A Glimpse of the Week
We will be working on a Polar Express unit this week. Tuesday Mr. Woods will be kicking it off with a read aloud of the book for the whole class. On Thursday, we will view the movie and enjoy our own hot, hot, hot, hot chocolate!
Thursday and Friday
The CORE Carnival Celebration is on Friday. The students will enjoy a movie theater experience in the LGI room. There will be concessions to purchase with CORE Cash as students view a movie. They may purchase a pillow and blanket pass to bring on Friday as well.
We are not having an "official" holiday party time. We will be doing engaging activities all week that pertain to the holidays.
Students will be choosing 4 say something stems from their Comprehension Strategies flyer based on the book they read each night for 30 minutes. They will write 4 stems each night.

Last week, students participated in the Hour of Code. Students explored and learned how to code at code.org. We will continue to explore coding through the year.
Selfie-Retakes: Things are looking good so far...but it is the last week before break. I need your support to remind students each day to stay focused. :)
