Favorite Book Character Day!
We have successfully raised $122.93 to buy our animal. My friend's company has also graciously agreed to match our donation amount so we will be giving $245.86 to buy both a sheep and a pig! Thank you for all your help in this season of giving! You can check out our project on www.heifer.org!
Would you like to share about a tradition that your family has? We would love to hear from you! This could include photos, videos, clothing worn, food samples/photos, instruments/music, and much more! Email me if you would like to share and help us to learn about the diverse classroom we are a part of! Anyone is welcome!

Star of the Week:
What Are We Up To In Room 115?
We will continue working with elapsed time this week. This is always a tricky unit for students. I encourage you to work with your students at home, asking them about how many minutes things took or how much time in between activities they do, etc. The more they think about it in their real life, the better the understanding of time will be!
**We will test over some of our fractions and elapsed time on Friday. Look for a study guide to come home on Wednesday!
