Parents,
FYI We will have an early lunch on Friday the 21st due to the early release. We will have recess at 11:40 then then eat lunch at 12:00

We only have a few weeks left so please keep up with reminding your children to stay focused for the last few weeks before break. Grades tend to drop before the holiday break,

Please keep up with Zearn and nightly reading goals. Please log minutes on the weekly record sheet.

Eureka Math

Please review the exit ticket packet.

Review the area model and partial products for multiplication and the standard algorithm and area model for division for the test.

ELA Writing
We are working on Literary Essay skills this quarter. We are focusing on characters and their traits and proving our thesis statements with evidence and reasoning from the text.. We are currently typing the essays into Word. The students may use office online and log in with their account.

The 40 Book Reading Challenge is moving quickly to the end of this quarter. Many students are not close to the 20 books needed by the end of the second quarter. Please check in those books and start tracking that reading. Please spend at least 20 minutes each night reading to finish the challenge books throughout the year.

SOCIAL STUDIES
The SE region is moving along. Please continue to review the states and capitals and placement. We will quiz this week Wednesday, December 12th. Please review states, capitals and state placement.. The review sheets were sent home today.

We are currently discussing animals and how they use internal and external structures to adapt to their environments. We are also discussing behavioral and body adaptations that help them survive.
