Dear Family, November 12, 2019
Brrrrrrr! Hello, winter! I’m sure you’ve heard the Veterans Day parade scheduled for this evening has been cancelled due to weather. I saw beautiful pictures of our very own Bailyn Brooks in the National Peanut Parade! Our Veterans Day program Friday was spectacular. The flag retirement ceremony was very moving. Thank you to Becky McPherson for the use of her flags we held when we sang.
Tomorrow we will have pizza for lunch, courtesy of Katherine’s grandmother, to celebrate Katherine’s birthday. No need to send a lunch.
A special thank you to Laney Winkleblack for organizing our Operation Christ Child shoebox(es) project as assigned to us by the SGA. Mindy Mogren, our Christmas angel, purchased the goodies and we have TWO boxes. Please send money to reimburse Mindy.
We will have our class picture taken a week from today, November 19. These are purchased by PRE-ORDER only. If you want one, please send $10.95. We will wear our nicest school uniforms.
We are collecting cylindrical containers with lids to make drums at music. If you have any to spare, send them all! Coffee cans and oatmeal canisters are great.
Our story this week is Einstein Anderson and the Hurricane Hoax. Vocabulary and spelling words came home Friday. The students are looking forward to the spelling this week as it is a review list. We will also review possessives and contractions. We are trying so hard to remember the word “apostrophe”.
In math, we will learn to identify the perimeter of an object; subtracting a number from 10; making a shape for a given perimeter; and constructing a number line. Continue to work on addition facts and multiplying 10’s and 1’s.
Teaching and Loving Yours,
