Weekly Overview November 17, 2014

We have two field trips this week!  We are going to the Field Museum to visit the Native American Exhibit on Tuesday, November 18.  I still need quite a few trip forms returned!  I need them by Monday-thanks.  They are over-due!!

Also, we will go on our second field trip of the week a few days later, on Friday, November 21 to the Auditorium Theater!  I still have a few forms out on this trip.

Thanks for your immediate attention on these trips!!  Thanks to the parents who I have heard from that are coming!!

Please also note that our Food Drive has begun!!  Please donate any non-perishable food items!!  We have a box for your child to drop off any items!!  I am hoping to get 100% of our classroom students to donate at least one item!!  Thanks for your help.

Language Arts:  We are continuing to work on our Native American Unit and are learning about the People of the Plains.  What can your children tell you?  Look for a note on Monday about a “Potlatch” potluck celebration we will have Tuesday, November 25th!!!

Math:  We will have our Unit 3 test in Math on Tuesday.  The homelink sheets and Unit 3 study guides are good reviews for this test.
