October 19

Hello!  Another wonderful week at Brantner, and tonight is the Fall Festival!  What a nice thing to look forward to on such a rainy, chilly day.

The students are mastering the concepts of character and setting.  We are also working on "Classifying and Categorizing."  They are doing well with this skill.  In math, we continue to compare groups that are greater, less than, or equal to.  This week, Miss Kemen and I began small writing circles.  We are working on the steps of the writing process.  We brainstormed a list of things that we know about school (using our schema).  Next week, we will work as a group to write the first draft of a true story about school.  The students will share their stories with the other group at the end of this five week process.  The class is really excited to be authors!
