With our short week coming up I only have a few updates. First of all, thank you to the families who donated to our Rover Food Drive. As a school we collected SO many food items for families in the community who are in need. Also, thank you for returning the coupon book/orders. As a school many teachers, including myself, are thankful to be getting items that were ruined in the flood replaced.
Next week is a two day week, we will only have school Monday and Tuesday. I have lots of fun Thanksgiving themed activities planned, I can't wait! Because of the short week, we are going to have P.E. and Music class on MONDAY instead of Tuesday. Please be aware of this change if your child wears different shoes on P.E. days. On Tuesday, Mrs. Hardesty (our Librarian) will take all of the first grade students into the Ram Arena to watch a Thanksgiving themed movie during our specials time. We will NOT be having our normal library class so the students will not be able to return and check out a new book. Please look for progress reports coming home on Monday 11/24. Sign and return them the following day!
Here are a few pictures of the students who finished their "History of the United States"
Timeline. If the students did not finish they will have a chance to work on it on Monday next week!
Reading: We will NOT be having "Walk to Read" this week. We will be reading an informational text about turkeys. The kids will make a turkey with the main idea on it's body and details on the turkey's feathers.
Math: Next week we will do some turkey themed graphing! We will also be reviewing fact families.
Writing: We will be learning the parts of a friendly letter, and will practice writing letters to our loved ones.
Grammar: Next week our focus will be contractions.
**We will be doing various art projects next week and a reader's theater to retell the story of the first Thanksgiving!
**January 30th will be the Rover Art Walk. Each class will be responsible for creating a chair to auction off. If you are able to get any type of rocking chair from Goodwill, or another inexpensive place please let me know! Also, if you have any ideas for how we could decorate the chair or are willing to help out please email me! I would love to have a few parents help with this!
**On Monday progress reports will be sent home.
I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
