I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. It is definitely beginning to feel like Fall outside.
Thank you to everyone that sent in items for our solar cookout. We will finally have our cookout on Monday. It will be a little chilly, but luckily sunshine is in the forecast.
In your child's Monday folder, information will be coming home about the solar house project. The house and the write up are due Tuesday, October 23, 2012. One important detail is that the house MUST be made using a shoe box. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Last week, we received letters from our Pennsylvania pen pals. We wrote them back and wrote introductory letters to our Derrick Thomas Academy pen pals.
This week, we will be writing our South Carolina pen pals back and focusing on colorful words and bringing our writing to life with figurative language for our next narrative writing piece. All of the first narrative writing pieces have been posted on the blog. They are the Zooburst vacation stories. Please click on the top left corner to enlarge your child's writing.
Have a fantastic week!
