We are working hard on learning how authors organize their texts! These organizational structures are: description, sequence, problem/solution, cause and effect and compare and contrast.
This is a new skill for third graders and this can be incredibly difficult to grasp! We are working for two whole weeks on this skill! I am instructing students, using whole group, small group, guided practice and independent practice to reinforce these skills. Please let me know if you have any questions! Please watch this video for a brief introduction to these skills!
Following an administrative meeting this afternoon, it has been decided that ALL White Oak District campuses (high school, middle school, intermediate school, and primary school) will be closed Thursday, December 14th, and Friday, December 15th. This decision was made in the best interest and health considerations for our students, faculty, and staff members.
There will be NO outside activities of any kind (i.e. Select Volleyball, choir, Boys and Girls Club, etc.). NO ONE will be allowed in the building during these four days.
We will return to school on Monday, December 18th, and we will follow the original schedule that has been set in place for next week. Christmas Parties will remain on the same days and at the same times. Early Release times for Tuesday and Wednesday will remain at 12:15 for Intermediate students.
Because all outside activities have been canceled, our students will NOT be caroling at the local banks. Instead, the select choir will perform on Tuesday morning at 8:45, and parents are invited to attend and may check out their students at the end of the performance.
We look forward to seeing a healthier YOU on Monday
