Upper Grades: Dec 10 -14

Greetings, Upper Grades parents!

It was a [somewhat] quiet week as we delved into the stories and images of Ancient Egypt.  We continue this week. The children are making beautiful maps and drawings.

I sent you an Assignment Tracker.  All the children should have a hard copy of it now, because I gave them out today to the ones who said they still needed it.

Please take a look at it, and pay close attention to the fact that they have a book report due this Thursday.  

Also please support your child in making sure they have the 12’s times tables memorized.  At the beginning of the school year I found that they did not all have them “nailed.” I told them then that I wanted them to really have them memorized by the December break.  I will be checking their memorization this week. As you know, they need these math facts solid and “in their bones” so they can thrive with more advanced math as it gets more challenging in the coming years.

I hope that all of you have a lovely refreshing break, and we’ll see you back in January!


Ki Carol
