What we've been up to...
Your child will need a shoebox for their famous American project after the break. If you could set one aside at home, that would be helpful. They should keep it at home for now.
Social Studies: This week we have continued to learn about exploration. The test for this unit will not be until after the break.
Reading: Remind your child to continue reading over the break. They can turn in their reading calendar after we are back. We are still working on our non-fiction unit.
Math: Students are working on multiplying fractions by fractions, as well as simplifying before multiplying large fractions. Next week we tackle multiplying mixed numbers!
Science: Students will begin our new unit next week on Mixtures and Solutions. This week they continued their adventure in coding. They were also able to explore some purchases we made with grant money.
We will be celebrating on Thursday, December 22nd. We don't do a party at the end of the day because we buy pizza for our classes and need help earlier serving the food. Because of this, we shift our day around so our craft is in the morning instead of the end of the day. Students may bring a small picture of themselves they can use in an ornament they will be making (or they can just decorate that section). For this project, we could use any scraps of Christmas wrapping paper you may have sitting around the house. Feel free to send paper in any time before the 22nd.
As our gift to our students, we will be ordering pizza for them for lunch that day while they watch a movie. They may bring in a can/small bottle of pop to drink with the pizza. If you would like to donate paper plates, napkins, or a bag of baby carrots, please email your child’s homeroom teacher.
We are looking for a few parent volunteers to come in on Thursday to help with the ornament project and serve pizza. Please let me know if you are able to help out. We will be working on the ornament at 10:30 and then serving pizza at 11:30. You can stay until 12:00 or leave earlier if you need to. Let us know if you have any questions! Thank you!
