Hello All,

Blue Monday tomorrow! Go Seahawks!!!

Our yearly St. Vincent de Paul canned food drive, led by Student Council, begins tomorrow through December 13th. Please send a can or two (or more) for a worthy cause.

Reading – Same routine. We meet four days a week for approximately 40 minutes, depending on our mass schedule. Your child’s reading group works on letter sounds/high frequency words, fluency and comprehension four days per week.

Stations – STEM bins.

Writing – Daily writing focusing on capitalization, finger spacing and ending marks. Huge progress seen last week! Finger spacing, Capitalization…Oh, my!!

Social Studies – How are people alike and different?

Math – Chapter 2, Unit 4.  Investigate Numbers 0 to 9.

  • Investigate Number 9
  • Discover: Compare Numbers
  • Explore: Concept of 9

P.E. – Every Monday and Wednesday students have P.E.  Please make sure to send your child to school in athletic shoes on Monday and Wednesday! If your child is not wearing athletic shoes they will have to sit out.

Writing – I am so excited to see improvements in sentence composition and penmanship (it’s not perfect, but it’s improving).

Service Project Helper needed. As you all know Emily Rawlings, our former SPH, has moved to Bainbridge Island, which leaves us without a Service Project Leader. Our teddy bear drive should start on the day after Thanksgiving break and I’m hoping to find someone to fill this position soon. Please consider… and send in a teddy bear or two for a good cause! This position also includes cleaning up the school yard each month.

Miss Heidi, our school counselor, will be visiting our classroom every Friday to talk about playground and personal behavior using the Second Step program.

 

Happy Thanksgiving!
