Monday:  Sock it to drugs:  Wear crazy socks

Tuesday:  Put a Cap on Drugs:  Wear a hat day

Wednesday:  Shade out drugs:  Wear sunglasses

Shoe Donations…

Our school is having a shoe drive to collect lightly used shoes.  If your student has grown out of his or her shoes, you can send them in to donate early next week.

Readers Workshop

This week in Reader’s Workshop we have been talking and thinking about the characters in stories.  We talked about character “traits”.  Traits are the characteristics of a character, like the way a character looks, acts, thinks and feels.

Field Trip Wednesday Be Ready to Be Outside

Our field trip to the WACF south of Syracuse is this coming Wednesday, Oct. 19.  Our class will be doing in the morning and we will be back at school in time for lunch.  We will be outside for this trip, so please have your student dress for the weather.

Writers Workshop

We are going to work on a unit in writing where the kids are going to be using LEGOS to help them make their stories.  They will be using Legos to build scenes to help them describe the beginning, middle and end of their made-up stories.  The kids are looking forward to this J


We are finishing up our unit on Place Value.  We will take the test over this topic next week.  Next up:  repeated addition, and then double-digit addition is after that!
