Pumpkin Book Project
Students have been busy designing and decorating their fairy tale pumpkins in art! In class this week, they will work on publishing a portion of their adaptation that relates to their pumpkin character. Parents are invited to see our pumpkin display on Thursday, October 29th at 2:45. After the presentation, pumpkins will be sent home with students.
Upcoming Out and Abouts
This Wednesday, we will visit Tillamook Forestry Center for a history program about how the forest has changed from natural and human-caused events. Students need to dress appropriately for the weather and it is typically colder and rainier there! Please help your Plover remember to wear long pants, a waterproof jacket and sturdy boots. Students who ordered a school lunch will receive a sack lunch with a sandwich.
1. Out & About Chaperone - We had a cancellation for this week's trip to Tillamook and really need another chaperone to join us on Wednesday from 9:15 - 2:15!
2. Breakfast Donations - Fruit needed for this week (10/30).
3. Mystery Readers - Next available dates are November 3rd and 5th.
Last week was a very short week due to goal setting conferences. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend! I enjoyed meeting with Plover families on Thursday and Friday, and I hope you enjoyed hearing your child's goals and hopes for the year. I will send home copies of the students' goal setting sheets for reading, writing, and math by the end of the week. An extra special THANK YOU to the FGCS Parent Group and all the volunteers who supplied teacher refreshments for the extra long conference days! The treats were delicious and very much appreciated!
We completed a practice Reading Response Letter last week so students would understand the expected format and content when they complete their first homework assignment this week. The letter we wrote together is about a book I read aloud to the class called Dragons Love Tacos. Students' homework letters should be about a book they are reading at home. Please refer to the directions inside your student's composition book (directions can also be found on the Homework Page) to support your child with their reading and writing homework.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns. Parents and students can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also leave a voice message on the class phone or come into the classroom before/after school.
