Please send in all donated items by TUESDAY MORNING, 12-17-13. Thank you for making our special buddy project a success, and look for photos of our project soon!

Because our Class Dojo earned 20 points, the class voted on a new avatar! To do this, each child wrote a vote in a complete sentence on a white board. We then tallied the votes and analyzed our results. Jess was the Dojo with the most votes --- she is our new avatar until we reach 30!
In Writer's Workshop, we discussed the steps to writing. We learned a little poem with dance moves to guide us in the process.
We will be discussing each of these steps during Workshop. Today, we talked about the "Think It" step. Writers should write about topics they know. We created a "heart map" that will help us choose topics if we are ever stuck. We drew pictures in each section of the heart for numbers 1-9. Miss Weinstein taped the hearts in our Writer's Notebook. "If you can think it, you can write it!"
