Week of October 17 to 21

My (Ms. Sheridan) apologies for not having posted the Interview project on the blog.  If you need a new copy let one of us know.  These interviews are now past due. We are wrapping up the family project this week.

If you have not paid your class fees please do so asap.

There are 2 trips coming up.  October 31 has an $11 fee.  Please return the trip slip with the fee. (Please put the cash in an envelop or baggy with your child’s name on it) The November 2 trip has no fee, but we MUST have the signed permission slip.

Ray School T-shirts are available for $10 from Mrs. Clement.

A “Writing Application” project will last all 5 days of the week Monday: Plan (choose from the 2 topics provided) Tuesday Draft, Wednesday revise (make it better) Thursday edit (check for errors) Friday publish (turn it in to the teacher)

Writing Application: Note parents may “share the pen” if needed as we start the year and turn it over to more independent writing as we progress.

Choice 1: A List
Pretend you own a store that sells things for just one part of the year.  Maybe you sell only summer things or only winter things.  Write a good name for your store.  Then make a list of what you sell.

Choice 2: Forever Weather!
Pretend you live in a place where the season never changes.  The weather is the same every day.  Write a story about this place.  Tell what the weather is like.  Is it always sunny, rainy, or snowy?  Tell about the people’s homes and clothes.
