We are beginning our Non-Fiction writing unit. The students will be writing and researching an animal. You can help support this at home by talking to them about their animal, by checking out books from the library or by helping them do appropriate online research. The research and writing will be completed in class. The students will have books about their animals in the classroom. If you would like to send a book about their animal to class, you may do so and they can use it for their research. If it is a library book, just let Mrs. Flores know when it needs to be returned and we will make sure it gets sent home.
By now you have all received the letter from Mrs. Brady regarding Mrs. Chain's pregnancy. We thank you for your support as we worked to try and find the best laid plans for the next several months. Beginning in January, Mrs. Flores will begin her new schedule with the class. Our Friday teacher, Mr. Downing will be a fantastic addition to our classroom. We will certainly miss Mrs. Chain during her leave but the class will be in good hands during her absence.
Please check the school website for important information each week and sign up for their weekly newsletter. You can go to the quick link page on the left margin. Scroll down to Wednesday envelope weekly and you should be taken to the page. It will be very helpful for you!
Snacks - Please try and pack your child's snack in a separate place outside of your child's lunch. A good place would be in the small zipper pocket of their backpack. It makes getting out snack a lot easier for them.
Spelling City is a great site to help study for spelling! You can check it out at www.spellingcity.com
