Paragraph of the Week
Plovers can now earn bonus pay for completing extra writing practice at home! Every week, I will post a new writing prompt in the newsletter. Responding to these prompts will support the narrative writing we are currently working on in the classrooms, but this extra homework assignment is optional. If your student would prefer to type their essay instead of writing it, they can email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or bring in a printed copy.
Expectations for Paragraph of the Week:
- Write at least 5 sentences.
- Tell about one time you did something and include details.
- Your story should have a beginning, middle and end.
- Sentences have correct capitalization and punctuation.
- Neat handwriting.

We visited the Portland Art Museum last week to see Native American artifacts. Students used a strategy called "See-Think-Wonder" as they explored the exhibits in the art museum. Each Plover chose 2 pieces of Native American art from different regions and answered the following questions:
- What do you see?
- What do you think about that?
- What does it make you wonder?
