October is just flying by!  Thank you for sending in t-shirt and field trip money.  We are really looking forward to our zoo trip next week, Thursday, October 26.  Look for a note in their folder next Tuesday with Zoo information.  Fingers crossed for great weather.

We have been taking our PALS test, which is a phonological/reading test.  Everyone is doing a great job.  Start looking for reading books in their folders beginning in November.

Speaking of November, if you have not already done so, please sign-up for a conference.  I sent a link out this afternoon.   Please contact me if you need it again.

Here are some pictures of us using our Promethean board.  Without the PTA’s help, we would not have these awesome tools to teach with and learn from in our classroom.  If you have not already done so, please think about joining!

We are having a ton of fun exploring patterns.  We are making AB, AABB, ABC, AAB, ABB, growing patterns and more.  I love the way they are extending their knowledge of patterns by creating “fancy” designs.  In addition to creating patterns, we are focusing on what makes a pattern and comparing/contrasting them.  Here area few samples of our pretzel patterns.

In Science we are learning about seasonal changes over time focusing on fall changes.  We are keeping track of the leaves on the tree outside our classroom. It was fun discovering that the leaves are green because they are making food for the trees.  The red in the leaves is the leftover food.  We look forward to tracking our tree over time and will bring our science discovery home in the spring.

Thank you for sending in the money for our class t-shirts.  We are placing our order on Monday, so please send in your money by then if you are purchasing.  Have a wonderful weekend!
