Important News

Hope everyone had a great Christmas break! Thank you to the parents that gave a donation towards the class seating! I have ordered two additional beanbag chairs for the classroom!

Starting this Friday, the class will receive ELA homework packets on Fridays. They will have until Thursday to return. As for math homework, it will be sent home daily throughout the week and must be returned the next day.

ELA Homework:

Reading: Cold Read

English: Title of Books sheet

Vocabulary: Study them nightly. (Sheet is in the daily folder.)

With the cold weather, we will have recess inside for majority of the winter. As one of the activities, I would like to do some art projects. Unfortunately, a pack of watercolor paint runs several dollars so me buying a class set is expensive. Therefore, I am asking parents to buy a set of watercolor paint. I am also sending home a note soon with selected movies we will watch during recess time. Most of the movies are rated PG so parental consent is necessary.

Secret Santa

I need each child to bring a large gift bag, which will stand on its own and is clearly labeled with his/her name, to school by Friday, December 8. The students will be playing “Secret Santa” during the week of December 11-15. I am asking each child to bring 25 small “somethings” to pass out to the class. Items do not have to be expensive just little stocking stuffers such as pencils, snacks, small toys, or individually wrapped candy. Be creative! On your child's assigned day, he/she will secretly place his/her items in the bags of classmates before the bells rings that morning. The students will get to see all their gifts at the Christmas party on Friday, December 15 at 1:00. For those who wish to send separate items for the boys and girls, we have 13 girls and 12 boys. Please send the items on the assigned day listed. Refer back to the letter.
