December is here! We are planning on finishing 2018 with a fun-filled month including Genius Hour, Star Parties, Spirit Week, and so much more! Of course, we will be filling the next month with lots of learning and growing as well! On Monday, the class will be enjoying our first Star Party to celebrate moments of outstanding character and behavior this year! We will be wearing our PJs to school and enjoying some Hide and Seek at Recess!

Students have been working hard in Math to understand how multiplication of fractions works both visually and as an algorithm. This week, we will continue to explore fraction multiplication and move into fraction division. In Science, students experienced an “explosive” phenomenon with film canister rocket ships, and this week we will use that phenomenon to anchor our exploration of the states of matter. In Writing, the students are almost done with their final narratives to include in our class book, The Moment. This week they will be making their final edits and then working on their illustrations for our book! In Reading, we will finish up Fiction with a Celebration of Learning and then move into Nonfiction!
