This week we will have our third grade performance of "How to be a Pirate." The students will be rehearsing on Monday and Wednesday afternoon during school hours. The "pirates" will practice Tuesday morning and during their recess. On Thursday, we will perform for the school at 8:30 and 1:30 and for the community at 6:15 p.m. I look forward to seeing you there!
We have recently started reading several Thanksgiving stories featuring turkeys who disguise themselves to escape being an entree at Thanksgiving dinner! We know that in order to write well, we need to read lots of good examples of text before we can begin. Therefore, once we finish reading many good examples, we will write our own creative story starring a disguised turkey.
We will create our turkey's disguise at home and write our story during school hours. Our turkeys are trying to disguise themselves so the farmer cannot find them for Thanksgiving dinner.
Please disguise your turkey at home. It might be a football player, a scientist, or something not even human. You may use any materials you wish to create the disguise. Think creatively!
It is due Monday, November 14, 2011.
Thanks for your help with this project.
