This Week

We wrapped up our unit on Habitats this week, culminating with a research assignment and creation of our habitat using recycled materials! Students did a fantastic job, please swing by our blog for pictures!


This Week:

We will learn about holidays celebrated around the world and move into two digit addition (with and without regrouping). In language arts, we are focusing on antonyms. Here are a few important dates for the week:


-Tuesday- Mug Exchange- *optional* send in a new wrapped mug if your child would like to participate!

-Wednesday- Math Science Innovation Center lesson on Matter

-Friday- Jingle Bell Run- dress warmly!


*Bonus Question:: What are 3 synonyms for funny? (note: you can bring your answer in Monday or Tuesday for a punch!)

Bring in a mug!

Your child has probably shared with you that we have partnered with Mrs. Waldenmeier’s class for book buddies this year. We meet once every other week for 30 minutes to buddy read, and occasionally do something seasonal and fun. We will meet with our buddies next Tuesday, and thought it would be fun to have some hot chocolate while they read. I will be providing the cocoa, and we are asking that each child bring in a wrapped mug on or before next Tuesday to participate in a White Elephant exchange (no Christmas themed). You can find these very reasonably at Walmart and Dollar Tree. If you would prefer your child not participate, just let me know and I’ll have a cup ready for them to use. Thanks!
