Cardboard Tubes- Please Save Them for Us!

We have started a science project that requires MANY cardboard tubes. Thank you to those of your who have been sending them in. In the next two weeks, please continue to send in cardboard tubes as you finish rolls of wrapping paper, paper towels, or toilet paper.

Here's a look at the planning stages of our marble roller coasters!

Class Objectives for next Week

Winter Reminders

Please be sure to check the forecast each day to determine what type of coat to send with your child. We go to recess at 9:30 in the morning as long as the windchill is at or above 38 degrees. Often times the temperature at that time can be very different than the high for the day.

Please send your child with a coat with his/her name in it. We'd rather get lost coats back to the owners instead of taking them to the lost and found!

Classroom Wishlist

If you'd like to purchase items for our classroom, you can check out our Amazon Wishlist. After talking with students, I've added books they'd like to see in our classroom library as well as other items I know we will need throughout the year.
