December Highlights

We are learning about place value and two-digit numbers in Math.  The students each made a Place Value Tree (from TpT!) completed with ornaments!

As part of our Christmas Around the World Unit, we had some plum preserves on crackers to get a taste of the plum pudding that is often made in England during the holidays.
The children loved it!
Since evergreens are the symbol of Christmas in England, we made Christmas trees to add to our suitcases.
In Language Arts, we are learning to write Expository paragraphs.  This week, we are learning all about Reindeer.  Above is the book I made as a reference for our writing.  Each student will be bringing home a copy later this week.

Today was the 70th day of School!  Zero the Hero brought us a Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer craft!  I think they turned out great! 
Thank you for stopping by!
