Note to Parents

 

This is our last full week before the three-day Thanksgiving break, and it is going to be a busy one! We will finish our math unit on telling time, culminating with a unit test on Friday. Please practice telling time on both analog and digital clocks with your child, focusing on full and half hours.

In language arts, we will read stories about Native Americans, the first Thanksgiving and a visit to Grandma’s house. We also will talk about main ideas and draw pictures to show the main ideas of our library books before returning them on Thursday. We will not take out new books until after the break.

On Friday, we will join with Ms. Carter’s class for a Thanksgiving Feast, eating some of the same foods the Pilgrims and their guests ate at the first Thanksgiving. We welcome students’ family members to attend and, if they would like, to share a dish from their traditional Thanksgiving or harvest celebration. Please let me know if you plan to attend and/or if you would like to share something for the feast.
