December

Time sure flies when we're having fun, 2019 is almost done!

December has been a very busy month! We had play practice many times a week and last night the kids finally showed off their hard work. They all did an excellent job! Today we will celebrate with the Christmas movie, Klaus, and a little Christmas cheer before our Christmas break!

During December we continued working on multiplication in math; we will continue with this in the new year. Shortly after we will dive into Division.

In the afternoons we created projects for each of the countries the students visited in the morning for our Christmas Around the World Unit.

For Science and Social Studies we read a couple Scholastic News Articles. When we get back from break we will start a Landforms Unit.

January 2020

MATH
We have finished the introduction chapters of Multiplication and have started the introduction chapters of Division. Students will continue to complete Sweet Treat Multiplication quizzes. Students will complete quizzes up to x12; after they finish x12 they have the option of going up to x15 or switching to division quizzes.

SCIENCE
We have been learning about the world's landforms and natural hazards. We will be doing an experiment to show how erosion works as well as watching a volcano eruption.

SOCIAL STUDIES
We are learning more information about the world's landforms and about different communities in our world.

ART
Students created a silhouette snow-globe of pine trees by using white chalk on black construction paper. The outside of the snow-globe was to be "pulled" to create a white snow-dusting background.

To help cheer on the Packers we had a Packer Party! As a class we created paper cheese heads, the students created Packer Songs to tunes of well-known Christmas songs, and they had a dance party to different songs that were recreated to Packer style. Many of the students brought in yummy treats or juice for the class to snack on during the party.
