I heard that Movie Night was a blast. We have a great PTO to put on these special community events. I'm glad so many of you were able to come.
We will celebrate Halloween on Thursday instead of Friday because Friday (God willing), we will be on a field trip. The room parents told me they had secured all the vegetable donations. Thank you! Please send them in on Thursday.
We are working on place value. The specific standards I am addressing include understanding that each digit in a three digit number represents a particular value of hundreds, tens, and ones. Within that, children need to be able to compare large numbers using <, >, = symbols, and they also need to be able to represent numbers in base 10 blocks, in numerical form, and in expanded form, too. Something fun to do to support your child in this work is to make up a "Mystery Number." For example, "my number has a five in the tens place, a four in the hundreds place, and the digit in the ones place is the number of sides on a triangle."
We had an exciting meeting with our buddies making positive/negative jack o'lanterns. Hope you enjoyed the finished product!
Emma and Ella did a fine job presenting their Service Learning Project at the assembly. Please send in any new or gently used blankets to help the homeless this winter. There will be a clearly marked box in front of the office for this purpose.
I will send a reminder on Thursday about the (knock on wood) field trip. I feel like I'm jinxing it by even mentioning it!
Hope you survive the build up to Friday! The excitement in palpable in our classroom.
