The children learned the qualifications to run for president and the responsibilities of a president. We wrote about what we would do if elected president.
We are learning that an author writes for three main purposes: to inform, to persuade, or to entertain. We practiced writing persuasively. Which pumpkin would you choose?
We had a mock election.

Casting our Ballot
Wearing the “I Voted” Sticker
Mr. Romney was declared the winner!
We wrote friendly letters to children who attend the Sierra Leone International Mission School (SLIMS) in Africa. They were hand delivered by one of the KRCS Board members. Less than a week later, we received individual responses. The children were so excited to learn they have new friends in Africa! The letters are displayed in the hallway.
Many thanks to the moms who planned our fall party!
Smith did a great job summarizing our field trip for you in his journal.
So pleased with how much growth I’ve seen in the children’s writing skills.
We have been using our new i Pads!
