Happy LAST day of September, everyone!!!  Can you believe tomorrow is October first??  Wowza, it's almost Halloween!  Ahhh!! 

This morning, students worked on a Science assessment over their unit of study for Ms. Frederick.  The concept of focus was Unity and Diversity (structure and function, life cycles, etc.).

a.m. reward:
I  gave an impromptu award to those students that have had their planners signed every night this week as that is an expectation.  These students from our class and Ms. Frederick's class were allowed to have some extra recess time while the rest of the class had to stay in the room and read.

Independently, students also worked on a project entitled, "A Walk Through...." where they literally gave a walk through their book. The students traced their own feet and used them as footprints. On each footprint, an event of the story was written to help sequence the events and then details to support the events as we are working on learning not only WHAT events happen, but WHY events happen.  Finally, the students glued the footprints down on paper to make a path, or "walk" through the events of their book and created a summary sentence to summarize all the events into one thought.

PM activities:
Yesterday, we earned our 50th, 51st, and 52nd compliments in the hallway which means it is time for a reward!  Thus, I allowed the students to have a movie theater party where they ate popcorn and watched a movie.  It was a nice afternoon and I LOVE it when the students earn rewards!

Tomorrow will be such a PERFECT day to get out and enjoy beautiful fall weather!  I'm feeling a fire-pit night...anyone else?!?  Ooooo...I can just taste the apple cider, s'mores, and pumpkin pie now...can you?!?  I. LOVE. FALL!  Do you?!?

Have a fabulous weekend!
Mrs. Thomas
