    Happy October! 
            It's been a wonderful start of the school year.  Students shared their "All About Me Bags", we started rotations in science and PE, and now we're learning how to dance!  Mrs. Sloan is teaching the 4th graders a few different contemporary dances for our enrichment program this month.  We just had our first dance class yesterday, and students loved it!  We will send home information about the performance later in the month, but I think it is going to be a great show.
            Thank you to the moms who helped with our Johnny Appleseed Day.  Our class had a great time with learning about his life, tasting applesauce and apple juice, creating lovely apple prints, and learning about the history of apples.  We just started the graphic organizer for a 5 paragraph narrative about our day.  We'll publish our essays very soon!
            We also just finished presenting our "Books In A Bag."  Students accepted the challenge to present the story elements in their own unique style and they were amazing!    
            Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns and keep a look out for flyers that go home as well as Class Dojo messages.
