November 27 week

Our week back after Thanksgiving break was busy and full of fun activities!
Writing: We watched some videos and did a few activities on prepositions, figurative language, homophones, homographs and parts of speech.  We started Mentor sentences this week, and will continue next week.

Reading:  We are getting closer to the end of "Wonder."  We have had some lively discussions and great conversations about our strategy we worked on, determining and analyzing the author's opinion.

Projects:  The kids have been having fun coming up with songs about ecosystems. They will finish up this week and perform for a few different classes.


  • Parent Teacher Conference is this Friday, December 8th.  If you have not signed up with Sign-Up Genius or contacted me for another time, please do so and I will do my best to accommodate your schedules. 
  • I have been working hard with Fallon Theaters for the movie, "Wonder" but, unfortunately, they cannot get it until January.  So, we will go on a walking field trip to Fallon Theaters when we get back from Christmas break. There will be a $5 fee which includes entry into the movie as well as a small popcorn and drink. Students will then compare the book and the movie. More information to come. 
  • 5th graders have expressed their desire to have a "Secret Santa" gift exchange with classmates.  They will draw names this week and purchase a gift for the other student ($5-$8 range) and bring it wrapped to the class party on December 21st.  Please only have them put who it is "TO" - they will reveal who it is from after it is opened.  If your child is unable to participate, please let me know so we can assure that every students has a gift.
