Wow! What a week that week! We are still coming down off of our Football Win!! In class this week, we have been busy putting our writing skills to work in ELA and Social Studies. In ELA we are learning more about the nonfiction text structure of compare and contrast. We have been looking at Scholastic News articles galore as well as our whole class read aloud of Who Was Neil Armstrong. We are using Neil Armstrong and Chuck Yeager to create our own compare and contrast multi paragraph essay. We have learned the different ways we could format a compare and contrast essay. We could put all the similarities together and then discuss the differences. We could discuss one person first and then the other after. The choice that most of the kids saw was the best for them was to go back and forth between the two. It’s a hybrid method! In math, we are wrapping up our two digit by two digit multiplication unit. Our test is on Tuesday. They have a study guide to use in their Homework Folder. There are always problems in their packet which are no done. They can do those to help study. We will be sending home more things to study with tomorrow.

Tonight’s Homework:

Reading- Read at LEAST 20 minutes

Math- practice math facts!!! This is a must. Complete the multiplication sheet for tomorrow. 

Important Announcement: Student Council is selling Holiday Grams for 25 cents next week during lunch. The kids can send any student or staff a holiday message along with a cute pencil eraser.
