It seems that most are catching on to the routine quite nicely this second week of school. Choir starts next Monday and Band starts on the 22nd of September. There is an informational meeting for parents about band on the 16th. Please check your child's planner for details.

In Social Studies, we've been working on learning our continents. We've just started introducing the Constitution as a build up to next week's Constitution Day. The first grades for Social Studies will be posted on Parent Viewer this weekend.

In Language Arts, we've started Writers' Workshop (quite successfully, I might add). Students have a lot to say and we're working on getting in down on paper in a coherent and interesting way. We're adding Sparkle Words wherever we can to make our writing more precise.

The Lizards are off to a great start!
