Stone Soup PACT
Our next PACT is coming up this Thursday, November 20th from 12:30-1:30. As a class, we will be studying the folktale Stone Soup all week to wrap up our unit on Folk Literature. The theme of the story is that great things happen when we all come together and contribute! To celebrate this theme, we will be coming together to have a Stone Soup Feast alongside a reading lesson. Our class will make a Stone Soup recipe during school, but we would love for you to bring in some other goodies for us to share if you are able! We would like a variety of foods, so please go to http://bit.ly/StoneSoupPACT to sign up to bring something! I look forward to seeing you at our PACT on Thursday!
If you haven't provided a class snack this month, please consider sending something in with your child this week or after Thanksgiving Break! Because of classroom allergies, please make sure no snack items include peanuts or peanut products. Some approved snacks: fruits, vegetables, pretzels, Wheat Thins, Triscuits, Nutri-Grain Bars (Check label), Goldfish, Pre-Popped Popcorn (Check Label).
Next week is Thanksgiving Break, and we will have the entire week off school. Enjoy the time with family and encourage your child to read! We will talk about some reading strategies at our PACT this week that you can begin to put into practice with your child when reading together!
