Good afternoon everyone. I know they always speak about no school November. I am starting to believe this is a no school January with another potential snow storm tomorrow:( I asked students to be prepared to complete more of their spelling lesson if we are home from school.

In our morning circle, we have been discussing the merits of Martin Luther King Jr as Civil rights Day approaches. the students know many of the facts of his life, but struggle with some of the concepts. Tonight I asked them to go home and discuss with an adult the meaning of Civil Rights. I hope that becomes a topic of conversation in your home.

The students also brought home two flyers today. One is about an author who will be visiting us on January 31. Students will be able to order books at a reduced rate. The other flyer is about an eight week after school program that has the students coding in Scratch to create video game modules. There was some interest.

We continued to read in our book The Cay. In math, we started our unit assessment. we will complete it tomorrow. Ms. Tabet came to class to introduce the students to a new program SoundTrap.

Wow! I actually remembered two days in a row. It looks as if Mother Nature is going to hit us hard tomorrow. I did everything in my power to ensure that ALL students had the materials needed to complete assignments due Friday. If your child doesn't have their materials and they were in school today, it is all on them. Any missing assignment from students who were present today will be considered late.

Happy New Year! One of my resolutions is to try to stay on top of posting to my blog. In the course of a day, good intentions go to the wayside. As we embark on the new year, we are starting a new reading unit and finishing a math unit. In reading, we will be reading survival genre literature. We are completing a unit on volume in math and will be having a test Friday or Monday.
