Week of January 18, 2021 First, let me say thank you to all who have been praying for my husband and me.  He is much better and plans to go back to work full time on Monday.  I have retested and am waiting for results.  I'm hoping to return to school on Tuesday. Mrs. Middleman has told me many good things about your children.  I am very proud of how they cooperated with the oddness of this past week.   
 Week of January 11, 2021 I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your families!  I loved spending time with mine but was looking forward to getting back to the routine of school. Unfortunately, my husband tested positive for COVID over break. I'm now quarantined for a few weeks even though I tested negative.  I'm thankful that Mrs. Christine Middleman will be our substitute teacher.  Things went smoothly Thursday and Friday so I'm expecting a good week for the class. I am a bit disappointed that we won't be able to work on our presentation, "The Poppyseed Cakes", for the Pre-K classes as I had planned. That is one thing I can't do long distance!  So, it will be postponed until February. If you have any questions this coming week, please reach out to me and I'll get back to you as soon as I can with the answers.
 Week of December 21, 2020 What a fun surprise the snow storm was on Wednesday! I've heard all about the sledding and snowball fights.  Having 2 days off this week has shifted a few things that I had planned.  Our party will still be on Wednesday during the half day.  Please remember pick-up is at 12:30. I had someone ask a question about the ice cream toppings ~ your child is not required to bring a topping, it is optional.  If you decide to send something, please only. send in one.
Week of December 14, 2020 What a great day for PJ's! We enjoyed donuts and hot chocolate with whipped cream and sprinkles in the morning with our work. In the afternoon we did a bit of research on the iPads to find out the origin of chocolate as well as all the products it is used for. Please check your child's folder for an announcement about our Christmas celebration.  
Week of December 7, 2020  Woo! Hoo!  We earned 100 stars for Spelling!   Our reward? Pajama Day! So bring your pillow, blanket, and sleeping buddy to school on Friday . Wear your favorite PJs and get ready for a fun day.  You may also bring slippers to wear inside the building.
  Week of November 30 Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving break with lots of family and fun! My blog is back on track so we'll see how it goes ~
Week of October 19 - 23      We've had a fun but also a tough week. We've done some English games to review common and proper nouns which everyone seemed to enjoy.  Math has been a bit difficult because we are learning the Distributive Property.  Next week will be a continuation of this so I'm hoping those who are still confused will have a better understanding with more practice.      Pumpkin Heads are due on Monday!  We'll be placing them in the front hallway along with our book reports so we can share them with others.       Just a reminder ~ please remember to sign the agenda each school night.  It helps me to know that you are aware of class assignments when I see those initials!
