Hello! I hope everyone had a great Fall Break! I was out the past two days sick, which is why you did not get a homework e-mail from me.
Today the students reviewed theme/central idea in class. They will have a check over theme tomorrow, so I wanted to brush up and make sure they remembered how to determine a theme.
I’m also excited to share that my Language Arts classes are partnering with Books as Bridges. We will be writing to two different classrooms. One is located in Ecuador and the other is in the southern province of Zambia. Each student will be assigned to a pen-pal. The students from Ecuador are all 10th grade students while the students from Zambia range from 1st grade through 7th grade. This is an opportunity for the students to learn about school in another country. Around the holidays we will ship them a package about the United States and about Kentucky and we will receive a package back with contents related to their country. The students seem excited to write their letters and say hello to their new friends!
