Homework this week: WORK ON YOUR SEPTEMBER READING LOG!
Thursday News: Today the fourth graders finished up ISTEP. The third graders have one more test and we’ll take that on Monday. We talked about Tomas and the Library Lady. We had a wonderful DEAR time and we had a good literature group for Secret Soldier. I liked the video we watched about the Potawatomi. They have a sad history, but they’re still here to tell the tale! Hooray, tomorrow’s Friday!
Wednesday News: More ISTEP’ing today. Everyone’s hanging in there and working hard. I’m very proud of
the kiddos in 201. We also read about the Little Rock Nine in our weekly Time for Kids. How has ISTEP been going for you?
Monday News: Today we had a great literature discussion about Music of Dolphins with the fourth graders. I can’t wait to meet with the other groups later in the week. We also talked in small groups about Tomas and the Library Lady. I love that book. We tried to listen to a radio show about a new version of This Land Is Your Land, but our computer wouldn’t let us. WAH!
What did you check out from the library today?
Third graders took a math test today and fourth graders worked on some math review.

I was in a meeting with other teachers. We looked
over some of the writing samples from 201. Teachers were very impressed with your planning and your writing. Well done! Finally, some cooler weather, I’m so happy!
