  • Please submit the $5 payment and field trip form for our trip to the Garfield Park Conservatory, scheduled on November 29th.  Students will  need to bring a lunch from home.
  • I encourage all families to leave an extra pair of pants and socks in their child’s backpack.  With the snow comes a lot of wet pants and feet.  It is nice for students to not have to sit with wet items all day.
  • Please send a healthy snack in for 25 children. We welcome donations of bananas, cuties, apples and grapes. Please send peanut free snacks to accommodate our students with allergies.
  • Would you like to come in and share your family’s holiday tradition? Please send me an email if you are interested in sharing artifacts or foods that are unique to your family during the winter season.


This week we will read The Dot. We will identify story elements such as characters, setting, character development and author’s purpose. We will use the book to make predictions and inferences. Students will continue to identify character traits that support a growth mind set and perseverance.

Sight Words: which, if, their, each, about

Vocabulary Words: swirly, studied, glued, ruler, blank


We will continue working on unit 2 in writing. We are still working on small moment writing, focusing on one moment during an event.   Students will finish up their narrative stories with attention on adding feelings and making sure the reader can answer who, what, where, why and when. At the end of the week, students will publish and submit a piece of writing to turn in as an assessment.


This week, we will begin unit 4 with a focus on measurement.  We will measure with non-standard units of measurement.  We will also begin to compare numbers.


We will discuss family traditions, learning about tooth traditions.   In science we will make a table fiddle and book fiddle and learn more about how vibrations create sound. We will make a drop chamber and practice identifying sounds of various objects.
