Weekly Newsletter

Week of November 12th


I feel like November just started and here we are approaching the middle of the month already! I'm attempting to spruce up my weekly newsletters via this website, smore.com, and I'm feeling pretty good about things so far. I will be able to send this out via email also, so look for a note to be coming home about that in the next few days. For now, I will just link it or embed to our website, like I have done with my previous documents. Thank you Miss Cleasby for sharing an awesome resource!

As I am sitting here typing this, it is snowing outside! A little early if you ask me, but that's not something I can control...with that said, please make sure your children are dressed appropriately for all the types of weather that we may see in the upcoming months. You never really know in Wisconsin, do you?!

This Week in Room 123

In reading this week, we are starting a new unit! Unit 3 is called Home and Family. Please start the Unit 3 High Frequency (Sight) Words. They are do, like, at, have, you, what, are, can, and too.

In math, we are playing a number guessing game, practicing drawing more number stories, and we will also practice measuring with nonstandard units (unifix cubes, paperclips, books, etc.).

Our theme for the week is Native Americans. We will do a cool project and play a game on the smart board.

Exciting Things!

Last week I posted a new tab on our classroom website, www.missmoldenhauersclass.weebly.com. The new tab is titled "Links", and has tons of resources that I learned about (and they are awesome!) at the conference I attended last week. I've also included the K-1 resources from the elementary school's website (the very first link), where your child can access "Teach Your Monster to Read", among other things they do at school and in Computers with Mrs. Perucco.

Wrap Up

Just a reminder for you that tomorrow, Wednesday, Nov. 13th, is an early release day - the students will be dismissed at 1:20 p.m. Also, there will be no school November 27th, 28th, or 29th for Thanksgiving Break.

That's about all I can think of for now. As usual, please let me know of any questions/concerns/comments you may have!

Your friend,

Miss Moldenhauer
