We are dropping like flies…thank you for keeping your little ones home when they are sick.  I will do my best to keep up the cleaning and washing of hands.

This week we tried: to do multi-step word problems, ask “questions” when interviewing important people like Mary Musgrove, Oglethorpe, etc…more to go…onward with possessive nouns, practicing math facts, learning about Creek and Cherokee Native Americans (food, shelter, clothing)…

No school next week for Thanksgiving break. See everyone back on Monday, Dec. 2nd.

FEAST DAY for 2nd GRADE

Our FEAST DAY is quickly approaching…it is all set for TUESDAY, November 19th from 11:47-12:27 (only K, 2, 4 on this day)

Everyone is welcome.  Please join us in the hallway or near the cafeteria doors.  WE will be sitting at tables 11 and 12.  The cost for adults is $4.00.  Prepay if you can, so the line will move smoothly.

******* We are now in a routine of going to the media center to check out books.  Please have your child bring his/her books back to school either on Tuesdays or Wednesdays so they can either get new books or extend their time.  I encourage them to pick out at least one book according to themes we are studying in class such as Cherokee/Creek Native Americans, or animal non-fiction.

Ask your child about sloths.  Yep, sloths.  Ask your child to show you FRECKLE and EPIC.  No home assignments yet…

NO HOMEWORK OR SPELLING NEXT WEEK
