Students who qualified for the 2nd nine weeks A-TEAM field trip will be going to Sulphur Springs to the movies to see Paddington 2.  I will send home a permission slip with your child that needs to be signed in order for them to go with us.  Please send $5.00 with your child to pay for the movie,  Each child will get popcorn to eat during the movie.

This week we will not have a basal reading story.  We will read Christmas stories and work on AR.  

We will write a letter to Santa on Monday.  Before I mail the letters, I will make a copy of the them and send home so that you can see what your child wrote.  

We will make Christmas crafts and start our Christmas countdown chain on Monday.  Students will bring their chain home and take off a link every night before bed.  When they take the last chain off it will be Christmas Eve.  :)

We reviewed past learned skills by playing Jeopardy!  It was fun to watch the students buzz in and answer the questions from the subjects that we have learned so much about.  We will play this game at the end of each 9 weeks.  This is what our game board looked like when we got started.

                              We said so long to our friend Mya. 
                            She is moving.  We will miss her very much!

We love you Mya!
