Hi families!

We are starting a super exciting writing project for the next 2 weeks!  We are linking what is happening in Reading with what we are doing in Writing.  Right now they are reading a Hero story in Miss Bublitz's class, so they are going to write their own Hero story in my class.  It has to follow The Hero's Journey process, but they get to create their own superhero, events, conflict and conclusion.  Almost every Hero (superhero) story follows the same path, so I am encouraging them to watch a superhero movie.  It's completely your decision which one and this is completely optional.  While they are watching I would like them to think about the Hero's Journey that is happening so they can see how their writing follows the same path as what happens in books and movies.  This makes their writing more "real life". 

We are also starting Science this week!  We will be doing Populations and Ecosystems until December, so anytime you see an ecosystem it would be great to take a minute and let them investigate it.  I am encouraging them to see how many ecosystems are all around them and they don't even realize it most of the time! 

Thanks for all you do and please let me know if you have any questions!!
