Week 14 ~ Dec. 4 - Dec. 8, 2017

Happy Monday! 10 days of school to go in 2017!  Keep up with the reading steps and practicing Power Words these next two weeks and then we'll take a break and enjoy the holidays!

***We will be having a special snack on Polar Express Day (the 15th) in the classroom.  We will make Polar Express train cars using graham crackers, icing, food coloring, licorice, Chex Mix and mini Oreo cookies.  We will need 5 containers of whipped vanilla icing, 1 bag of red (cherry or strawberry) licorice, 2 bags of mini Oreos, 2 boxes of graham crackers, 1 box of Chex cereal, 1 pack of paper plates (at least 22) and a box of plastic spoons (at least 22).  Please send a note in your child’s agenda if you are able to donate 1 of these items for us.  I will confirm with you in your child’s agenda if the item is still needed.  And we will need the items by Wednesday, Dec. 13th.  Thanks so much!!!
