Working together to find Cause and Effect

Our latest reading skill we’re practicing is Cause and Effect. The students worked with partners today to find causes and effects in a reading passage about tornadoes.

Friendly letters – addresses needed

April 10, 2018

The students are going to be writing a friendly letter and sending it off to someone they know but don’t live with. I sent home a paper yesterday asking students to get the address of someone they would like to write a letter to. Please help them get an address so we can send our letters out early next week. The students also need to write down their own address so we can use that for the return address. Thanks!
