Update 12.11.15

2015 is zooming by!  Only a week to go before winter break.  As the weather gets colder, please make sure your child is adequately dressed- snow pants, boots, gloves, hats, scarves and coats.  It gets cold outside at recess and some students only have a sweater to wear outside and as it gets colder, this will not be enough!  I also recommend that students keep a change of clothes in their locker in case one set gets muddy or wet from snow/rain.  If students aren’t dressed appropriately, they will not be able to go outside for recess and will need to remain in the office.

Our class is participating in Secret Snowman this year.  We have each drawn names and have gotten a list of likes and dislikes for our “snowman”.  Our gift exchange will be on Thursday December 17.  Please bring in your $10-$15 gift by then.  You may bring them in early and give them to Ms. Stefans or Ms Bonicontro to hold until the 17th.

After weeks of researching, we have officially started our dinosaur research paper!  Students were given a rubric (on Google Docs) to follow along and guide them in writing their paper.  The first rough draft is due Monday December, 14th.  Students have had two class periods to work on it already so there shouldn’t be too much to do over the weekend.
