We talked about our Poetry Cafe presentations today, and I gave everyone examples and a few more pointers on to how effectively talk about their poets and the poems they will be reciting.  We also talked about having some "cafe" breakfast treats on Friday morning to accompany our presentations.  If you are able to send in some goodies, this would be greatly appreciated.  I will provide juice, cups and napkins.

I hope you all enjoyed the Thanksgiving break.  Only 3 weeks left of the first half of 5th grade!

I sent home information regarding the school science fair.  It is an optional activity that students complete at home.

We will have our in-class spelling bee tomorrow.  I've attached a link to the sample spelling word list below.
*** I just found out that I don't need to submit my spelling winners' names until next week, so I will wait a bit longer to have the bee in my class.
