Well our first five days of the "Ten Days Before Winter Break" was a success! The students loved the surprises!!
- We will be concluding our Mealworm unit this coming up week. Please be sure to send back the permission slip, if you would like your child to bring home their mealworm.
- Spelling lists went home on Thursday for List #15. Our test will be on Thursday, December 17th.
- After break, Mrs. Burck and I will be leading an after school Theater Club. Please check your child's folder for details and a permission slip.
- Brrrrr! The weather is getting colder; please be sure to send your child with outerwear they will be comfortable in. The children go outside for recess everyday (except on the extremely cold days).
Below are some wonderful web based resources (educational games) for your child.

English and Language Arts (ELA)
For reading last week, we finished Meow Means Mischief and we began reading nonfiction texts on penguins. We are focusing on questioning, and continue to explore cause and effect.
In the last week the children learned about oo words, as in book or tool. In Grammar the students continued learning about pronouns.
For writing, the students continued to work on personal narratives; their writing is about memories of special people, places, and objects in their lives.
If you would like your child to bring home their new pet (they even named them), please fill out the permission slip that was in your child's folder last week.
