We will be in need of candy corn assorted varieties "fall mix" for a graphing activity we will be working on soon. I would appreciate anyone who would be able to donate some for our upcoming activity.

Thank You to the parents who have volunteered to bring in an item and or donate their time for our festival on Friday. It is from 10:00-11:30.

REPORT CARDS ARE GOING HOME TUESDAY! PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT AN "N" JUST MEANS THAT YOUR CHILD IS NOT PERFORMING THAT PARTICULAR SKILL CONSISTENTLY. Those are areas that need to be worked on for improvement. Please note that I have been conferencing with parents these past few weeks. Please call me or email me if you would like a conference. I can meet with parents M-Th at 7:30 a.m. I can also meet at 9:15 on Mondays and Wednesdays, and at 2:50 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and some Thursdays. Conference night is October 29th.

We are busy working on Unit 2 in reading. We are continuing to work on answering our weekly essential question along with studying the different genres. Each week we compare fiction to non-fiction text using thinking maps. We are working on singular and plural nouns, short e, short u, and beginning blends. We also will be learning about antonyms and continue to work on statement and questions.


In Math we are busy continuing to reinforce math strategies. We finished learning about "making a ten" strategy using hands on activities that help reinforce these skills. Next week we will work on adding 3 addends. Constent reinforcement of strategies will help them become great problem solvers in Math!

In Social Studies we finished learning about Christopher Columbus this week and will be learning out time lines next week. *Look for a project letter that will be coming home!

In Science we are learning about snakes, bats and owls. The following week we are going to continue to explore various creepy crawly creatures along with exploring "nocturnal" animals.

We are recycling all magazines, newspapers, capri suns, ink cartridges, and cell phones at this time. Please bring in any of these items and we will recycle them for you!
