The Week Ahead: December 17-21, 2018

Hello Parents!  This is our LAST week before winter break!  We have so much fun planned, so I will be doing my blog post a little differently this week.  Read on to find out what we will be doing everyday!

Monday:  We will watch a performance in the morning, so our schedule will be a little different.  After the performance we will have specials, and then math, where we will focus on wrapping up division.

Tuesday:  This will be our only “normal” day this week.  We will wrap up division in math, read stories and do writing activities geared towards the holidays in reading and writing, and we will talk about ecosystems in science.

Wednesday:  In the morning we will take our Division Test in math.  Our class holiday party will be today 12:30-1:30!  Thank you to all families who are providing a snack, drink or paper product!

ThursdayEarly Release Day!  We will take a math post test in the morning that will NOT go in the gradebook.  This post test is strictly for data purposes and will only be used by Ms. Ford and myself to better serve your kiddos for the rest of the year.  This will also be our Sing Along day in the gym!

FridayEarly Release Day!  Today we will celebrate our wonderful readers who met their reading goals (ALL of our students this nine weeks!!) and we will be watching a movie and munch on some popcorn!  This will be a relaxed day to just enjoy and be happy together.

Happy Sunday, see you Monday!

-Mrs. Gibson

I can’t believe there are only two more weeks until Winter Break!  This year has gone by so quickly, and what a wonderful year it has been!  Thank you for all you do to support your kiddos and our classroom.  We appreciate it!!

Friday was our Kincaid Spelling Bee, and I am so proud of Brandon and Kenton from our class.  They were brave, mature, and represented our class beautifully, and I couldn’t be more proud!!  Way to go boys!!!  

Math: Last week we started Partial Quotient as a division strategy, and we will continue to practice this strategy this week.

Reading: We will continue to look at nonfiction texts together, with some fiction mixed in to review skills from the first nine weeks.  Main idea, supporting details and facts will be our focus.

Writing: We will continue developing our opinion writing this week and sharing our ideas with our friends.  This will be an ongoing process until Winter Break.

ELA: We will continue to look at and fix sentences (fragments, run-ons, and complete sentences) this week.  This is a huge skill the kids need to practice and practice a bunch.

Science:  Our Ecosystem unit is in full swing!  We are enjoying talking about animals and their environments.

Enjoy your families today, and see you tomorrow!
