Thank you to all of the parents who have turned in their permission slips. I am looking forward to our field trip and so are the students....11 more days!!!
The changes that I have made to the classroom are helping a little bit. We are still chatty. The desk fairy also visited our room this week. The desk fairy left a pumpkin eraser for those students whose desks were clean. The students really don't think it is me, please keep this a secret. Thank you for your help in this matter.
Reading this week: We are finishing up "What Can I Get with a Nickel?" and "My Pet". Tomorrow we will finish Unit 2. Our workbook will go home tomorrow so you can see what we have worked on during our first two units. Please continue to read at home by logging onto the Superkids website. If you have trouble or need me to resend the log-in email please let me know.
