December 2020 Note...

November was a busy month in grade 5. We finished our Egypt unit, our patterns unit in math and our focus on writing topic sentences. Students sculpted, wrapped, then painted their own Egyptian themed sarcophagus and wrote a variety of topic sentences to understand the writers purpose. As we move forward with December online, we will be improving our memorization of multiplication facts, taking a deeper dive into our word decoding strategies and making sure we remember our strategies for taking care of ourselves mentally and emotionally, as well as spreading respect and kindness in our family.  

I hope everyone stays healthy and safe during this time. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, whatever they may look like this year. Spend quality time with your family. I can't wait to see you all in-person again in the New Year.
