December break is actually here and it is a good time to reflect on all of the fun and interesting activities we have had so far in Room 5.
In math we have covered place value though the millions, multi-digit multiplication and are finishing up our division unit! Area and perimeter were covered and the students were able to use what they learned to create their own playground designs for our school!
The research projects about people who overcame obstacles or challenges in their lives were amazing and I hope a great learning experience for the students. Hopefully this connected to our ideas about changing mindset as well.
This current unit of study in Language Arts has us using the “power of words” in our writing and in our projects and speeches.
Our field trip to the San Fernando Mission was great and the students had a great time. It was so nice to see them listen and ask pertinent questions as they visited a real mission.
I hope the holiday break leaves us all refreshed and excited to return January 9th! There is a lot more to look forward to in the months to come!
