December 10-  – December 14
The students have been working hard and can’t wait to show you their amazing Winter Program.  Please remember to bring your tickets!  We will also be collecting nonperishable food items to donate to the Together We Cope Food Pantry.  Thank you!
During the month of December, we will be focusing on kindness.  What random acts of kindness do you see your child and others around you doing? Please have your child complete and decorate their gingerbread person and return to school as soon as they can!
All of the kids write in their assignment notebooks daily.  This is done to communicate assignments, reminders, etc. with you.  Please go over your child’s assignment notebook and sign it each day.  If you notice any materials not coming home, please notify me right away.  We complete the assignment notebooks together and pack up materials together.  If your child needs further assistance, I will arrange for them to check out with me each day.
Looking for fun, extra practice for your child at home?  In class, the students have been introduced to Raz Kids (username mbussema0), XtraMath, Freckle, Prodigy, and  Your child has password information for xtramath and in their assignment notebook and should know how to log on to the rest.  Links are on my web page also!
 A brief description of what we will cover this week is below.
ELA--- This week we will continue reading the novel The Family Under the Bridge. We will also focus on verbs and poetry writing.  On Monday students will work on their book report on their nonfiction book. 
There will be a spelling test on Friday.
Students should be reading at home each night.  Your child should keep track on their reading log for Book It, a reading program through Pizza Hut.  Every day that your child reads 20 minutes, they should color in the picture for that day.  If they complete reading for the whole month, they will earn a free personal pan pizza.  I encourage all students to participate.
Math--- We began division last week.  This week we will focus on finding the number of equal groups, using bar models, relating subtraction and division, using arrays, and relating multiplication and division.  There will be a quiz on Thursday.
Students should study math facts each night.  We have started making multiplication flash cards.  Each day students will take a 1-minute multiplication test.  All students took the tests on multiplying by 1. As they pass one, they will move on to the next.  They will take multiplication tests in this order:  1, 2, 5, 10, 4, 11, 9, 3, 6, 7, 8, 12.  Please check in with your child to see where they are. 
Science-  This week we will continue learning about weather and climate.  We will wrap up this unit this week and the test will be at the end of this week or beginning of next week.  Your child will be bringing home a completed study guide and will write in their assignment notebook to let you know the day of the test.
