Dear Families, 

Welcome back! We have Art-in-Action this Friday at 1:15 if you would like to stop by and help out.

I am asking students to bring in a collection of no more than five items for our writing unit. These items should fit into the gallon baggy that is being sent home. We be using the collections for about two weeks before they are returned.

 The collections should be similar, but not identical. Examples include:

 ·      Lego guys

·      Matchbox cars

·      Shopkins

·      headbands

·      Pokemon cards

·      Action figures

·      Small stuffed animals

·      Key chains

 The collections should be different enough that it would be easy to tell at least three differences between the items. For example, don’t bring in a red, blue, purple, green, and yellow pencil collection since they only differ by color.
