Sunday, December 10thHappy Snowy Day!
I'm sure the kiddos were all excited about our recent snow storm! Winter is upon us - just in time for the holidays.
With that in mind, PLEASE make sure your child has proper footwear and outdoor wear for our walk to the library. As long as there is no heavy precipitation, we will PLAN on taking our walk through the rail trail to the library on Wednesday for our picnic lunch in the community center and our visit with Mrs. Ballou. Last week I handed out applications to those students who didn't have a library card. If they bring these applications with them on Wednesday, they will get their OWN library card and be able to take out books on that day! How exciting! Just make sure to send in the application with your child!
We are in the process of completing our New Hampshire animal slideshows that we have been designing, in addition to our research papers. I have had a chance to peek at some of the slideshows and they look awesome.
Don't forget to remind your child about our Create Your Own Animal project that is due next Thursday, December 21st. We will be sharing our creations from 1:00 - 2:00 on Thursday. If you are interested in coming to the presentation, please send me an e-mail so I can get a count of parents who will be attending. If this time of year is too busy for you, don't worry. There will be plenty more opportunities for you to join us in the classroom to see your child shine! In 2018, we have government projects as well as New Hampshire projects that we share.
Tomorrow we will discuss our Secret Santas for the holiday party which will be held on Friday, December 22 from 1:00 - 2:00. Once again, you are welcome to join us. You should be receiving information regarding signing up for party items some time this week.
Our unit 3 math test will be this Thursday, December 14th. The students finished the second of three study guides which were sent home on Thursday. I have highlighted areas of concentration for each student. Tomorrow we will finish the third and last of the study guides in preparation for the test. Overall, I think the students have a good handle on fractions, decimals, and conversions from mm to cm and cm to m.
Enjoy your week - I'm looking forward to mine!
