We made sure to write our friend, Mr. Tallbird some thank you cards because we learned so much from him!
We also wrote persuasive writing from the viewpoint of a turkey. In this writing we had to convince the farmer not to eat us for Thanksgiving lunch. We came up with some pretty clever reasons!
I genuinely hope that each of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know that I have so much to be
thankful for. Don’t forget that school will only be in session on Monday and Tuesday next week.
You, your, up, on, upon, into
Our test will not be until Friday, November 30th and I would LOVE to see every student get 100%.
If my class gets 100% overall we will celebrate with extra computer lab time.
We will be having a Thanksgiving feast in our classroom on Tuesday. You are welcome to join us but I MUST know by Monday if you plan to eat a school lunch.
We line up for lunch at 11:30 and we will be finished by 12:00.
When we return from Thanksgiving break we will start an economics unit that will go until Christmas break. Your children will earn tickets for being at school on time, having a clean area, displaying good character, etc. Students will also be asked to “pay fines” for not putting his/her name on their paper, being off task, not completing work, etc. Students will have various opportunities to spend their tickets through the month of December but we will also hold a classroom store just before break. This is a fantastic unit that our first graders enjoy every year!
Ask your child about… Mr. Tallbird’s visit, life on the Plymouth Plantation, adding with doubles, Little House in the Big Woods, Rocket Math, and Squanto.
