Weekly Overview December 13, 2010

Happy Holidays!!!!

Our Assembly will be this Thursday at 9:30 and 1:30.  Both shows are the same, please come when you can!!!!  Your children should wear something festive-white, green, red, blue–maybe boys wear black or dark pants with a white or other collared shirt…girls wear something fancy or fun that you two decide!!!  We will be sitting on the stage floor for one of the numbers, so just be aware of that if your child is wearing a dress or skirt!!!  They all look wonderful!!  I hope you have been practicing the songs at home!!!  They all have had the words for several weeks!!  Thanks for your help.  Be sure to ask your child about the performances that they are in (one is with our buddies!!!)

We will have a holiday party after the second performance on Thursday.  Please bring in snacks, drinks, etc.  We will also have a small party in the afternoon on Friday (we can eat any of the extra treats left over.)

We are doing lots of art and murals for the Gallery Walk Thursday morning!!!!  Hope you can come and enjoy!!

Language Arts:  Your child took a test this morning on our story/concepts last week.  We are starting to talk and do many activities around extended response-ask your child about this.  I will make a copy of a rubric this week for you to look at with your child over break.  I am also going to send home an extra reading practice book for your child to do over break-again, I will not collect this but it will be very helpful for your child to complete the book and for you to review with them.  Thanks.

Homework:  Your child will have their Journeys book and the Lesson 10 Focus Wall sheet with them.

Homework:  Please have them review the spelling words and target words.  Have them read the main selection Jose! Born to Dance and have them practice intonation.  The book must come back to school tomorrow!!!

Tuesday and Wednesday evening homework:  Your child should answer the question:  How does this story relate to me?   Do I have a connection?  One paragraph written Tuesday.    For Wednesday, in one paragraph your child should answer – How is this story different from the story we read last week?  Both paragraphs are due Thursday morning.  An illustration is extra credit.

Math:  Lessons 4.10 and 4.11.  Then on Wednesday we will have our Unit 4 math Test.  Your child will have their Math Journal 1 tomorrow for practice and review for the test on Wednesday.

No math homework Wednesday.  Math facts worksheet for Thursday homework, due Friday.

Science and Social Studies:  We have extra assembly practice and holiday art projects, we will get to these 2 subjects if we have extra time this week.

Art:  Lots going on!!!

Have a wonderful holiday break and we’ll see you next year!!!  Wow!!

As always, thank you for all your help!!!
