Patterns in Math
We started a new unit in math. Patterns will be one part of this unit. On Friday we looked at visual patterns. Below are some of the visual patterns that we created with craft sticks.













Boot Camp is this Friday. Our crew will be at Boot Camp from 9:15 am to 11:15 am. All students will need to bring a lunch from home on Friday. There will be no school lunches that day. Your child can continue to bring in non-perishable food items and collect pledges all week.

No school on October 22nd. This will be a teacher work day.

We Love to Read!
Nothing makes me happier than to see the crew reading and loving it. When the crew first walks into the room in the morning, I have bins of books set out for them to read. Right now we are reading books by our very favorite author, Mo Willems. Mo Willems is the author of the Elephant and Piggie series (our all-time favorite), the Pigeon series, the Knuffle Bunny series and many more. The room is humming with the sound of reading and the crew is so happy and engaged - see the picture below. I just love it.




Sharing Our Writing
Yesterday and today we shared our writing with Ms. Mary Beth's crew. We were able to partner up with several students from her class and share our writing. It was so nice to have such an appreciative audience. We have all worked so hard on our pattern books and loved sharing them with each other.






















Boot Camp
Boot Camp is next Friday, October 5th. It should be a fun day of physical challenges. All students will need to bring a lunch from home that day as there will be no school lunch provided.
