At the Listening Center, students will listen to a story and write the main character. During Read to Self, student will read books that they choose, but go on a “sight word hunt” looking for 5 different sight words. Finally, during Read with Someone, students will read with a buddy and discuss the beginning, middle, and ending of the book.



During theme this week, students will create a turkey and write on each feather what they things they are thankful for.

Students will work on Math Centers that focus on the following:


  • measurement

Money ($12) and permission slip were due last week for the field trip. I have sent reminders. Please turn it. If your child does not have both, she/he will not be able to attend the trip.
