Newsletter November 16

We have been so excited about the Seal Class Musical!  Everyone has their parts and some costume ideas.  If you have any questions regarding your child's costume, please let me know. 
We are also looking for any child sized tool belts that we could borrow.  Thank you!

A copy of your child's report card will be coming home in their folder.  There are no grades for the first quarter.

We are learning about:

  • author's craft and how to use it as a model for our own writing
  • h pals (ch, ph, sh, and th)
  • frames and arrows   
  • retelling                                                                         


Some activities we did:

  • made symmetrical turkeys
  • played Scoot with coins 
  • learned how to connect with the characters in our books
  • began writing across many pages in writer's workshop to make our own books

Thank you in advance for all of the Thanksgiving donations.  I am sure the class will enjoy our "feast".
