A couple things to finish up tonight!
1. The kids ALL have an order form for the book we are putting together. I asked them to please have you fill it out tonight if at all possible. Even if you do not plan to order a book I need you to sign the form and return it. The publishing company needs to see that I have offered the book to you. We have a great start on our rough drafts after today and every kiddo will have a story page and an illustration page in the book. I will be purchasing one for the classroom and one for our school library so if you are unable to buy one for your home, don't panic, mine will be out at conferences so that everyone can see what we are so proud of.
2. The kids ALL have a chapter 3 math review booklet for you to sign. We are FINALLY done with this chapter and will take the test tomorrow! YIPEE!
3. SOME of the kids have a cursive handwriting page to finish up tonight. They are working on names in cursive right now. I have some with EXCELLENT penmanship!
We started our new story, A Symphony of Whales" today and are really anxious to learn all about whales after hearing some of the sounds they make! I have lots of good things up on the website under "story of the week" so if you have some extra time, take a look at some of the things we will be studying!
AR challenge is going strong. Make sure to encourage your kiddo to be reading so we can all qualify for our November Celebration!
Have a great evening!
