Weekly Wrap Up

Please try to set aside time from 2:45-3:15 on November 20 for Curl Up and Read time here at school. Join your child in the classroom for a special half hour of reading together. Let them share some of their favorite classroom reads with you, and see a little of what they’re learning in action! Siblings from other classes are welcome to join us, as long as you send a note to t!heir teacher. Also, if you want your child to leave our room and go to a sibling’s room, please send a note.

Earlier in the year I told the kids that after Halloween they could bring in electronics for Fun Friday so long as it’s okay with their parents. I wanted them to first spend some time playing with another human, and getting to know each other.  :)   So, now we’re past Halloween, they can have electronics. If you want your child to bring something in, the only thing I ask is that each week they bring a note from a parent saying it’s okay. Without a note, I won’t let them use it. All electronics have to stay either in their locker or in a container in the classroom closet until Fun Friday time. Don’t worry if you don’t want your child to bring in electronics, there are many classroom games and activities they can enjoy.

Don’t forget, Scholastic book orders, both online and paper forms are due Friday, Nov. 13. Please don’t send cash, check only or order online. Thanks!

All students are encouraged to wear red, white, and blue on Wednesday for Veteran’s Day!

Here's what we're learning about next week:

  • Reader’s Workshop: Review of skills taught in unit 1 and assessment of unit 1 skills
  • Writer’s Workshop: Finish small moment stories
  • Math: Multiplying by 0, 1, 10, and multiples of 10
  • Social Studies: Northeast Woodland Native Americans

Please remember that my door is always open if you have any questions or concerns. I also check email frequently. Together we are partners in your child’s education!
