Please check your students' folder on Monday for a note pertaining to the Book Exchange we will be doing during our Holiday Party.
Military Care Package
If you would like to donate items towards the Miltary Care Package, please send in to school by this Friday, December 10th. Thanks for supporting the troops!
Holiday Party Volunteers
If you would like to volunteer to help out with the Holiday party and did not sign up at Open House please contact Mrs. Granzow or I. If you signed up at Open House she will contact you or perhaps already has! The party will take place on Thursday, December 16th from 9-10am.
We had a meeting last week to discuss the next phase of Construction which affects our classroom :) We will be moving to the old Bitty Bees area (newly remodeled) where Miss Nemitz (Kindergarten) currently resides. Miss Cottingham's classroom will also be in the same area but separated by a temporary wall. We will be moving over Christmas break and therefore when the students come back from Christmas break we will be in our TEMPORARY room down by the old Bitty Bees. I will give the students a quick tour either this week or next so they know what to expect after break. We should be in this room until about(and I use this term very loosely) Mid-February. Again, I will let you know specifics when that time arises!
Target Pledge Time to Read With a Child
I came across a neat opportunity to boost literacy for children who are not as fortunate as ours. If you go to: Target.com/reading you can help out! Just click on the Pledge book and pledge to read to a child in your life. With each pledge, Target will donate a book to a child in need. I did this weekend and it takes about 30 seconds!
Unit 4 Math Test
We will FINALLY be taking our Unit 4 Test this Thursday. We have extended lessons due to LOTS of NEW information which allowed more practice towards adding 2 digit numbers especially. Good Luck!
Reading Unit 2 Test
Monday thru Thursday, we will be taking our Unit 2 Reading Test. This is an important tool not only for me, but for parents, to grasp how their student is doing with Reading skills. These tests are the only tests not read to the students, so it is a true test of reading the context and comprehending the directions. Good Luck!
As with any blog, please contact me with any questions or comments you may have pertaining to anything I may mention:)
Have a wonderful week!
Happy Half Birthday to Becca on Saturday!
