News for the week of 10/1
Dear Parents of Room 9,
We're in the home stretch before Fall Break! This week is a short week for the children. They get to start their break on Friday.
Thursday is going to be a busy day! We have Art in Action in the morning. We will go to the library, and we will also take our second Math Assessment for Topic 2.
I have heard that some families are taking BIG trips to far away places and exciting places close by! I know that some of us will simply enjoy being at home for two weeks. The children have been working so hard they are ready for a break. Over the break, please have your student read every day. Try to take advantage of the days off to go exploring around our wonderful Bay Area. Make a new Counting Collection or two to have at home and count them, of course! Try as many of the outdoor and indoor activities on my Home Activities list.
I hope everyone has a restful Fall Break. I will see you all when we come back on October 22nd!
