The kids wrote some amazing riddles about their Halloween costumes. Please check them out in the October Scribble.
Parent Conferences: I sent your invitation home today. If the time does not work for you, please let me know and we can try for a different one. The conferences are Nov. 4, but I can also schedule to meet you on another day if need be. Report cards will be given to you at our conference.
Halloween Party: Please feel free to send in a treat for Friday's party. We will change into our costumes after lunch (no weapons).
Science: The plant unit continues. We will look at different parts of a plant under a microscope (COOL). The kids made diagrams of plants that are amazing (check them out next week at Parent Conferences). The kids also helped conduct an experiment on how water moves through a plant!
Math: We will be starting our next Chapter on Story Problems. This class does pretty well with them, but they can be a real challenge for some of the kids. If one teacher taught story problems and one parent did too, how many kids solved them....we will see.
Reading: Our next story is The Great Ball Game. (Not that you asked, but not my favorite!!!)
