Winter MAP Testing - December 13th-14th
We are doing our mid-year winter MAP testing before the winter break this year. We will be MAP testing next week on Tuesday, December 13th and Wednesday, December 14th. There is nothing your child needs to do to prepare for these tests except to get a good night's sleep and eat a good breakfast that morning. This is just a check to be sure students are making adequate progress on their yearly goals.
Winter Celebration - December 22nd
No School - December 23rd-Jan 2nd
Speak Up 2016
The Speak Up Research Project polls K-12 students, parents and educators about the role of technology for learning in and out of school and represents the largest collection of authentic, unfiltered stakeholder voice on digital learning. Since 2003, more than 4.5 million participants have shared their views and ideas through Speak Up. Education, business and policy leaders report that they use the data regularly to inform federal, state and local education programs. The Speak Up 2016 online surveys open October 12, 2016 through December 16, 2016. Please read more at Speak Up 2016 Flyer.

December Class Updates
In social studies this month, we are learning about the problems in society that were caused by the Industrial Revolution. We will also take a look at the Progressive Era, and discuss some of the solutions to some of these problems. Students will also be doing a research project on a person or group of people that took a stand during this time period to make a change for the better.
In math, the students are working on a self-paced fraction unit. Students will be able to take responsibility of their own learning and work at their own pace. All the resources for this unit can be found in our Schoology course.
In science, we are starting a new unit on Electricity and Magnetism. There are many fun hands-on activities that we will be doing with this unit including students coming up with their own question and experiment at the end of the unit.
In language arts, we are finishing up our personal narrative writing unit. The week before winter break, we will be doing a mini-unit comparing and contrasting our read aloud book Holes with the movie. Students will need to write a paper comparing and contrasting how reading a book is different than watching a movie using this experience.
