Christmas Party Information

This year, Room 22 will have our Christmas Party in the morning on Friday, December 18. I have several parents planning the party, and it sounds like the kids are going to have a blast!

I will send out an email tomorrow (Tuesday) with access to Sign Up Genius. There, you'll find supplies we will need for the party. If you can, please sign up for items to donate. Feel free to send them in when you can, but we'll need them before the beginning of the school day on Friday.

Also, Sign Up Genius will have a section to indicate that you would like to volunteer to help with the party. Please sign up as soon as possible if you'd like to join us.

During the afternoon, I'd like to have a "book exchange" for the kids. Please have your child select one of his/her favorite books, wrap a copy of it (it can either be a new copy or a gently loved one), and send it into school before Friday. We'll place all the books under our classroom tree, and students will pick a book to open during the exchange. Then, they'll be able to have a new book to read over break.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Spelling Words for This Week

Students' spelling words are located in their planner. Please feel free to email me if you'd like an electronic copy of your child's words.

Students' spelling homework is due on Friday. Students are to type their spelling words into a Google Doc on Classroom, define each word, and use each word in a sentence.
