What a fun time at the Turkey Trot!  The weather was perfect.

This week we will reworking on needs and wants in social studies.  Things we need in order to live versus things we want to make life easier or just for fun.  We continue working on our numbers and becoming stronger readers by using reading strategies and building our sight words.

I will be collecting homework on Friday.  Please be on the lookout for a December homework project that will take a few days to complete.  Read the directions carefully.  We want the children to be creative on their pages and most importantly be able to present their project using a loud, clear voice.  Practice this at home.  Projects will be due Monday, December 17.  I look forward to seeing these every year.  It shows our diversity and provides insight into family traditions.  We may be different in some ways, but we all celebrate with our families and make family traditions.  🙂  Enjoy this project together.

Cubs Night In is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 7

What a lovely Veteran’s Day program!  Thank you to everyone who has served or is serving in our armed forces.

We are currently working hard in our reading groups and learning how to quickly subitize our numbers (recognize a set without counting) which is very important when learning to add.  Being able to UNDERSTAND math is important.  When adding, subtilizing helps children eliminate the need to use their fingers and draw objects to solve problems.   In social studies we are learning about the past and present.  We will continue this by talking about the first Thanksgiving and comparing it to our Thanksgiving today.

Please send in canned goods/dry goods (rice, cereal, boxed mac-n-cheese) by Monday, November 26 to support our Christmas Mother Food Drive. Thank you!

More information will be coming about our Turkey Trot on November 20th.

Have a great week!   Linda Livingston
