We will hit a high of 50° this week, which will oddly feel warm to your kids. Despite their perceptions, please make sure they leave the house with a coat, gloves, and hat. We had a lot of red hands and rosy cheeks last week. In the future, the recess monitors may not let them go outside unless they borrow a coat from lost and found for an hour. They need to have the appropriate gear now that winter is here.
Last week was a lot of fun! Between the movie day and some fun hands-on activities, everyone enjoyed themselves. Here are some photos of the children while Ms. O led a demonstration of the tax laws the British King enacted upon America before the Revolutionary War.
This week we will focus on the early colonists, some fun STEM activities, and a couple of holiday-themed tasks in language arts and math. If you are planning on your child not being at school Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday because of travel plans, please let me know. If appropriate, we can send work home with your child ahead of time. It also helps us to plan for the number of children that will be in class.
As a reminder, spelling homework is due for everyone tomorrow. Mrs. Hetman's class also has math homework due. Because it is a short week, no new homework will be assigned for the following week. Also, the holiday break is from Thursday through Monday, and students will return on Tuesday, November 29th.
