Purple Class Party

Dear Parents of the Purple Class:

Due to your student’s outstanding behavior, they have earned a class party on Wednesday, January 17th.  They voted on a free choice party.  On Wednesday, they may be an electronic device, game, stuffed animal, art supplies, etc. to class.  Make sure that any electronic devices are charged and turned off.  The batteries seem to die very quickly in our building.  All devices will be secure in the classroom when they are not in use. They may also wear their pajamas and bring a small treat.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for all of your help and support,

Mrs. Dow

Bubble Gum Multiplication

We are excited to be starting our Bubble Gum Math Multiplication!  Your students will be working each day to pass off one of their multiplication facts and earn bubblegum!  Please make sure they are practicing their facts at home.  Most students have already passed off their 0’s, 1’s, and 2’s.  We will be doing 3’s on Tuesday.   

This is the practice before we start our Banana Split Multiplication in a couple of months.  Thanks for all of your help and support!

Happy Bubbleguming!!

Funny Letters To Father Christmas

Dear Santa,

I lost my list of toys, so please just send me the stuff that you forgot from last year.
Todd

Dear Father Christmas,
What should I leave for your reindeer to eat? Do they like cookies, too? My mom won’t let me bring hay into the living room.
Your friend, Sandy

Dear Santa,
I need a new skateboard for Christmas. The one I got now crashes too much. Band-aids would be OK too.
David

Dear Santa,
Would you rather I leave you cookies and milk or pizza? Dad says you’d probably like the pizza. Write back right away to let me know.
Love, Lisa

Dear Kris Kringle,
Please give me a tank, a jet fighter, 20 green soldiers, and a bazooka gun. I’m planning a surprise attack on my brother. So don’t tell anyone.
Thanks, Danny

Dear Santa,
How will you get into our house this year? We don’t have a chimney and my father just installed a very expensive security system.
Julie

November Book Reports

Don’t forget your child’s poetry book report is due November 29th.  To all of you who have already turned it in, thank you for the great poems.  I have loved reading them!

Thanksgiving Feast!

Dear Parents:

On Tuesday, November 22nd, we are going to have a treat and game day to celebrate your students earning a class reward.  For our celebration, your child may bring a treat to share with the class.   We are trying to stay away from a lot of “sweet treats” so we encourage bringing things such as crackers, fruit, veggies, bread, cheese, fruit snacks, etc.  It’s going to be like a smorgasbord so they don’t need to bring an individual treat for each student.

They may also bring a board game or card game to play with other students in the class.

We appreciate all you do and look forward to a day of fun.

Thanks for all of your help and support,

Mrs. Dow and Sra. Buval J

Pumpkin Pie

A Piece of Pumpkin Pie?Pumpkin Thanksgiving jokes

Jolene was only 8 years old and lived with family in the country with her parents and brother.  Consequently they did not often have visitors from the city.  One day Jolene’s mother said that father was bringing two guests home for Thanksgiving supper.

After they had enjoyed the turkey, Jolene went to the kitchen to help her mother, and proudly brought in the first piece of pumpkin pie and gave it to her father.  He then passed the plate to a guest.  When Jolene came in with the second piece and gave it to his father, he again gave it to a guest.

This was too much for Little Jolene, who blurted out, ‘It’s no use, Daddy. The pieces are all the same size.’
