It is the most wonderful time of the year! 

In Reading we are in Part I of the novel Echo by Pam Munoz Ryan. The students are very interested in the book and are connecting so well. Our in class discussions on the novel are so good. We are learning about figurative language and vocabulary as well.  

In Social Studies we are finishing up our unit on Ancient Egypt, the unit test is on 12/4 & 12/5. The students have done so well throughout the unit that I know that will continue on the test as well. After we finish up with Egypt we are moving on to Mesopotamia. 

In Language Arts we are working on Echo as well. We have weekly journal reflections on the reading, vocabulary activities and assessments and we are working on constructed responses about each and every character. In the New Year we will start a new writing unit. 

December is one of the busiest times of year. We have choir practice to get ready for the Christmas concert, Advent buddy projects, a fun Christmas STREAM activity in the Makerspace with Mrs. Makar and of course our Christmas party. :) 

I want to wish each and every one of my students and their families a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year!
