Weekly Wrap Up

We have been trying to stay busy in our classroom! It's hard with Christmas so near!
We've been learning about flat, two-dimensional shapes in math. Students were challenged to use smaller shapes to form bigger shapes. They also modeled shapes from the environment using smaller shapes, like making a road sign from squares and triangles.

We used 2-D shapes to make Santas as well!

We have done several crafts to go along with books we've read or skills we are working on. I am hoping to send home all of these together this week.
In Social Studies, we are learning how children celebrate Christmas around the world. Each student has a suitcase (folder), passport, travel map, and brochures from each country. We are enjoying learning about different traditions and seeing the ways that the traditions are similar to ours. They will bring home their suitcase with all their crafts.

We have some fun things planned for these last few days of school before break, including doing some activities with other classes in the building. Grade cards will come home on Wednesday, so I have been working on assessments with each student. In addition to the crafts that come home, a bag of their written assessments for handwriting, writing, and math will be coming home with your student.

Have a great day!
