November 12, 2010 Dear Parents, We have had a very busy week. We started a writing project about how we each celebrate Thanksgiving at our house. We are publishing this in the computer lab. The finished product will be shared with you at the Author’s Tea in May. We also worked on activities centered around the five senses, nutrition, Native Americans and Pilgrims. We will continue these themes through the month of November. We need your help with an upcoming writing project. Please save the toy ads from the newspaper and send them to school with your child. The ads from Toys R Us, Target, and Kmart are perfect. We need these at school by Tuesday, November 30th. Thanks for your help with this! Please find the attached spelling list. Remember that the test will be on Thursday. Thanks for helping your child with spelling. Together we do make a difference. Next week’s sight vocabulary words are: The vocabulary words can be found on the Unit Two Treasures Overview (green) sent home a few weeks ago. The kids are getting really good at using them in sentences. Try some at home! Respectfully, Reminder: No school November 24-26 due to Thanksgiving break. No school for students on Monday, November 29 due to a teacher Collaboration Day.
