We've made it to the half-way point in the school year! I'm looking forward to a short and fun week with you before we spend the holiday break with our friends and family.
This week we will participate in the Project WET River of Words Poetry project. River of Words is a yearly publication of poems and artwork that are inspired by watersheds. We will explore different types of poems and you will create your own River of Words poem. If you choose to do so, you can submit your poem for possible publication in the 2019 edition of River of Words! We've had some Ellis students' works highlighted in the book, and I'm excited to see if we have any current students among its pages, as well!
Other than the poem, the only other required assignment you will have is your vocabulary quiz on Monday. Your words can be found in your Google Classroom account. Remember, 5th graders do not have a vocabulary list because of the Tybee 4H camping trip.
Most importantly, all works from the second term are due by Wednesday, December 19. Any works from the second term that are not handed in by holiday break will be marked as incomplete. 6th graders will receive a zero in the grade book for incomplete works. Please refer to your workplan and/or powerschool to see if you are missing any required assignments.
Finally, our book exchange will take place Wednesday after our annual holiday sing-along. Please bring a wrapped new or like-new book for your secret pal. Be sure to put a tag on it stating who it is to and from. Friday is also a dress down day for $1.00.
Have a nice weekend,
