This was also an exciting week because it was the 100th day of school! To celebrate we did special math activities, read 100th day read aloud books, and wrote about what we would be like when we are 100 years old. We had a lot of fun, it was a great day!
Thanks to Claire's mom for being a mystery reader!
Here are some things to ask your child about:
-What do you think you will be like when you are 100 years old?
-What is the story you are going to tell in writer's workshop?
-What was the part of James and the Giant Peach that gave you the best mental image?
-If we can get enough parent volunteers, we are supposed to go to Rivershire on Tuesday, Feb. 12. PLEASE let me know if you can come on the trip. If we are able to go, make sure your child has boots and snow pants at school that day because we will be wearing them on the trip.
-If you have not turned in your Read Across America log, I need them in as soon as possible. The deadline already passed and I will be entering the logs in on the computer next week.
-Please remember to purchase Scholastic Book Order books! I will be submit the order on February 15. This is how I am able to get new books for the classroom library, so I appreciate your purchases (and so do the students!)
-Valentine's Day is February 14th. I sent home an email and a letter with our Valentine's Day plans. Please ask if you have any questions about the day.
