News You Can Use!
PAWS Pride- The PAWS Pride lesson this week focused on following directions in the classroom. A big part of our day is spent using technology. We reviewed the importance of listening to directions when on the Chromebook during independent work and whole group instruction, even when playing a game or listening to music may be more appealing.
Holiday Grab Bag- The students are so excited about this activity! The gifts are due on Wednesday, Dec. 16th. Please make sure the gift is wrapped and labeled with the receiver's name. The sender needs to describe themselves on the label but NOT reveal their name. It is a secret!
Five Below Fundraiser- The PTA is doing a fundraiser at Five Below. You can shop Dec. 11th-Dec.13th and 10% of the total dollars spent will be donated back to the PTA! This would be a great place to shop for the Grab Bag gifts:) Click the link below for more details about this fundraiser. Happy Shopping!

Hour of Code!
This week we started Hour of Code. Hour of Code is a website where you can make a character move by moving blocks that say things like ''move forward'' or ''turn right''.There are 4 themes. They are Minecraft, Tynker, Combat, and Star Wars. If we finish our work in the morning, we can code.Same with daily five. When she does Global Read Aloud, we can code while she reads. By Kate
Our students participated in the Hour of Code during Computer Science Education Week this week. They just LOVED it! Last year, 15 million students tried computer science in one week. This year, we joined students worldwide to reach 100 million students! For more information go to http://hourofcode.com/us
