The holiday break is here! Thank you for all that you do! Thank you for the donations to our class party. It was a huge success. The kids enjoyed it! Today marks the end of the 2nd quarter.

I did not assign any homework over break. But, I encourage all students to log onto our class websites to continue working on fifth grade standards. I did assign a small project for students to complete that connects to the Great Depression. They have more than enough time to complete it. No late projects will be accepted.

When we return, we will be working on line plots in math, reading and comprehending literature, informational writing, inherited traits and learned behaviors, along with the New Deal.
