WEEK OF DECEMBER 9-13
There are ONLY 10 more days before the Winter Break! WOW! During this time, I will be starting 10 days of giving for my students. Each day I will unveil the gift of the day so PLEASE feel free to ask your child! Today’s gift is NO HOMEWORK for the next two weeks (except reading 20 minutes daily)!

In READING, we are continuing our non-fiction unit and students will be working in groups to research extreme weather. Students will learn that experts live in the world differently. They don’t keep their expert knowledge to themselves. Instead, they share this knowledge by teaching people in their communities. Students will be sharing their knowledge by creating a BrainPOP video on their topic! We will have a video viewing celebration at the end of next week.
In MATH, we will continue our unit on division and working on our perimeter/area gingerbread house designs. Their knowledge of multiplication and division facts are very important. Please keep practicing if your child does not know them.
In WRITING, students are continuing to design a tacky holiday sweater and write a persuasive essay about why their sweater is the best. Students will complete their designs this week and draft their writing. We will be working to add lots of sensory details to make our writing pop!
In SOCIAL STUDIES, we will continue studying the three branches of government.
