Hello Parents and Students,

Today we started our poetry unit in Language Arts 🙂 I wanted to start this unit early in the year so that the students can start strengthening their descriptive vocabulary. Also, I wanted to zone-in on the Language Arts Big Idea: “Language and text can be a source of creativity and joy.”

So, today we started writing simile poems. At the end of the poetry unit we will celebrate our writing with a “Poetry Cafe.” More information on this celebration will be coming in the next few weeks 🙂

A reminder that tomorrow is an early dismissal day… students will be dismissed at 2:00.

Finally, in science today we started our unit about “Body Systems.” In particular, for both the grade 5 and 6’s, we began by discussing what a system is and why it is important.

Finally, I will be away this Thursday. I have a minor procedure to do at Lions Gate. If all goes well I am hoping to be back by Friday. Overall the students did great with the TOC last week, so I expect the same level of helpfulness and respect on Thursday. Thanks division 3!

Have a wonderful evening!

Mr. Meyer
