Monday, December 12: A Winter-Themed STEM Activity

Tuesday, December 13: Winter-Themed Snack & a Movie

Wednesday, December 14: "Snow Day": Some fun indoor "snow" activities (students may not want to wear clothes they don't want to get shaving cream on, but it does wash out real easily!)

Thursday, December 15: Winter Party

Friday, December 16-Tuesday, January 3: Winter Break!

What We Will Be Learning This Week!


We are stating our Financial Literacy unit. It is largely a review from previous years, however students are now expected to be able to balance a simple budget using their knowledge of all four operations with decimals.


We are starting Unit 4 in which we will be exploring the forces that physically shape the Earth, as well as what happens to fossils in the ground.


We are starting our unit on realistic fiction, we will be reading AND writing it.

Social Studies

The Revolution has ended and now we will be learning about how the Founding Fathers came together to set up our new nation!

Winter Class Parties
