Dress Up Day on Thursday!

This Thursday, November 26, it’s DRESS UP DAY!

Theme: Dress up as any teacher (yikes!)
Cost: 50 pesos (please give money to classroom teacher)
Reason: to raise money for environmental projects around the school

I encourage all students to be daring and dress up as a teacher to raise money for a good cause! Should be an interesting day…

Weekend Buzz

This weekend, ask your child about:

* the My Zoo presentation on Tuesday (What animals did you see? What was the message from the My Zoo volunteers? Why were these animals being discussed?)
* regrouping in addition (What does it mean to regroup? How can we “prove” our thinking?); try making your own spinner to practice multi-digit addition
* the invention he/she is studying about (Why did you choose it? What information will you find out? How is the invention important to us? What might it be like in the future?)
* the way we brainstromed our interview questions (Time to start asking our relatives!)
* the guest reader we had this week in the CMC
* what’s happening in our read-aloud: Charlotte’s Web

Enjoy a few photos from the Blast to the Past Rotations and have a great weekend!
