Week 11

This week's story is a realistic fiction story called "Try Your Best." The new vocabulary words are:

Questions of the Week:
Monday - List 5 things that make noise.
Tuesday - List 5 things that are quiet.
Wednesday - List 5 words that rhyme with need.
Thursday - Use the word right in a sentence.
Friday - Tell me 5 things you can do with a pumpkin.

In math we will continue with frames and arrows and time to the half hour. We are continuing to work on money and counting by 2's and 5's.

Spelling seems to be going well. We had 3 testing times last week. Some are already on list 4. I will provide testing times as often as possible. I will be using my intern, aide, and parent volunteers to do this.

Our Halloween Party will be Friday morning. You child may wear a costume but no mask. Face paint is allowed as long as it isn't too gory. Please no accessories like wands or swords. I will be asking some of you to send items for the party. Each child may bring a treat to share if they would like. We will pass them out during party time.

It sounds like the weather is going to change this week. Please have your child dressed appropriately. They may need gloves and hats. They do go out at recess time. They enjoy it more if they are comfortable.

Have a great week and remember that Friday is an Early Release Day for teacher inservice.
