Our Thanksgiving lunch will be on Wednesday, 11/15, at 11:10 in the cafeteria. Students will be eating in the classroom at the usual time on Tuesday and Thursday.
We have finished explorers in social studies. We have begun working on force and motion in science, and will be learning about simple machines, as well. We had wonderful experiences with simple machines in our last science lab. In math we finished multiplicative comparison, and began learning divisibility rules. Ask your child about the factor posters they are creating with partners. We will be learning more about prime and composite numbers, followed by multi-digit multiplication. In reading, we will be learning about text structure. In writing we have begun research on weather events for informational writing. We didn't have spelling this week, but we will next week.
Student leadership has organized a canned food collection drive called Thanks For Giving. Students are encouraged to bring in cans that will placed in a box next to each classroom. There is a competition to see which class can collect the most.
Our room moms would like to share the following information:
Hello Mrs. Stewart's and Mrs. Sattelmeier’s Class!
The Holiday Shoppe Committee is busy putting together a wonderful event for our children on December 9th. In addition to the Holiday Shoppe, this year they are having a raffle for parents with some wonderful gift baskets and other goodies, a craft/vendor fair, entertainment, breakfast and some fun activities for the kids.
The Committee is asking for each grade level to put together two themed baskets for the raffle. All the money made from this event will go towards doing many wonderful things for our children and our school. This year our class theme is Movie Night!! We are asking for donations of family friendly DVDs, candy, microwave popcorn, or cash donations towards movie theatre gift cards. Please send all these items in by December 1st so that the other room moms and I can get the baskets completed by December 5th. Please remember the baskets must not contain any perishables or alcohol of any kind. I really appreciate your support and look forward to seeing all of you at this year's Addison Holiday Shoppe. Please contact Jennifer (firstname.lastname@example.org, 404-668-7875) or Nancy (email@example.com, 770-712-0537) with any questions.
