This week in Upper Elementary we’ve been busy completing several projects. First, our literary essays are complete. These are 5-paragraph essays which include a claim and 3 main reasons to support the claim. They follow a typical 5-paragraph essay structure with an introduction, 3-paragraph body, and a conclusion. You should see a copy of the final draft in your child’s mailbox.

Since we completed the reading for our literary circle book, we’ve been busy working on presentations for the class. These presentations will include background information on the story, with a focus on main versus secondary characters, conflict, and plot.
We’ve also finished the first round of project-based homework, which means there have been presentations all week. These have been great! Thanks for all your hard work at home supporting these projects.
