• Happy Tuesday!  I hope everyone had a great Veterans Day.  I took the afternoon off to see Reese sing!

    In reading we are focusing on theme in our story.  It's a fun story about a girl who is sorry, not sorry.  Ask you kiddo!

    In math we are working on factors, multiples, prime and composite numbers, as well as division!  The kids will learn the traditional algorithm (the way we learned) and partial quotients.  Both work well!

    We are creating our own Rube Goldberg machines in class this week.  The kids are having a blast and being super creative!  We will video the machines in action!

    In social studies, we are creating our own totem pole spirit animals.  They chose the animal today and will start drawing their rough draft tomorrow.  Due to time constraints, I told them to look at home tonight if they need to see a picture of their animal!

    This Friday is Community Market!  Helping you out to get rid of things before the holidays!  And maybe bring some new things home...

    Next Friday is our Thanksgiving Feast.  We do this between the four classes.  The kids will visit each room and learn a bit about Thanksgiving traditions.  We need donations from you to help out!  I could also use a couple volunteers to help serve the goods!  Please see the Signup link:

    Our new book!  I read this story each year and am excited to share it with the kids again this year.  We will also watch the movie at the end to compare the movie and the book!

    We will begin the year reading Wonder as our class read aloud.  It is such a fantastic book if you haven't read it yet!  I am super excited for the kids to get the opportunity to compare the movie with the book (the book is WAY better...)
