We are getting closer and closer to our Winter Vacation. We have a lot to accomplish before vacation begins!
I hope all the students brought home their slips about our gift exchange. We will do a cute little story game where the students will pass around a gift. When the story is over, whatever gift they have is the one they get. Therefore, each student needs to bring a gift that is between $3-5 dollars that could be for a boy or a girl. It's a fun game and we want everyone to be a part of the fun!
In Reading this week, we will be taking a break from our reading book and learning about different holiday traditions around the world. We will be learning how other countries celebrate Christmas.
We continue to work on mulitiplication facts in Math. We have begun multiplying with bigger numbers. It is important that everyone continues working on their basic facts so that our math doesn't get harder!
In Social Studies, we will be working on our big maps doing the Northeast and Southeast states. This is a year long project that we will complete when we get near the end of learning about the regions.
In Science this week, we will be working on The Water Cycle as part of our Environmental Issues Instruction unit we are doing on Rain, Run-off, and Rivers.
I will have the students give their impressions of our work this week later on in the week or next week before vacation! Stay tuned...
