    Dear Parents,


    The kids did an amazing job sketching their Georgia O’Keefe flowers and then painting them with liquid water colors.  They also wrote haiku poems to go with the art.  Those will be ready for display by the end of the week.


    If you haven’t yet signed up for your child’s report card conference, please use this link to get to my sign-up genius


    You can also find this link on my classroom website.  This week your child will be writing self-assessments for math, reading and writing to share with you at the conference.  Please remember to bring your child with you.  I look forward to meeting with you.


    I sent an email last Friday asking you to gather coins (pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters) for your child to count for this week’s homework.  Please check your child’s work on each attempt to help him/her count correctly.  Thanks!


    We are also work on telling time.  The kids are pretty confident with time to the hour and half hour.  We’ve worked on time to the quarter hour and beginning to look at every five minutes.  Any extra support you can offer at home is greatly appreciated.  It’s best if your child can work on an analogue clock to be able to SEE how many minutes after the hour and how many before the next hour.


    Dates to keep in mind:

    • 11/18-11/22, Parent Conferences, Minimum Days
    • Fri., 11/22, Awards assembly, 9:15
    • Fri., 11/22, Spirit day, favorite character day
    • 11/25-11/29, Thanksgiving Break


    Have a great week!
