Dec 5-9

So much to do with so little time!

This week we will attempt Winter MAP Testing...again! We hope to test on Tues, Wed, and Thurs. Make sure your child goes to bed on time, eats a good breakfast, and comes to school ready to test their best!

The Blue Reading Group will read a biography about the artist Picasso. We will review nonfiction elements and we will add main idea and supporting details to the CAFE Menu. We will also create an art piece like Picasso which should be fun and interesting!!!

The Red Reading Group will continue reading The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. We will add point-of-view to the CAFE Menu. The students are also responsible for an activity packet including story elements, character traits, vocabulary and more!

During writing, we will focus on IDEA, one of the six traits of writing. I have several activities planned to jumpstart the students creativity!

When we are able to squeeze MIND Time in this week, we will continue working on the cultural Christmas presentations with the hopes of creating powerpoint presentations.

Please don't forget the activities for the 12 Days of Christmas at Cravens. A green paper was sent home last week detailing the events!

Look for a letter this week detailing the 3rd grade Christmas party plan. Don't forget to start sending drinks and snacks for our party as well!

As always, thank you for all you do to make your student successful at Cravens Elementary School!!!
