Things to Know

**Friday we decorated bags for our Penny Holiday Exchange. So, your child may start bringing in gifts for their classmates on Monday. Bags will be sent home on Thursday after the party, so please have your items to school by Thursday.

**Our class earned a reward and so we will be having Show and Tell on Monday. Please help your child pick an appropriate item to bring to share with the class.

**The second grade teachers have decided to spend December reviewing the +1's - +5's addition facts. I will be retesting students this Friday (12/19) on any tests they have not earned a 90 on yet. Your child's pizza should show the pepperonis they have earned so far. We will be practicing at school but please keep practicing at home also! We will resume new facts with the +6's in January. Remember the final date is in March so there is still time to learn all of the facts!

**Our Library Day is on Monday. Please have your children return their books each Monday (or before!) so that they can get new books each week!

7 Habits Corner

This month we will be synergizing in small groups to work on plays. The students will make backdrops and will present their plays to the class. It should be a lot of fun!
