math unit on place value, and are just about finished with our second unit on decimals. The students should be proud of all their successes in their classes during the first month.
Students will be starting their research essay this coming week. Some students have started to create a plan for an enrichment project. They are able to choose their topic, conduct research, and create a project of their choosing to demonstrate their learning. I can't wait to see what their creative minds produce!
I hope everyone enjoys the long weekend and gets an opportunity to enjoy some fall activities!
I have been teaching for twelve years, and eleven years in the town of Willington, CT.
