Peek At The Week

We had a great week before our official winter break!

In Math, we worked on solving different types of story problems called problems with unknown change. They are a little challenging, but the students were catching on well. We also learned a new game called Cover Up.
The students played with a partner and decided upon a certain number of chips to use. Next, they would hide some chips and their partner had to guess how many chips were hidden based on what they could see. It was a fun game!

In Social Studies, we learned about different holidays around the world. We read about several holidays and discussed which holidays we celebrate.

In Writing, we wrote a December Senses poem. We brainstormed the five senses and then the students used them to complete the poem. They were sent home in their backpack folders.

We had a great PJ day before vacation and did some fun holiday activities.

We also made a special gift for all of our parents! I hope you like it!

Have a wonderful holiday and vacation with your family!
I can’t believe it is almost 2013!
