Good News, Bad News
So, I would like to share my very bad news with you. My classroom computer's operating system crashed! I am struggling to find all my missing files (lessons and activities and most dear to my heart....PICTURES of your children learning and interacting with friends and learning partners). Please bare with me, as I recreate all our first grade homework files, reading sheets, and other miscellaneous activities.
My good news is that our school is doing a food drive! This is one of my favorite school-wide events. It is so wonderful to see the students display traits of kindness and generosity and their "take-away" from this experience is heart-warming and contagious as they watch the food items multiple in the lobby. See my heading below for more information.
Five Days of Giving
- canned goods
- personal care items (shampoo, soap, toilet paper)
- Laundry Soap
Thank you for your generous donations! The school is having a friendly classroom competition to see who can collect the most donations each day.
Students continue to work in our geometry unit. Students have been working with decomposing shapes in different ways and altering designs to use more or fewer pieces to cover the same space. They are also seeing relationships between squares and triangles and working with patterns in quilts. We will begin working with 3-D shapes next week.
In Need of a Good Home
Is anyone looking for a new pet? One of our classmates is has the sweetest Guinea Pig, but they need to find a new home for it due to allergies. Here is a short message from the current owners...
Our guinea pig is extremely friendly and wants interaction. He is very social. He likes to go outside but will want to stay right by you sitting on the grass. He will do a "popcorn" jump when he is happy and whistles when he is happy to see you or is receiving his treat! He is gray and white. He does not bite. We just adore him but Mike has developed an allergy and with baby coming, we need to find him a loving home.
We don't want any money for him, we just want him to find another child that will love him. We would include his cage " home" and any bedding/fill and food that we have left at the time.
Sad for us to see him go, as he has been our most loved pet!! Please let me know if you know of anyone! I really don't want to give him to a stranger through Craig's list or newspaper if we don't have to.
Please let me know if you are interested!
