Diamondbacks- 2nd November Update

Dear Parents of the Diamondbacks,
 
Thank you to all who attended the Red Carpet Fall Festival!  Special thanks to our very own Rawlings Family for taking home our one of a kind and absolutely charming locker-hooked rag rug!  Stay tuned to the Social Season events and get your tickets while they are still available.
 
It has been great seeing all of you in our classroom for your observations and I have really enjoyed meeting for your fall conferences.  I appreciate you bringing in your insights and your questions.  I hope you come away from these meetings with a good sense for how your child is involved during the work cycle.
 
Our class will be hosting our fall feast this coming Tuesday!  We are shopping for the lunch menu items and ingredients this Friday and will be busy at work cooking and baking all day Monday and Tuesday morning in preparation.  We are all very excited to share with each other.
 
This year we have also decided to host a class-wide food drive.  If you would like to participate please send non-perishable canned goods from now through next Tuesday.  The committee for this work is planning a donation drop-off goings out for  Thursday following our lunch.
 
Lesson and follow up work these past two weeks has included: atomic structure, mandalas,  perfect cubes,  perfect tenses, literature plot map, squaring a binomial,  cubing a trinomial, parts and features of a river, building polyhedrons, equivalence with the decagon, homophones, computer research, linking verbs, divisibility by 3, 6, and 9, lines and curves, language experience cards, fundamental human needs charts for research, knitting, rhyming and non-rhyming poetry, and typing practice!
 
Enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving,
 
Ms. Sara
