The Week of December 7, 2020

 "I heard a bird sing

In the dark of December

A magical thing

And sweet to remember.

'We are nearer to Spring

Than we were in September,'

I heard a bird sing

In the dark of December."

-   Oliver Herford, I Heard a Bird Sing

The upcoming week of school brings more opportunities for learning and fun!  Our works will include one more opinion writing followup before we take a post-test writing scrimmage on Friday.  The growth shown across the board in writing skills is something we should all celebrate!  I look forward to continuing our writing lessons next term, with a new focus on narratives!

Be sure to be studying the vocabulary and spelling (word study) lists each day to prepare for Wednesday’s vocabulary activity and spelling quiz.  There are only two more Wednesdays left in the term, so that means two more opportunities to “show what you know” in vocabulary and spelling!  

On a similar note, be sure you are reviewing your ItsLearning gradebook to note any missing works.  These should be completed by the last day before winter break.  Feel free to message me with any questions.

Enjoy your weekend,
