Holiday Celebration

The holiday celebration will be held on the afternoon of 12/18 from 1:30-3:00. If you would like to help out with the celebration, please contact me. I would like to plan a winter craft, a game, and a small snack. Please let me know if you would like to help organize this or volunteer.

Hour of Code

Next week is the Hour of Code. We will be working on coding each day. Please be sure that your child has a fully charged iPad each day so that they can participate in this amazing experience. It is a Star Wars theme this year to coincide with the release of the new Star Wars movie. The students are very excited about Hour of Code.

Math

We just finished up our multiplication and division unit. We are starting our Geometry unit next week after we take our pre-test today. The math test and reflection should have come home in your child's data binder last night. We will be learning about triangles, quadrilaterals, angles, area, geometric transformations, 3D shapes and nets, volume, and surface area. Please have your child bring a protractor to school by Friday, 12/11 to use to measure angles.

iPad Check

Please check your child's iPad on occasion for games that are not related to school. These games are not beneficial academically and just take up memory space on the iPad. We are constantly adding apps for school use and are finding that we need space. You can also help by wiping down the iPad with a microfiber cloth. Remember too... you can delete games/apps on your child's iPad that are a distraction and you can take the iPad away anytime that you feel necessary.

Discovery Quests coming Week of 12/14
