We are reading to start working on our first draft of our personal experience narrative.  We will be first sharing it with a friend while they take notes of important details and questions that they have while listening.  We will then take those suggestions as we put it on paper/screen.  Students may bring their own device with parent permission.

You need 9 Writer's Notebook entries by 9/20.  Remember these need to be at least 20 minutes writing time about your ideas, wondering, ponderings, on-going stories, short story, poetry, etc.  Our first notebook check will be around 20 entries.

Sixth graders leave for Keystone Science School on Wednesday.  I know that they will have a great time especially the rock smashing. 

Check out the Star News for fundraising updates and contests.  We are currently doing a fundraiser with magazines and Lovebags.
