November 4, 2013
Here we are already into the month of November. With the colder weather comes jackets, boots, hats, snowpants, mittens, etc. Please make sure you label all of your child’s clothing so as not to get mixed up with other children’s belongings.
Conferences will be held on Nov. 18 and 19. Please call the office to schedule your appointment. Please keep in mind these conferences are only 10 minutes long. If you feel you need a longer appointment we can always schedule a conference at another time. You will receive your child’s report card at this time as well.
We enjoyed our M & M math last week. We sorted, added and graphed our results based on the color of the M & M’s. Thank you to the parents that sent in M & M’s for this activity.
In November we will begin our unit on Pilgrims and Native Americans. We will be making butter, doing a cranberry taste test as part of a math lesson, and learn how to write with quill pens along with many other activities for this unit.
Last week in reading we began to write our very first book called “My Transportation Book”. Our reading unit has been all about transportation and the students have been working on this book to share with the class. We also continue to write in our journals. Your child’s October journal will be sent home within the next week so that you can see how your child is progressing in writing.
We have also started library over the last few weeks. Your child has the option of keeping his/her library book at school or they can bring it home. If they bring the book home please help them keep it in a safe place so as not to lose the book. Please have your child return the book every Thursday so he/she can take another book out of our school library.
