Ms. Welker's Class
Thank you so much for those that already signed up for party items. We are still in need of a few things in order to make our class party merry and bright! As of today, we do not have anyone signed up for the nuggets. If you would like to help provide the main dish (nuggets or something else such as pizza) please let me know ASAP! If not, we can ask students to bring a sack lunch for the party instead.
Students will be making stockings in class to use for the party. We are asking that each child brings wrapped candy or small "treasure item" toys for this activity. During the party, each student will pass out their items in the stockings for a fun surprise at the holiday party. We have 22 students in our class. Please do not include candy items that have nuts or peanut butter due to food allergies.
Here are some examples for stocking items: candy canes, lollipops, Hershey kisses, skittles, starburst, peppermints, pencils, stickers, mini erasers, little bubbles, etc.

In writing, we are continuing to work on our stories. We are sharing them with a partner and giving each other feedback (what we like, what changes could be made). We will be editing and revising our stories to produce a completed book!
In Phonics, we will learn about nouns and how we make words plural by adding an "s" at the end.
