I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a relaxing extended weekend. I can't believe that we have a winter wonderland outside, and it is not December yet! The snow has definitely put the students in the Christmas spirit!
I want to thank everyone for attending parent-teacher conferences last week. It was so nice to talk with and get to know everyone better. Thank you for your support and for your commitment to working together to ensure a successful year.
We have a surprise four-day week, and we will certainly be keeping busy...
Language Arts-We will continue learning about verbs. This week we will be focusing on verbs in the past and future tenses. We will also begin unit 5 in our Vocabulary books and write an essay from our prompt of the week.
Science-We are beginning our study of the human body. This week we will learn all about cells!
Spelling-We are on Unit 13 this week, and our test will be on Friday.
*Our field trip to the Museum of Science and Industry is next Tuesday, December 4th. Thank you to all who volunteered to chaperone. I wish that we could take all who volunteered, but unfortunately it is not possible for this trip. Notes were sent home to the parents who will chaperoning the trip. If anything changes with your availability, please let me know. Students should wear their gym uniforms that day, and will need to bring a lunch. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Have a terrific week!
