What's Up in the Classroom


Students are finishing up division and will test next week!


The students will work on their flashlights next week. They should bring in any supplies they need to create a flashlight. They are allowed to be creative and utilize whatever they choose. You are not required to purchase supplies, this is optional only. They are creating designs that are practical, unique and easy to operate. Once created they have to choose a way to present them to the classroom. This could be an Explain Everything, an iMovie, a skit or a commercial. They will be presenting them next week and the following week. Please look at Schoology if you would like to see the lessons we do each day!

Language Arts

This week we worked on prepositional phrases and how to use them. We did some note taking and took a short Kahoot quiz on them. Look in Schoology for our Language Arts Notebook and you will find examples.


Students are still working on opinion pieces as well as a Winter Wonder Writing Piece. These have been posted outside in the hallway! Ask your child what they wondered and summarized about!

MAPS testing

We will do MAPS testing Tuesday, December 15th and Wednesday,December 16th of next week!

Teacher Reminders and Notes

  • Each student needs to bring in a shoe box/or a bag to wrap a very special gift. We will take any extra boxes, wrapping paper, tissue paper that you would like to donate.Thank you!
