Thank you all so much for helping make the field trip possible this week- for packing special lunches, finding those class t-shirts and sending back permission slips! Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who were able to join us!! And special thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Higgins for bringing the cooler and Mrs. Meren for thinking to bring picnic blankets! We had a lot of fun- although it was a little spooky to be down in the cave on Halloween! We had a lot of holding hands during the dark (scary) parts of the cave, but I think all-in-all they had a lot of fun.
I also wanted to remind you that THIS Thursday, November 8 is the 2nd grade Veteran's Day choir program in the evening- 6:15 p.m. in the cafeteria.
1) Look for report cards today in the Tuesday (but it's Friday) folder!
2) Book fair is this week!
3) RAZ Kids and Reflex math logins - Please have your kiddos use RAZ Kids and Reflex Math using the login cards I sent home. **Feel free to email me if you've lost the login.
4) At Home Learning opportunities (Encouraged activities for home):
a) math activity will be loaded weekly. I have several weeks loaded now, so they will post automatically once per week (Fridays). Reflex Math is a great website to have your child practice as well.
b) reading log- can be recorded on Google Classroom document. Students who read each week will get a star card reward ticket (they earn for various things in the classroom and can save up to buy prize box items). If Google Classroom log is tricky, please record minutes on the daily behavior calendar and your child can log the minutes on Mondays.
c) spelling- Spelling words are sent home every other Friday. If you want to practice words with your child, I will post some ideas for practice on my website and in google classroom (see Homework section of my website). We also practice daily at school.
