Throughout the year, the fifth grade students will have opportunities to write in various genres. Each student will have their own Writer’s Notebook.
In order to make the notebook personal to each child, I would like to have each child decorate the notebook with pictures from his or her life.
Please send in 10-20 pictures of your child. These pictures can be of family, friends, pets, any life experiences, etc. The size of the pictures should be no bigger than 4x8 inches. You may send actual photographs or photos printed on paper.
These pictures will be used to make a collage on the outside of the Writer’s Notebook. All pictures will be cut, glued and then laminated to their notebook. At the end of the year your child will be able to keep his or her Writer’s Notebook, which will have writing ideas from throughout the year.
If you could send the pictures into school with your child on the first day of school, that would be great!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
