To keep us moving forward, each student in 4th and 5th grade is expected to complete three books before Christmas Break is over (January 3). We will have lots of reading time until then and many may finish the three minimum required before we even go on break. (Note: our 7th and 8th grader will be reading 3 books of their choosing, out of solidarity with their classmates participating in the Battle.)
When we're not singing...we're reading! I know of at LEAST one student who wishes she could perfect the art of reading and singing simultaneously, but alas, she can't yet do it. We're looking forward to seeing you all at our Christmas program.
I, myself, hope to be reading a stack of books myself over the Christmas break. I hope you all have time to visit the library and/or get a pile of books of your own from Santa!
