The time seems to be flying by so quickly! December is almost here! We are finishing the 15th week of school and we have made such great progress. Let's keep helping all children continue to learn through this busy holiday season. Make sure that your child continues to read every night/day or do the Lexia computer program for 20 minutes a day. Remember that doing Lexia will count on the monthly reading charts for the BOOK-IT reading program.
-November Book Report is due
tomorrow: Nov. 30th.
JUST A REMINDER:
Christmas Book Orders are due tomorrow if you are planning on sending the order to school. If you plan to order books online, you can do that through Saturday evening(Dec.1st) at scholastic.com/bookclubs
You can order from the Nov. or Dec. book order forms. If you are ordering gifts, please send me an email and I won't send the books home with your child when they come in. I'll keep them in my closet until you can arrange a time to pick them up. Remember my special teacher code at scholastic is: HLCVM
I just wanted to send out a reminder that our classroom is a nut free zone. We have three children in our class with nut allergies. I've noticed that several children have been bringing things with nuts or peanut butter for snack time. Please make sure that this doesn't happen any more. I'd hate to have any child not get to eat their snack because it has nuts in it, but I can't have any children getting sick from being around the nuts either. So I ask for your help and cooperation in helping our classroom stay nut free.
Guess what is coming soon on Dec. 19th?
Ms. Staley's Annual Polar Express Party!!!
We need more parent volunteers to help us that day or this party doesn't work well. Tara Ashby, Crew's mom, is leading this fun party for us but needs more parent volunteers or people to bring things. If you are willing to help, please e-mail Tara @ firstname.lastname@example.org
We are all so excited for this fun day. Here are some tips to help make the day run smoothly. I'll send out a reminder email a few days before the party too.
- Your child can wear pajamas or a robe, but make sure they are appropriate for the weather. They can be worn over regular clothing if they wish.
- The children can bring slippers to change into once they get to class and the party starts. Make sure they have good shoes to wear coming to school and going home at the end of the day.
- If your child wants to bring a pillow and a blanket, please put it in a large garbage bag with their name on it. They can also bring a stuffed animal friend but it needs to be small enough to fit in their backpack or the garbage bag. They can also bring treats to eat while watching the movie and snuggling with their animal in the afternoon.
- Please make sure your child brings a small gift, $5.00 and under, for the gift exchange. It's best if you can send something that would work for either a girl or a boy.
One last reminder, when Christmas is over and school hasn't started back yet, please take the time to help your child practice their Math 36 club facts. There are so many kids that are so close to passing off addition, but need just a little extra practice. Let's make 2019 a great year by having everyone pass off their addition and subtraction math facts.
