A1 Turtles Update
Week 13 - November 13th
We continue to learn about the first Thanksgiving, Native Americans, and about Traditions. The kids enjoyed our gallery walk of their Sorting Leaf project. There are yellow sticky notes in their Friday folder from our gallery walk. These are compliments from their classmates. We are starting our Weather science unit next week. We have started learning about subtraction and how addition can help us solve. Please continue to encourage your kids to practice their math facts. They can make flash cards, play games with numbers or enjoy a math app. I have included a new link about our current math topic. If you have a holiday tradition that you would like to share with the class, please let me know. Thank you so much for all of your support in and out of the classroom. Have a fantastic week!
Scholastic Book Orders
This week's homework will include; spelling practice, handwriting for Pp and Qq, Topic 26 math, and a science activity called On Your Mark, Get Set, BLOW! Please have them bring their blue homework bag with their completed homework on Friday each week. It is very important to help your child learn how to be responsible with their homework and be on time.
This week students will interview their parents to see what type of severe/interesting weather they have experienced. Please encourage your child to practice before they present. Their day is written on their folder. As I talked about on Back to School night, the kids need to be ready to present on their assigned day. If they are sick, they can present when they return. This is a great opportunity for them to gain confidence speaking in front of their peers.
*Nov. 20th - Grandparent's day 10:45-11:55
*Nov. 23-27th - Thanksgiving break (no school)
Lots of germs!
We have a lot of germs circulating around school right now. I was given another blue notice today for Strep. I apologize for not sending that out with the kids. I will send it on Monday. If kids have a sore throat and/or fever, I encourage you to have them checked out. I am more than happy to catch kids up when they return from being sick. Please help us all to stay healthy!
