A fiction story is due Sunday, December 15. Homework on weekdays is to work on writing for 15 minutes. Your student should be finished with their draft and revising by making changes. One change could be to add more talking, more action or more visual details. Ask your student to read their story to you and you can give some ideas.
Science: We read about how light moves and helps use see.
Social Studies: We used this time to make a holiday decoration in our class. We’ll be learning Mexican traditions this December as a way to undertand a culture that is different than ours.
Character Strength: We are learning about kindness this week.
