Room 27 Newsletter

This past week...

This past week has been great in our classroom! We learned all about syllables, identifying the main idea in stories, and completed an informative writing on why we have laws. In math, we finished unit 1 on graphing and data and continue to have number talks all week.

In science, our plants have started to grow too! We will keep measuring their growth for the next few weeks.

The class started library, music, and art as well!

Collecting Carnival Basket Donations

We are still collecting carnival basket donations for our arts and crafts basket that our class will be contributing! We are looking for items such as:

Markers, pens, colored pencils, crayons, craft paint,construction paper, paint brushes, stamping kits, jewelry kit, loom bracelet kit, or stickers, gift cards to Hobby Lobby or Michaels.

Remind App

I started using Remind App so I can communicate with you more quickly and conveniently through text message. This is a secure and safe way for me to quickly send you reminders about our classroom via text message or email if texting is not available to you. If you would like to receive reminder texts from me:

- text @lancon to the number 81010
