Our class won a pizza party for best decorated door during Red Ribbon Week. We will be celebrating this Wednesday the 8th at noon. They will only get one piece of pizza, so you may want to pack a little something to go with their slice of pizza.
Your child’s November home project is on a family tree, with or without pictures, that goes back to their great grandparents. Your child will choose a family member, dead or alive, to present a small biography on them. These are fun reports because it helps us get to know your child and their family heritage.
If your child did not get their creative writing done for the October home project, please let me know if you would like your child to finish this in class as one of their works during work cycle.
Have a fabulous weekend!
I sent home a folder with your child’s art on it. Their art work can be printed on the items in the folder. They can be given as gifts or something you would like to have with your child’s art on it. All orders must be placed no later than November 13th. All the proceeds from the art will be donated to our classroom.
Let me know if you have questions.
We are celebrating Day of the Dead on Tuesday. October 31st-November 2nd. Please help us by signing up for an item on the donation sheet here. We will be making gingerbread dead men, tissue paper flowers, and sugar skulls. Thank you for helping support our classroom.

Today some students received a purple folder. Inside you will find a reading passage and sight words. The reading passages should be read daily. There is a place at the bottom that you can keep record of total words read in 1 minute and number of mistakes. If your child doesn’t like to be timed, that is not important to do. Your child will read this passage Monday -Thursday and return the folder by Friday for a new passage. I will send them out every Monday. The sight words are extra reading material to help your child master sight word reading.
These are the students that should have received the purple folders: Aislin, Carson, Emma, Jaxon, Elijah, Ashland, Emily, Teyla, Avery, Kyrah, Tenlie, Eden, Dallas, Micah, Sianne, Alex, Landon, Ryley
Please let me know if you have any questions.
We start P.E. and Music on Monday, September 11. Please have your child wear or bring sneakers (shoes for movement) every Monday.
If you are interested in celebrating your child’s birthday, please click here, or the ‘Celebration of Life’ tab is at the top of the blog. Type your child’s name in the month of their birthday (or half birthday) and enter the day you would like to celebrate. We usually have the celebration at 2:00, unless you indicate a time that better accommodates your schedule.
We will have monthly home projects that will need to be done at home. They will present to the class when they finish. I will present the Brown Bag project to the class on Monday, so they understand how it works and what is expected. They will have the rest of the month to bring it in. The monthly projects for the year can be reviewed at the top of the blog under the tab ‘Home Projects.’ I will also send a paper home on Monday with the list of home projects.
We have finished the Great Lessons: Birth of the Universe, Timeline of Life, Needs of Man, etc. I have been assessing math skills and will be conducting a thorough reading assessment next week. We will be in full swing work cycle next week.
Thank you for all your support!
