Oct. 4 Monday

I am out sick today. Must be this cold weather! I just wanted to post in case someone checks here for this week's newsletter. A hard copy will be sent home tomorrow, Tuesday. See you tomorrow.

This week is Fire Prevention week. When I was in 3rd grade, we had a fire at our house. Thankfully no one was injured, but there was much damage. I will never forget hearing the fire trucks at school and coming home to the disaster. Please take time this week and go over an emergency exit plan with your family, and take a minute to double check your smoke alarms. We can’t prevent all disasters, but we can try. I found some great info at

We have a great display outside of the gym so be sure to take a peek!

Math: Combinations of 10. Complete the worksheet. Teach someone Tens Go Fish to help you practice these combinations. You will need a deck of playing cards...or you can use the number cards attached. Please keep these cards at home to play other games in the future.

Word Study: ACK Words!

Read Jumpin’ Jack to 3 people. Circle the ACK words.

Study your ACK words by completing one of spelling activities. You can keep this list at home to refer to each week. You only need to complete one activity, but you will get a homework sticker for any that you turn in!
