Subtraction Strategies

BOOK EXCHANGE




Parents,
     I am excited to announce that our classroom will be holding a holiday book exchange on December 18, 2015!
     As you know, reading is so important and what better way to ring in the holiday season than celebrating with a new book?
     Your child should bring a book that could be for a boy or a girl (gender neutral) wrapped in some fun wrapping paper with a tag telling who the book is FROM. We will be playing a game that will have us passing the books around and around, so we don’t know where they will “land” – maybe with a boy, maybe with a girl. That is why the books need to be gender neutral. Also, we have lots of super readers, so please do not get SUPER, SUPER simple books.
     If you are exchanging a new book, please try to keep the book under $7. If you are exchanging a used book, please make sure it is gently used. Remember, this will be a brand new book to another child! 
     Please let me know if you have any questions or if you need help bringing in a book for the exchange. I am so excited because the children always have a wonderful time!
Happy shopping!

POLAR EXPRESS LITERACY DAY



Dear Parents,
       ALL ABOARD THE POLAR EXPRESS as we begin our Winter Literacy Adventure! 

We are so excited for our special day we have planned for Friday, December 11th. Your child’s day will be filled with an abundance of hands-on learning that will provide a rich, meaningful connection to our literacy selection, The Polar Express. Thank you so much for all of your support. The first grade team is really excited for our learning filled day.

P.S. Great News! Your child may wear his/her pajamas on this magical day!  (Pants and tops only for the pajamas, please.  No night gowns and no slippers for safety reasons.)
                                                                      Thank you!
