Donuts with Dad
Next Friday morning is the Donuts with Dad event at our school. Kids are invited to bring their Dad (or important male in their life) to join them that morning before school for free donuts and drinks. It will be from 7:45-8:15 Friday, March 20.
We have been doing some review in math. We have gone over 2-digit addition and subtraction. Soon we will also do some review of place value, like hundreds, tens and ones.
Book Order Forms
Scholastic book order forms are being sent home. If you would like to order books, the book orders are due on Mon. March 23. Make checks payable to “Syracuse Elementary”. Or it’s very easy to order and pay online:
Class activation code: GPP2T
Your purchases help me earn points to buy more books for our classroom.
All About Books
We are almost finished with our All-About books this week (finally!). We will share them with each other next week in a “Silent Celebration”. The kids did a great job on their books, writing about a wide variety of topics. Nice job, everyone!
Friendly Letter Writing
Friendly letter writing will be coming up next. This coming week, we will start practicing writing friendly letters. Looking ahead: I will asking the students to get an address for someone they can send a friendly letter to (someone they don’t live with). It is always cool when students send letters to friends and relatives, especially when they can send them to someone far away. We will write those letters before Spring Break.
