Did you know?
DECEMBER 
derives its name from the Latin decem which means "tenth," because on the Roman Calendar it was the tenth month. We are always looking for those WWW connections!

DECEMBER is the birth month of some amazing writers!  Emily Dickisnon (poet) was born on December 10th, 1830. Remember her poem "I'm Nobody" that we explored during our grammar study? Rudyard Kipling (author) was born on December 30, 1865. If you have seen the Disney movie, "The Jungle Book," you may already know his wrtitng, as this film was based upon his stories of Mowgli's adventures in "The Jungle Books" published in 1894 and 1895! My favorite of his short stories is called, "The Elephant's Child."
