This week day by day:
Monday: Penguin craft day was a hit! I hope you enjoyed the stuffed penguins that came home. Let me know if you would like the directions to make your own at home.
Tuesday: We prepared for our writing celebration by editing, coloring and reading like experts. In math, we practiced our 2-digit addition strategies with a new game called Save Twenty.
Wednesday: We wrapped up our first non-fiction writing unit with our non-fiction writing celebration on Wednesday. Thank you to all who could make it. For those of you who could not, students' writing will be on display in the hallway for a few weeks in January. Please come and check it out!
Students went around the QAE neighborhood to deliver our New Year's cards. Students did a nice job knocking on doors saying hello to folks around the school.
Thursday: Students started writing their own gingerbread fairy tales, changing settings, characters and plots to create their own fractured fairy tales. In math, students played 100-chart Hop Scotch.
Friday: We finished up and shared our fractured fairy tales and celebrated our hard work with hot chocolate and Inside Out.
Thank you to everyone for the thoughtful and generous gifts.
Have a lovely winter break, merry holidays and I will see you all in 2017!
