HOW is it already Decemeber! This year is absolutley FLYING but I am LOVING it. I am enjoying each and every one of your kiddos so much. I always miss my own babies when I'm at work. (Don't we all?!) But I also miss your kiddos over the breaks and on the weekends when we aren't at school! They are sweet, smart, and I am having a lot of fun with them.
Here is what is coming up this week:
We had a great fall but the temperatures are starting to feel more like the time of year it really is. Please start sending a coat and any cold weather accessories with your child to school. We will go outside if it is 32 or above (actual temp and wind chill).
We have started our 2nd non-fiction writing piece! Students have picked a topic about space and have done a tiny bit of research. This week, we will have more time to collect facts and information and start writing our papers.
(Our first piece was a book about an animal they chose! Those will be coming home by the end of the week!)
Students took their 2nd Quarter District Writing Assessment on Friday. This week, we will talk about comparing more than one text and reteaching and retesting any standards that need a little extra work. :)
We are in our 6th topic of math. This topic is applying addition and multiplication to find area. This week we will cover our last two lessons and test by Friday. I will send a study guide home on Wednesday. This is just for extra practice and not required.
We have started our unit on government. This week we will learn about some of our national symbols and what they stand for.
Winter Party- Our winter party will be on Wednesday, Dec. 21st. This is our half day before students get out for winter break. If you have a wish or an idea for this party, let me know ASAP. ;) Otherwise, Be watching for a signup coming out in the next week or so!
