It is that time of year where our supplies are depleting and need to be replenished.
We are in desperate need for pencils and tissue boxes in our classroom! We need pencils, preferably Ticonderoga branded pencils. The Ticonderoga pencils have the best attached eraser and are durable. They can be found at any of your local convenience stores.
Starting this quarter, students will be provided with a spelling/phonics packet to complete throughout the week. The packet will be given every Monday. I will collect the packet as a whole on Friday. Please note that there will also be a spelling test on the Friday that it is due. The spelling words will be on the right side of the packet.
This week’s spelling words are: (Prefixes: semi-, multi-, and poly)

Thank you to all those that obtained their child's respective books for our book club. As a reminder to those students that have not gotten the book, information was given during report card conferences. If you are unsure about what book to get, please email me as soon as possible.
There is a slight change of plans. Students will STILL need their books for our book club, but we will be using it in January, after break. We will be reading a book together to practice our book club expectations in discussion, being prepared, what materials to begin, homework, and behavior. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have brought. This book that we are reading first has been provided as the school had a class set.
Thank you so much for your understanding!
