December book orders went home with your First Grader last Tuesday. In order to make sure you get orders back before the break, they will be due this FRIDAY, December 4th. As always you may order online, OR send your order form with payment to school in your First Grader's Red Folder. ***If you would like the books to remain a "secret" for gift reasons, let me know and I can set them aside for you.**

T'is the Season for Giving
It's a great time of year to be thankful for the blessings we each have, but to also remember that not everyone has the same blessings as us. First Grade classrooms will be collecting donations for the Methodist Children's Home Society. This home has been serving the community for 98 years and gives a safe haven for abused and neglected children. A note went home with your student before Thanksgiving Break. We will be collecting donations until Friday, December 11th. I will be dropping these items off as well as taking pictures so that students can see the full vision of our project of giving. Thanks for participating in this kids to kids giving project! (Note is attached below if you need another!)
Coming Soon:Flashlight Friday!
Just wanted to give a heads up as you are out doing holiday shopping for your First Graders. Starting in January, we will be having "Flashlight Friday" every Friday during Readers' Workshop time :) We will dim the lights and read with our own flashlights! Keep your eyes open for deals on a flashlight that your student can bring to school on Fridays to spice up our Readers' Workshop. Also, if you would like to donate any extra flashlights to the classroom for backups when students forget I am happy to accept those! More info to come in January...(try to keep this a secret from your First Grader until then please!)
