This week is the last week before winter break, and there is a lot going on. Wednesday, Dec. 20th is the winter concert rescheduled. Wednesday is also the Midwest map identification quiz in social studies. Thursday there is a quiz in math: this is on division with two digit divisors, division with decimals, and multiplication with decimals.
Friday we have a lot of fun events planned during the half day. If you have not sent your student in with a holiday/greeting card, please do some by Wednesday. We will be using this for a creative art/math activity on Friday. Students will also be creating elaborate snowflakes and poems for our bulletin board. They will also get the chance to participate in snow science with Mrs. Smith. The day will culminate with a pep rally between our boys and girls basketball teams.
This week is the hour of code. Ms. GC our Enrichment teacher shared this website that students can use to explore this great activity.
We are doing special winter related events on Friday, December 22nd. A flyer was sent home on Wednesday, Dec. 6th outlining the activities. ALL students are asked to bring in ONE GREETING CARD. The link below shows what we will be doing with this item. I have also included the flyer that was sent home.
It was nice getting the opportunity to meet with some parents the week of Thanksgiving. If at any time you any parent in the 5th grade would like to meet with the 5th grade team, please contact one of the teachers and we will be happy to set it up.
This is a busy month for most. Between activities during and after the school day students tend to be more tired. Please take the time to help your students plan out their week-looking at their activities, as well as due date for assignments. Thanks in advance for your support and help.
There are two fundraisers currently occurring at school. One to raise money for hurricane relief, and another to collect toys for a toy drive. There will also be a Pajama Day this Friday to raise money for CCMC.
I have been teaching for twelve years, and eleven years in the town of Willington, CT.
