We have finished our “Important” pieces of writing and they are now on display in the classroom. View the slideshow to see what is important about each of us!
The students have been learning about gravity, as part of our “Force and Motion” unit with Ms. Matheny. They had the opportunity to work in small groups to apply and share their thinking about gravity in a variety of ways. Check-out the video that shows some of ways the students’ shared their learning.

We are learning to add details to our stories. We are using a story map to help us through this process. Our story map has required us to start with a small moment and think about important details. We have included characters, the setting, a controlling idea, three important details and an ending. Once our maps were created, we were ready to start writing! We have been using these maps to keep us organized as we start writing the beginnings of our stories. We are all off to a super start!
