The fifth graders completed their Summarizing essay. While writing this essay, they focused on transitional words and phrasing, and expanding their vocabulary. This month they are entering a writing contest in conjunction with their Religion/Social Studies. Students are to choose a Catholic historical character (born before 1900) from North America (Canada, U.S., Mexico) and write about his or her life. They are to include why he or she was important to the Church and country. These will be completed by mid-November.
As always, if you have any questions/concerns please feel free to email me. Thank you!
