Good morning! Hope everyone had a great spring break! This week in 4th grade we are studying the different ways authors organize text or text structure. We have done many class, group and individual activities to practice this higher level skill. In 5th grade we are working on author's purpose. We have learned that authors write to persuade, inform, entertain, express or describe. In both grades we will have a lit circle meeting on Friday. REMINDERS: Graded papers going home today; Family Fun Night is a come and go event Thursday (5:30-7:00); reading log due Friday; NEW INFO: There will be a new reading log sent home starting next week - same minutes but different prompts at the top. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
