On Monday, our class continued essays work focusing on including our thesis statement in our topic sentences, and writing supporting sentences. We also started Worldly Wise unit 5. On Tuesday, we were gone most of the morning until 11:30. We were at the high school rehearsing for our band and chorus performance. During Wednesday, we focused our reading time on looking at the words that authors use in writing. While we read our novels we looked for a word, or two that we felt was important to each chapter. We then shared our words and explained why it was an important word to the story and why we choose that certain word.

Friday came and our two classes took the difficult Wordly Wise test and worked some more on our essays. After lunch time, Mr. Rosco came in and talked to us about St. Bahkitia Primary School in Uganda. We saw lots of pictures! He showed us what the daily life looked like at the refugee camps. We also talked about the fundraiser that we will do in late February before Mr. Roscoe makes a trip back to Uganda in March. These are the same friends that we received letters from a few weeks ago. During the end of our day, we continued our class read-a-loud book, Because of Mr. Terupt. For the last 20 minutes of the day we silent read our free choice book. Everyone is excited for the upcoming snowy weekend! Keep your fingers crossed for a big SNOW!
