Mrs. Hendry’s Newsletter, November 5th, 2018
I hope all of your children enjoyed Halloween last week. They all seemed happy and especially enjoyed our Scavenger Hunt! Also, a big thank you to our room moms for providing the fun snacks and art projects for our parties.
In the next few weeks we will begin working on the letters L and U. The students will also learn about the numbers 4 and 5. I will have the students counting, sorting and tracing these numbers, along with some addition practice. As we get into the month of November, there will be lot s of fun things to talk about in regards to Thanksgiving and why we celebrate it. I have some fun projects planned to incorporate into our daily schedule. The children will be making Thanksgiving necklaces with beads. Each bead will represent something special about the holiday. I will send home the meaning of the necklace with your student to share with you.
The week of the 12th-16th will focus mainly on the Thanksgiving Holiday. I will be having the students do counting with turkeys, making pilgrim hats, and coloring place mats. The place mats will be used during our in class Thanksgiving Feast! This will be taking place on Friday the 16th. A sign-up sheet was emailed to you over the weekend for food items we will serve, but I will print this out and post it outside my classroom door as well. The feast will happen during your normal classroom hours, and you will not need to bring a snack this day unless your child has allergies.
This time of the year we have a lot of school wide charities we donate to when possible. Right now a food drive has begun and it’s our Apple Cup drive! The main hallway will begin to fill up with items rooting for either the Huskies, Cougars or the Ducks! All items will then be dropped off at the St Vincent De Paul food bank. This is the last week to bring in new socks as well to be donated. Any age or gender please!
Food items needed are:
· Canned fruit or Vegetables
· Pork and Beans
· Peanut Butter
· Tuna Fish/Helper
· Mac & Cheese/ Top Ramen
· Spaghetti and tomato Sauce
· Small Cereal Boxes
Reminder! NO school the week of Thanksgiving- 19th-23rd
