Upcoming Dates:

  • December 22- Christmas Celebration at 1 p.m.
  • December 23- January 4- Christmas Break (No School for Students)
  • Januray 5- First Day Back for Students


Next week, we will be getting ready for the break by finishing up any unfinished work and taking our Unit 4 Big Idea 2 test. The students will be enjoying their last day of school by having a Polar Express day of fun and singing carols in the afternoon! Remember to dress your kiddos in warm pajamas on Tuesday for the fun!

This is what it will look like the week we come back from break:

Word Work- put, why, think, good, very

Reading- We will practice how to respond to books by writing about our reading in our reading journals. The students will be responding in various ways to fictional books about winter themes.

Writing- We will get ready to take our middle of the year writing prompt by reviewing what good writers do and answering some writing prompts.

Math- We will start Unit 4, Big Idea 3 when we come back from the break. The students will explore ways to add two digit numbers.

Science- We will be experimenting with light, energy, and sound during our science time. I am excited to see the connections they make as they familiarize themselves with these concepts!

I am excited to see those of you who have volunteered to attend the Christmas celebration next week. For those of you who I don't see before the break, have a Merry Christmas and a restful break! :)
