November 3 - 7

Bacon Bears

Focusing on today, tomorrow and the future!

November is here! We have so many awesome things happening in November, but before I go into that, let's take a look at October. We accomplished so many activities! We did so much you might forget. Check out the October Rewind (using Animoto):

October Rewind

November, in some respects, is a fast month. We have 4 days off (2 for NJEA Convention and 2 for the Thanksgiving Holiday) so I am sure that this month will fly by. I am sure everyone is excited for some of November's cool activities such as World Run Day (11/11), Sneaker Day (11/14), Turkey Feast (11/19), Bear Bucks Store (11/20), not to mention Parent Conferences (11/21, 11/24, and 11/25). Well, we will take it one day at a time and truly enjoy this month!

Reporter of the Week
The 4th and 5th graders were treated to an assembly on Writing Like a Reporter by Chris Torres of the Daily Journal. He talked with the kids about his college days, reporting schedule, and some of his most interesting stories. The students are now going to be writing stories for the RM Bacon Weekly. This week's story is by 5th grader, Gio.

This week in Mrs. Benson's class we have been having lots of fun! This Tuesday we had our annual Halloween Frolic and it was a blast! Everyone was pretty scary! This Friday we had our annual Halloween Parade and it was awesome! On Thursday we had an assembly and we got to meet Chris Torres, a reporter from the Daily Journal. He told us what being a reporter meant to him. We even got a picture with him and we got his autograph! This week we also studied the life cycle of a pumpkin.
