I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving break! It is hard to believe that we only have 12 days of school until winter break!

Today in class the students were given time to read their nonfiction book. I also helped a few students who still needed to find a nonfiction book for their book talk.

The book talk on the nonfiction book will be on Wednesday, December 11, 2013. This will give us Thursday and Friday to finish them up since many students take the full 3 minutes to give their book talk presentation.

On Monday, December 16 the students will take their finals in Language Arts and Social Studies. On Tuesday, December 17 the students will take their finals in Science and Math. They will take their finals in their testing groups. As a team, we may make some changes to these groups in the next few days but will make the students aware if they are affected.


Read at least 20 minutes tonight to prepare for your nonfiction book talk on Wednesday, December 11.
