Candy House Party Update

Just about everyone has confirmed with me what they are bringing. If you didn't sign up during the Holiday Lunch, please check the message I sent you in Class Messenger.

The fun will begin at 12:00 on Thursday, the 17th. Immediately after the party, we will go to Sing Around the Tree. You are welcome to stay and be a part of the final Lincoln Sing Around the Tree. (The school has been doing this at least 35 years.)

Reading Middle of the Year Testing

Everyone increased their grade on the Reading Street test. Many people made 20% gains. Your child should be able to tell you his/her test score and new lexile. Most children also had a growth in lexile. Official results will go home after we finish our Middle of the Year math testing in January.

Real Life Skills in Math

We have been working with dividing and multiplying fractions. This means that your child should be able to help with the holiday cooking. Have a recipe for six, but need to be able to serve 12? Your child should be able to scale it/ increase it for you. Have a recipe that serves 12 but you only need eight servings? Your child should be able to help you scale it/decrease it.

American Revolution

Next week we will wrap up our American Revolution with a day at Valley Forge and then the Battle of Yorktown. The kids will also research a few battles and make a Battle Ball.

After Break we will jump into the foundation of our government.

Santa Persuasive Pieces

Overall, these were the most convincing Santa pieces I have ever read. I will be

able to send many to the Ft. Campbell Courier for possible publication.
