         What a great start to the 5th grade year!!!! The kids and I have really enjoyed looping together.  I feel like we’re one BIG family! We seem to have a strong community within our classroom where everyone feels safe and can trust each other. One student made a comment that we’re stronger together, than we are apart! J  

        Our class is beginning to launch a writing unit on Memoirs.  In a memoir, the writer focuses in on a short period of time in his or her life.  Students will be putting together a memory box that will contain photographs, objects, or drawings, of an important period of their life.  Each item in the box should remind them of a story they could tell and write about in their writer’s notebook.  I’m really looking forward to the kids sharing their memories!
