Week of December 7th - December 11th
Each student had the opporunity to create an account on code.org and spend some time creating code (this website can be accessed at home as well!). Creating code is a skill used to build phone apps, websites, and video games. The main focus of this program is to get all students, especially girls involved and interested in computer science.
For more information about how your child can change the world with code, watch this promotional video for Hour of Code: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFPg96gdPkc

Reader's Workshop / Literacy
Unit 4 Test Complete!
Unit 5 focuses on fractions! Family letter will be on it's way home soon!
Friendly reminder: All students have access their login codes for both Xtra math and Front Row (both math support websites!). If you have access to the internet, I highly encourage the extra math practice to continue improving fact fluency and assist with content practice!
