Peek At The Week

We had another fast and fabulous week!

In Math, we worked on more mirror symmetry using pattern blocks and creating a construction paper shape creation. We also made symmetrical turkeys. It was challenging, but fun! We have finished Unit 2 on shapes and geometry and will begin Unit 3 after we return from Thanksgiving break.

In Writing, we wrote descriptive paragraphs about a special person that we know well and we are thankful for. I modeled this by writing about my husband. They liked this! First, they made a list of things they see, hear, and know about the person before writing. They did a nice job describing their special person to paint a picture with words for the reader.

We had Library on Tuesday and found out that our school Book Fair will be taking place the week after Thanksgiving. We will be attending the Book Fair during our normal scheduled time on Tuesday 11/27 at 9:30 a.m.
You can send in money for your child to buy books.
     The Book Fair will also be open during parent conferences on Monday, Dec. 3rd or you can order books online at 
You will click on Massachusetts, then Burlington, then Memorial Elementary School.

I hope you all have a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving! I am certainly thankful for each student in my class!
