In your class and school:

Hi families!

What a great week of school! Busy but super good! We played a math game called Contig in math helping us with mastered math facts as well as a game board with strategy. If you think you might want to play, let me know and I will send all the pieces for you to play it together! This week we also had the growing up talk. I can't speak to the boys group, but I know the girls group listened attentively, but they did not have many questions. I would just maybe ask your child how things went and if your student has any questions or if questions do come up, how they can get them answered. I will be absent Monday morning for district math training. This is my first time gone and I am nervous how my students will be for a sub. If you could remind them on Monday morning or Sunday night about treating all adults with dignity and respect that would be appreciated!


Don't forget about the FUN FAIR tonight! It is from 5:30-8:30pm and we have a crazy amount of baskets for the silent auction! WE also have games and food!! I will be in the office counting money all night since I am treasurer, but you can wave at me :)


FLU shot clinic is coming to North Bend...see below for information!


PLP's are almost here! October 18-19-20. If you do not remember your day or time, just email me and I can let you know.

I can statements from this week

Reading- I can read expository text. I can determine if a fact is important or just a cool fact. I know that when I do not understand something when I read, that I should reread. When I read a word and do not know it, I can use context clues to help me solve it.

Math- I know that if I have a long expression that first I must do everything in the parenthesis,brackets and braces, then exponents, followed by multiplication and division from left to right and lastly addition and subtraction from left to right. Next is division!!!

Science- I can describe an object using various observation skills. I can tell is something has dissolved. I am working on the difference between a solute and solvent in a given solution. I am starting to use words like dilute and concentrate when talking about a mixture.

From the Library

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to North Bend!

This is a great opportunity to purchase books for your family and friends, as

well as support the North Bend Library. Profits from the book fair allow us

to purchase many new books for our students to check-out and enjoy. The

book fair will be open the week of PLP conferences, with the following

hours:

Monday, Oct. 17.................3:20-4:00 pm

Tuesday, Oct. 18................8:00-8:15 am, 3:20-8:00 pm

Wednesday, Oct. 19...........8:00-8:15 am, 1:20-4:30 pm

Thursday, Oct. 20...............8:00 am-7:30 pm

Students will get to visit the fair briefly during school hours. They will be

allowed to buy something at that time if they have money with them. If you

have specific books you want them to purchase, please enclose a

note so I can make sure they get the correct items.

Want to get a head-start shopping the fair? Can’t make it during the hours

of operation? The book fair is also available online! Purchases will ship

directly to school for your student and still raise money for our library! You

can visit the website below to browse and order books without coming to

the fair in person:
