The kids have had a great week back. It feels like our vacation was ages ago. My outdoor decorations remind me that it really wasn't. I won't be able to put them away until they thaw. I seriously think that our outdoor train will be out until spring. It is a permanent part of a snow mound!
Early Release Days: Please note that the kids will be dismissed at 12:30 on Thursday AND Friday.
Class Count: We are back at my lucky number - 13. Couper has moved to another school. Please feel free to send in treats for the 13 hungry students. Our snack cabinet is looking sad.
Chapter Book: We are almost done reading about Danger Joe. The kids are anxious to see how the story ends.
Reading: This is a review week. We will be completing our first reading book this week! There is homework again this week - due Friday. As you read together at home, please ask your child if the selection is fiction or nonfiction and to explain why.
Spelling: Again, it is a review week. Our test will still be on Friday and the homework is due on Friday as well.
Math: We will continue to work on story problems, estimating and adding double digits.
Science: We will hopefully get to work on our animal unit. Warning: the kids are in love with sugar gliders and many would like to adopt some for pets!
Box Tops: We are still collecting Box Tops. Please feel free to send them in at anytime.
Have a wonderful weekend. Maybe we will see you at the movies. The Good Dinosaur is playing this weekend.
