Our long awaited start to reading the novel Hoot began this week! The Hurricane Team is extremely excited about the cross-curriculum approach to this unit! On October 21 and October 22, 2015, the Hurricane Team has guests coming to share their knowledge and help us develop further how we can be superheroes of our environment. Wednesday the Hurricane Team will have representatives from Pocahontas’s State Park visit us. Our speaker will talk to us about conservation, habitat, and endangered species in the United States. The Lead Park Interpreter at Pocahontas State Park will also narrow our focus and offer a view into how these issues affect us in our state of Virginia. Then on Thursday, the Thunder Eagle Wildlife Organization in Dinwiddie will pay us a visit during our fifth period. This group provides care and treatment of injured, orphaned or displaced birds and small mammals. Their primary goal is to support nature’s balance by compassionate care of wildlife, which is a BIG message or theme that is shared throughout our novel. If you can make it, please join us for these special presentations they will start at 11:00 in the lecture room at JEJ Moore Middle School. We welcome your participation!
As always, “Thank You” for allowing me to share my love of English with your child this year! Again, a big "HIGH-FIVE" to all Hurricanes on a great sixth week of school! Have a restful weekend!
