Weekly News ~ December 14th

Dear Families,

The holiday whirlwind of activities is well underway, and we have an exciting week before our winter holiday! We’re still learning, though!

  • Writing – Informational writing
  • Reading – Chris Van Allsburg author’s study, Read aloud: The Tale of Despereaux, point of view
  • Language Arts – Review
  • Math – Multiplication math facts, 2- step problem solving
  • Social Studies – Susan B. Anthony

Our Holiday Party will be from 12:30 – 1:30 on Thursday! On Friday, the child may bring a stuffed animal to school. We’ll have the third grade multiplication challenge that morning, and the holiday sing-a-long in the afternoon.

Holidays are always special times for both relaxation and enrichment. Here are some websites for creative fun:

  • Reading – Chris Van Allsburg author’s study, Read aloud: The Tale of Despereaux, point of view
  • Language Arts – Handwriting
  • Math – Multiplication math facts, 2- step problem solving

  • Social Studies – Susan B. Anthony

Homework:

No HRJ this week or next!
