Our class will be having our Winter Carnival on December 20th. All parents are invited to visit our class anytime from 10-12 to celebrate some fun with us.
*Note: With the Closed Campus Policy in effect, if you plan on visiting our classroom, please let me know. Your name must be on the list at the office before you can be admitted.
CARNIVAL STORE REQUESTS
We need your help to make our Winter Carnival successful and brings lots of joy to the students.
Our Carnival Store needs chips, cookies, candies, sodas, juice, cupcakes, popcorn, etc…so the students can “purchase” with their tickets.
Any donation you can contribute to the Carnival Store will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
WINTER BREAK ASSIGNMENTS
Although we are taking a break from school, don’t take a break from learning. Please read for 30 minutes and 20 minutes of i-Ready and/or Lexia/Reading Plus homework everyday.
Amidst the fun and celebrations, please don’t forget to read and complete the math and reading online assignments. Thank you!
THANK YOU PARENTS!
As we approach the halfway point of our 5th grade year, I would like to express my appreciation to all parents for encouraging and supporting your child and our class through these 5 months. We cannot be successful without the support of our parents. Please continue to work together and be supportive of your child’s learning achievement and well-being.
This year, during “Art Appreciation” time each week, the students learn about lines, shapes, colors, techniques, perspectives, and other concepts. We also explore art styles from art masters and then create our own art using those styles. Studies have shown that involvement in the arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skills. Art learning can also improve motivation, concentration, confidence, and teamwork. Finally, drawing, painting, and creating arts can be a relaxing, non-pressure activity that refreshes the mind. Continuing with our art schedule, in January, we will be using watercolor.
Please purchase an inexpensive set of water-colors for your child at stores like Walmart, Michael’s, Office Depot, or online at Amazon.
Our Class Carnival will be on December 20. Our Carnival Store needs chips, cookies, candies, sodas, juice, cupcakes, popcorn, etc…so the students can “purchase” with their tickets. Any donation you can contribute to the Carnival Store will be greatly appreciated. More information to come. Thank you!
SECRET SANTA CONTINUES
Our Class' "Secret Santa" activity continues this week to promote the “Season of Giving” in December. On the last day (December 20), please allow your child to bring a fun gift $5 or less to give to your special person that he/she picked to give this season. :)
Thank you so much for your support.
