This week, Language Arts classes focused on finishing up our unit on energy. We will be taking our final assessment in the second quarter early next week. We will be diving into our next unit (Making a New Nation) in the near future! This unit will focus on the strong connections between language arts and social studies. Our recent writings have been focused on citing multiple sources to support our opinions. As always, please make sure your student is reading for 20 minutes every night! Happy January!

Take Home Batman the Hedgehog for the Weekend
Batman is looking to go on vacation with your child! I have some very interested children who would love to take him home.
If you do take him home, I ask that he not be left with other large pets or small children. A shelf is fine where he is out of harms way. He eats cat food and needs to have his bedding cleaned out daily. Your child would receive a Mini Batman Training Course before they take him home. He is easy to take care of. He will have so much fun in your home! Sign up today!
