We had a great time learning about spiders last week. Ask your child if a spider is an insect or not and why.

We also were lucky enough to have a pizza party from Domino's last week thanks to your generosity! It was a lot of fun. Along with that Domino's came in and showed the kids how pizza was made. They each got a chance to feel some dough and feel the cornmeal they use to help keep the dough from sticking. Then we were treated to another slice of pizza!

What a great week we had!

We had a great time studying pumpkins last week. It was even more fun to go to the pumpkin patch and pick out a pumpkin. A big thank you to the PTA for buying them. We were able to do many investigations with them in class the next day. I was going to post some pictures, but I managed to leave my SD card reader at school. Watch for them, I promise I will post them.

Red Ribbon Week is this week. Tuesday is Crazy Socks/Shoes day. Wednesday is Crazy Hair/Mismatched Clothes. Thursday is Pajama Day (please make sure your child will still be able to participate in school activities). Friday is School Colors Day and a Drug Dog assembly. It should be a great week.

Our Pizza Party from Domino's is tomorrow afternoon. Thank you for all of your support! We are also lucky enough to watch a presentation from Domino's about how pizzas are made on Thursday. I feel really lucky to have such great parents.

Monday is our Halloween Party. I will let you know details when I get them.

SEP Week

I had a great time visiting with all of you this past week. I enjoyed letting you see what your child has been working so hard on the past month or so. We truly work hard each day.

This week our theme is families. Last week each child was sent home with a set of leaves and a note. They need to be sent back to school on or before Thursday October 13. Your child will need it to complete the assignment for the day.

Also, I neglected to send home the spelling homework packet on Friday, I will send it home on Monday.

Jumpstart's Read for the Record

Today our class participated in Jumpstart's Read for the Record.
 This year's book was "llama, llama red pajama" by Anna Dwedney. It was fun to be part of such a large undertaking. I really enjoyed sharing this book with the kids. It is so lyrical, and each kid can easily connect with baby llama. Think about adding this book to your home library.

Get your copy here.

Donor's Choose

I just found out that my iPod touch grant qualifies for matching donations from Century Link. Check it out!

Donor's Choose

That means for every dollar donated Century Link will match it. It would be great to have one (or more) in our classroom.

SEP Week

Last week we had a great week exploring and learning about apples. We will be wrapping up our apple activities this week.

Don't forget your child's SEP appointment this week. I am looking forward to meeting with you and your child. School dismisses each day at 2:30 INCLUDING Wednesday.
