Next week is full to the brim with academic activities. While we're in a holiday season, we still have only so many days until the end of the quarter and Ms. Fenwick and I have engaging, academic plans for each and every day. As you make your holiday plans, please let us know in advance if your child will be missing a day and please try to avoid having them miss if at all possible! Thanks!

From Ms. Fenwick

Spelling: No spelling this week! The new words for the week after Thanksgiving are already on the homepage of my eCLASS course page for those of you who like to look ahead.

Reading: We will be focusing on character traits this week using a play, The Monster in the Cave. The students will continue to read their own individualized selections for their Genre Bingo Card--we have started over for the new 9 weeks. Wordly Wise Lesson 7 this week! Don't forget that a Reading Check-In on eCLASS is due every Friday under Second Nine Weeks.

Writing: We will be focusing on Complex Sentences this week using a mentor sentence we found in a story we will read together, The Turkey Race. We will finish up our research and complete our informational writing about the an aspect of the Solar System.

From Mrs. Turner

  • SS: We discussed precolonies (Jamestown, Roanoke, Plymouth). Next week we will move into the original 13 colonies! This unit is a ton of fun, so ask your child about it a lot!

Colonial Day

  • Colonial Day will be December 18th! We dress up for this, so I've included some pictures of some dressed up in the past. . . Please know there are many ways to dress up and don't all require spending money. HOWEVER, if you plan to purchase your child's costume, you may want to watch the Halloween sales to get the costumes inexpensively.

Don't Forget!
