L-3 News for the Week of
December 19, 2016
This week we will be taking part in special collaborative table debates each day that will be a part of our listening and speaking grade on our report card. Topics for debate will be: Should kids be able to play Pokemon Go?, Is it OK to re-gift a present?, Should stores be open on Thanksgiving?, and What’s better? - Fiction or Non-fiction? We will also be watching holiday performance rehearsals throughout the week in support of our younger buddies.
Chapter 3 of the Autobiography, My Neighborhood, will be due this week on Wednesday, December 21st. Please make sure that all parts are completed including the map.
In math we will continue to explore converting units of measurement and will focus on capacity, mass, and weight. The math RETAKE test for chapter 5 will be on Tuesday.
In social studies we will be taking a closer look at Ancient India and in science we will learn about ice caves and states of matter.
On Friday we will have a GAME DAY where scholars will be allowed to bring their favorite board games from home. No video games please. We will also have several crafts, treats, and our SECRET SANTA exchange. All scholars picked a name to buy a gift for as a secret. The cost of the gift shouldn’t exceed $10.
Party Needs: Plain sugar cookies (3 dozen), frosting, sprinkles, plates, napkins, and drinks. We will also be making “Ugly Sweaters” so if you have any craft supplies at home that can be sent to class for this activity, we would greatly appreciate it.
Daily assignments this week will be noted in our agendas
