Week of November 18

Good afternoon! I hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine in a nice warm place 🙂

REMINDERS:

  • Parent-Teacher Conferences from last week are rescheduled for Monday, November 18. The times are the same. If you missed your conference, please make sure to come.
  • The canned food drive is over on Tuesday. This gives us 2 more days to give to those who are in need.
  • Please bundle students up warm. If they own boots, please send them to school. They can change into them for recess.

The class had a substitute last Thursday morning and when I came at lunch time I was very proud of them! The sub gave me a raving review, and even asked to be their guest teacher again. It was the highlight of my week.

Have a great rest of your Sunday!

There are a lot of pictures this week! The students practically begged me to take them 🙂

Week of November 11th

Good morning! It’s Saturday and looks like a great weekend.

Reminders:

  • Brrrrr! It’s getting cold! Please bundle up, because we will be going outside until it dips lower than 20 degrees.
  • We collected 26 cans for the canned food drive! I know we can collect more!
  • Parent-Teacher conferences will continue on Tuesday and Thursday.

I did not get to take a ton of pictures this week, we have been so busy. This week I have been impressed at how eager everyone has been learning. This is really a great class and they keep me happy daily. <3

Week of November 4th

Good afternoon! I hope everyone is enjoying their fall Saturday. We went to the apple orchard early this morning and Bin rode his first train. He was extra excited!

Reminders:

  • No school Tuesday. It’s election day! Please take the time to vote in Dearborn. We teach our kids to do their civic duty, and watching their parents do it is the best way to ingrain it in them.
  • I asked students to keep any Halloween candy at home, and I only saw 1 pack of sour patch candies! Thank you for helping out and making sure their treats stay home and only snacks are sent.
  • Parent-Teacher conferences start this week. Students have reminders and sign up sheets for parents who have not signed up. It is imperative that I meet with every child’s parent.
  • It is getting brrrrrrrr outside. Please make sure your child is equipped for the cold weather.

I have A LOT of pictures this week, so enjoy!

Week of October 28th

Good morning!

I hope everyone is enjoying the wet windy weather this morning 🙂 Bin and I went on a coffee day and he enjoyed the wind blowing in his hair. He is super excited for meeting my students on Wednesday’s Boo Bash!

Reminders/Updates:

  • Wednesday is Boo Bash after school
  • Monday we have a math assessment
  • Friday is our library check out time (we missed one due to picture day, so students are excited)
  • We are getting more homework for multiplication, division, and handwriting practice. It should take students only a few extra minutes, I am not trying to overwhelm them but help them improve their skills.
We are beginning a unit on multiplication and division and student need to know these properties. If they have time at home, give them the opportunity to practice them with different multiplication equations.
