Reading

We are reading Unit 6 in the Superkids this week. We will be learning about Characters and Dialogue.
We are also beginning a unit on the Polar Express. There will be a project due on Monday, Dec. 14. More information on this project will come home today. You may turn them in early.
The end of the nine weeks is only three weeks away. Please don't wait until the end to try and get AR goals. The week before Christmas Break gets very crazy.
