Homework This week...
We will be taking a break from STAR Homework and spelling tests this week and next. We will start back up in January. This week's homework will be to write a short Christmas story, similar to the Halloween story they wrote in October. There will be some story starters in their Monday folder to help get them started. Have them plan a story that has a beginning, middle and an end. We suggest that they start with a "sloppy copy" or a rough draft, edit their story and then turn in a final copy. Keep it simple and enjoy this change in pace. We always have fun hearing everyone's story!
Performance & Field Trip Details
Achieve's Christmas performance will be this Thursday, December 15 at Paradise Alliance Church (CMA). We are asking that you bring your child to the church between 6:45-6:50 pm. The show will start at 7 pm.
Our class will be singing at Atria Senior Living on Wednesday, December 21. We could still use a few more parent drivers (thank you to the ones who have already signed up). We will meet at 10:30 am and be back around 12:15. Please email Jessica if you can drive. A permission slip will be in the Monday Folder. Please sign and return it this week.
We will continue to practice double addition regrouping this week and next. We have been so impressed with their math skills! They are doing great!
We use our chromebooks and ipads several times a day. Unfortunately, some headphones aren't making it through the wear and tear. Even our "loaners" aren't working well. Check with your child to see if they are in need of another set of headphones. Maybe you have an extra set of earbuds or headphones around your house you could send in for your child. Or maybe this might be a good Christmas gift idea?!?
