We wrote more "thankful stories" on our dinner settings. Our kids did a great job on these!
Also this week, we signed out the chrome books and began this year's journey on Raz Kids! Next week, I will glue into the front of your child's agenda the username and password for your child to login at home and read with this valuable tool.
We were unable to use the Library today for a book exchange but will choose new books on Tuesday.
Also remember that our Cooperation Assembly is on Wednesday, October 30th from 9:30 to 10:30 and we're super excited to share a few "acts" with you! Please come if you are able!
Stayed tuned for more information about a Halloween celebration in our class! I will create "treat teams" so that we can take turns bringing in treats for each special occasion this year. A reminder will come home about our food allergies and I'll include some ideas for safe treats.
Next Thursday is a math quiz! We will test our skills on drawing tens and ones blocks for a given number, making tallies, using expanded form (20 + 5), using greater than / less than signs, telling "one more, one less" and marking a number on a number line. A practice sheet came home yesterday along with some suggestions for practice for individual students.
We'll start writing some simple narratives next week! We're going to create a classroom Flat Stanley and he's going to take some adventures and write stories about them! We'll create spooky Halloween narratives too. Please remember that Flat Stanley doesn't have to be a large, fancy project. He can go on several "adventures" throughout the year! Perhaps you're mailing him away somewhere and that will take a longer time but if you still have him at home waiting to be mailed, he can go somewhere with YOU on the weekends! I know there are a few families taking him to their Thanksgiving dinners this weekend. All you need to do is take a few pictures of him doing your activity and email them to me at email@example.com. I'll pop them up on our screen and your child can present the adventure to us! We're looking for nice volume, speaking clearly and describing the adventure as best as he/she can......but this will also be good practise getting up in front of an audience and speaking bravely. If we have jitters with public speaking, this will be a fun way to say good-bye to those jitters!
I wish you all a very safe, happy Thanksgiving weekend with your families!
