In reading, I have introduced the literary term perspective. We practiced this concept by thinking of items for which someone or something else may be thankful. Look at some of the examples below:

George said, “If I were a football player, I would be thankful for the touchdown zone, my football, my pads, my mouthpiece, my eyes, and my feet.”

Cailin stated, “If I were a horse, I would be thankful for hay, grass, water, trainers, riders, and friends.”

Makena said, “If I were a rock star, I would be thankful for music, microphones, the stage, my fans, my voice, and radios.”

Aaron wrote, “If I were Olly, my guinea pig, I would be thankful for hay, Aaron, water, a cage, bedding, fur, oxygen, and a lock.”

Hudson explained, “If I were a policeman, I would be thankful for my gun, my police car, my partner, my chief, and my computer.”

Math Turkeys

I have been so impressed with the mental math skills I have seen this year. The students in my math group each wrote a target number on a turkey and then wrote equations which equaled the selected number.

Persuasive Turkeys

We wrote a persuasive paragraph with a topic sentence, three details, and a closing sentence. Wow, we have learned a lot about writing! Come and read the rest of the paragraphs across from our room.

We had two special readers this week. Nicole’s big sister chose to read to our class as her “good work” award. What an honor! Aaron’s mom brought Olly and read Guinea Dog to us. I think everyone wants a guinea pig now.
