Thank You for the Tissues!

Keep 'em coming!

Snacks-- More!

Reminder- please pack lots of snacks for AM and PM snack time. I do sell snacks that a family generously donates to our class for the times when snacks are forgotten. It has, however, turned into 10-15 kids purchasing snack every day. It's too much, and I'd like the kids to save their classroom money for more special things.

THE WEEK IN REVIEW

Math

We began 2 digit addition strategies. Money is around the corner, so please send your money bags. Thank you!

Reader's Workshop

Reading, reading and more reading- guided and independent.

Writer's Workshop

We discussed characteristics of a non-fiction book. We brainstormed topics for the non-fiction book we are writing and then chose one. Ask you student what their topic is!

Science

Storms!
