All families of Willard East students are invited to read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with us! Each family will receive ONE copy of the book by Roald Dahl as part of our school-wide book club. We encourage each family to read the book over the next two months. We have already started reading the book in our class, too! I picked it to read aloud before I knew it was going to be our school-wide book. We are LOVING it and the students are begging for us to read more. If you read the book at home, make sure your student it writes it on a reading log too!!!
JANUARY READING CONTEST
We are one week into our January reading contest! Don’t forget that the student that reads the most books during the month (and turns in logs) will earn the lunch of his or her choice in the classroom!
We are running low on glue sticks. We are great on bottled glue but have gone through the majority of our glue sticks for the year. YIKES!
PAJAMA DAY ON WEDNESDAY
We just keep earning Tiger Tokens!!! We were pretty close to earning a celebration before break and we quickly earned the remaining needed tokens this week. The class voted and decided on a PJ / stuffed animal day. We will celebrate on WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 14th. Please make sure that your child is dressed warmly and has shoes with them.
NO SCHOOL / SUBSTITUTE
Just a reminder, school will not be in session for students on Monday, January 19th in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!
I will be in a meeting at Central Office on Tuesday, January 20th so our class will have a substitute this day. Please call the office if you need anything.
This week we… started a two week author study on Jan Brett! We have enjoyed several of her books and will continue with more next week! We also practiced counting by 2s and 5s to build our addition fluency, and polished up our preposition skills!
