Family and Friendship
This week we have been focusing on our social studies unit on Family and Friendship. One of the projects we do incorporates our theme into our Writer's Workshop time. We've been creating family books in the shape of a house. They are also accordion style books, something new! I sent homework with students a couple of weeks ago asking them to answer some questions about their own family. Using the answers they composed, we created "house books" about each child's family. After vacation we will be inviting guests in for a family tea party to share our great work! I'm looking forward to helping the children plan their party as they will be the "hosts". 

Here are some pictures from our newest writing project. Enjoy!

And.....have a marvelous vacation as we are off for spring break next week. Yay!
