Week 14

This week our story is a play called "Did You See Chip?". This is the first time we have hit the play genre. It will be an interesting read. The phonics sound is /ar/ as in the word bark. The new vocabulary words are:

In math we will be finishing up the graphing chapter and starting a new unit on addition. The kids will learn several strategies that will make addition more user friendly, such as counting on and the commutative property of addition.

Remember next Tuesday is the Thanksgiving Feast. Please send $3/person attending. I am not going to send a special note about this. I need to shop next weekend so please let me know how many will be coming. We'd hate to run short on food. The menu will be posse stew, fruit salad, homemade butter, bread and pumpkin pudding with whipped cream. The children will help prepare the meal. I need parents to help with preparation, set up in the cafeteria, and clean up afterwards. I have 3 parents that have offered. If anyone else can help, please let me know.

This will be a busy week getting costumes ready for the feast and learning about the trip to America on the Mayflower.

Have a great week.
