Quarter 3, Week ? Day 97

This week:

Homework: 

Last week's homework will be due on Monday and a new homework packet will be given on Monday too. 

There will not be a spelling test for last week's words. 

Feb. 17th-Monday

Our class will distribute Valentine Day cards and/or small treats on Monday, Feb. 17th. There won't be a class list of names distributed as it is easier and much more faster to pass out cards that are "nameless." There is a total of 23 students in our class.


Feb 18th- Tuesday

Picture day-Your child should have brought a slip home from their mailbox if you would like to purchase photos. If not, that means they did not grab their mail before leaving school. They're responsible for checking their mailbox every day before dismissal. 

Enterprise Day- 23 products are due. Remember this is a low cost item or free items. This is all about creativity and innovation.

Valentine's Day

I hope everyone enjoyed their snow days...again! 

Many parents have emailed me about Valentines day, and I apologize for not getting this information out sooner. I think I enjoyed the snow days too much. 

Please send in 23 blank Valentines with your child's name on it. I think it will be so much easier to pass them out and much quicker too. If we have school tomorrow (Saturday) then bring them then, or we will celebrate on Monday. 

I will also send a notice home to reschedule conferences that were missed because of the snow days, the other conferences schedule are still in effect. 

Thanks for your patience!

Math: 

Our money unit is complete. Please continue to give your child opportunities to count money at home.

Student products are due February 18th. We've been discussing about being proactive and getting our 23 products ahead of time. We are SUPER excited!

Parent Conferences:

Thank you for turning in the conference forms. You should have received a small slip from your child indicating the date and time of the conference. Thank you for your flexibility. I look forward to discussing your child's progress in within the next couple weeks.

Enterprise Day!

This quarter the children are learning about our economy. They will be earning "School Bucks" for demonstrating the 7 habits.

Students will be spending the money they are earning on our class February 18, 2014. The children will be taking turns being both producers and consumers. In order to make this possible, each student will be responsible for making a good. They will need to come up with an original product t o "sell" to their classmates. Products should be simple, low cost, and creative as they'll need to produce 23 of the same item to sell. The students may not sell food or candy! 


Some examples of goods students can make include: 
Popsicle picture frames 
Decorated Pencils 
Pet Rocks 
Painted rocks fo r paperweights 
Friendship Bracelets 
Drawings 
Greeting Cards 
Noodle Necklaces/Bracelets 
Decorated Paper Airplanes 
Origami 
Please note that this is meant to be a fun, hands-on learning activity. You should not have to incur a lot of expense for this. If you have trouble coming up with a budget friendly product, let me know and we'll suggest one. 

Thank you for your support!
