I hope that you and your families are doing well. This week the class will learn about possessive nouns, the sound of the /ou – ow/ vowel diphthongs, continue with reading informational (non-fiction) texts, writing based on facts gathered from informational text, subtraction of two digit numbers, and we will study important figures in early Georgia history.
Field Trip Information and Firefighter Homework
We are excited about our first field trip to the Cobb County Fire Safety Village on November 13, 2017. A Cobb County Firefighter spoke to the class this morning about fire safety issues and handed a couple of goodies to the students. It is important that we receive both permission/medical release forms completed and signed by the parents. I received most of them but a few are missing one or both of the forms. If your child has one of these forms in her/his folder, then it probably means that the form sent needs to be completed. Please let me know if you have any questions.
The children have to complete the Firefighter Homework sent home today by Friday. This homework is an important part of the field trip and not completing it may keep your child from participating in some of the activities at the Safety Village.
The children will be provided a sack lunch, but if you want your child to bring her/his own lunch from home, it must be brought to school in a disposable bag or container, as it will be discarded after they eat. Please do not send lunch boxes or food containers that cannot be discarded.
