We have some excited things happening right now in our class. We have started an author study on Mo Willems. On Tuesday I gave each student a Mo Willems book with activities in it. I hope they are enjoying it! The students LOVE his books. Today they should be bringing home a book they made to convince you to let them stay up past their bedtime. This was based on the book “Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late!” We have some very creative writers in the class!! Here is a great website to check out all about Mo Willems! http://www.mowillems.com/
Our 100th Day of school is on Thursday, January 25th. We are going to have an exciting day. I would like if you and your child could get creative and bring in 100 items of something. Every student should have a gallon ziplock bag with them. The 100 items should fit in the bag. Example: Cereal, Q-tips, pennies. Please do not feel pressured to buy anything extra, this should be something you have at home. Students can start bringing in their items on Monday of next week.
Report cards went home last week in Thursday folders. Please make sure you have signed and returned the envelop. Thursday folders should be sent back on Friday with homework. If your student has lost his/her Thursday folder it is $1 to replace. I would love if every student could have a Thursday folder by next week. This folder keeps both myself and your student more organized.

However, I am usually quickest at responding on Dojo because I have it up all day on my computer. If you are not connected, please send me a note with your email or phone number so I can connect you!

She is a retired teacher and I have all the confidence in the world that your students will be taken care of! I will have
