What a wonderful event! Your child did an amazing job reciting a mentor poem and reading two original works of art. Hopefully, poetry will be a life long love for your child. Thank you to the Homeroom Moms for getting and setting up the goodies to eat and drink. A special thanks to the Makwana's for donating the coffee and hot chocolate from their It's A Grind Coffee Shop. Thank you Mrs. Van de Vere for donating the flowers and Mrs. Davey for donating the marshmallows. Also, thank you Mrs. Bao and Mrs. Zhang for cleaning up afterwards and getting the Coffee House room back to normal.
Our December character trait is PATIENCE. It is hard at this time of the year to have this trait.

December Night Writes are due on Thursday, December 18th. Your child is to write one fabulous narrative. It should include an introduction, 2-3 body paragraphs, and a conclusion. We have discussed that you MUST write to the prompt you choose. The introduction should state or hint at the prompt- it must catch the reader's attention. The body paragraphs should be in chronological order since this is a personal story (from the heart) about a small moment in time. These paragraphs should be descriptive by showing not telling. Use figurative language to spice things up, but do not go overboard, a little goes a long way. Be sure that the conclusion reflects on or readdresses the prompt. No new information should be in the conclusion.
