Week 13

We are starting a new reading book this week. It is called "Here and There". The first story is "I Am a Butterfly." This isn't a great time to study butterflies. We will do some activities with them now but we will do more in the spring when I order butterfly larvae to watch grow and hatch. You will see the difficulty of reading level increase in this book. The sound this week is /ch/ made by the letters ch and tch. The new vocabulary is:

Questions of the Week
Monday - It is Children's Book Week. What are two of your favorite books?
Tuesday - Tomorrow is Veteran's Day. Do you know a veteran?
Wednesday - Holiday
Thursday - It is Child Safety Month. What can you do to stay safe?
Friday - It is Homemade Bread Day. What is your favorite kind of bread?

In math this week we will continue reviewing time and money, addition facts, and testing our latest information. One of the new topics will be attributes.

We will be doing a Thanksgiving Feast on Nov. 24. We have done this for many years and it is great. Would you rather send money and have me do all the shopping or send the ingredients??? Please write me a note to let me know in the agenda. It would probably be about $3 per student.

Have a great week and enjoy the day off on Wednesday.
