On Wednesday our fifth grade buddies shared some Halloween Safety books they wrote for our class and then helped us with some math word problems. It's hard to believe we are already in November...We only have 13 days of school in November and we have so many things to do! This week we are wrapping up our earth materials unit to get ready for our maps and geography unit. Each year second grade uses Flat Stanley to help us during our map unit. We will begin with reading a few of the Flat Stanley book series along with learning some basic map skills. We will be learning how to address envelopes as well so that we can mail off our Flat Stanley's to family and friends after the holidays. This next week as we prepare, I've sent some extra homework that you will need to help your child complete (we just need you to verify your addresses so we can get our envelopes ready!).
Don't forget that next week we have Monday, November 10th and Tuesday, November 11th off from school. Also coming up soon is our Fall Break the week of November 24th.
Book Orders this month are due on November 13th. For our October order, each student received a free book that was sent home in their homework folders on Friday. This month Scholastic is offering certificates for free books if we place an order over $50 (just in time for the holidays!).
Also, Thursday, November 20th is the annual Thanksgiving dinner. You can purchase tickets at the office to join your child if you would like. Our lunch is from 11:45-12:10pm.
