*We have snack time every day after P.E. (10:45) NO PEANUTS OR FOOD PROCESSED WITH PEANUTS are allowed. You truly must check ALL labels as peanuts are added or manufactured alongside MANY snack products like crackers, granola-type snack bars and even some yogurt products! I ask for fresh fruit or veggies as these are healthy, eaten quickly, and help hydrate the children as well. Water bottles may be brought to school but are not allowed in the classroom. Students can keep the water bottles in their backpacks and drink from them after P.E. and recess.
**P.E. is every day at 10:10. Students should wear their P.E. shoes to school and change into other shoes if needed afterwards. Store those shoes in their backpacks so students can change into them after P.E. during snack time.
******Contact me if you have ANY questions or concerns.

ELA (Reading, Grammar)
This week we are reading our first novel, "Herbie Jones and the Second Grade Slippers." This is a delightful story about friendship, caring for others, and accepting one another for who we are.
We will not have a spelling test this week, however, we will be working on these words from the novel: slippers, pantry, promised, mouthpiece, confused, enormous, laundry, solution, tomorrow, guppies, variety, listened, comfortable, thermometer, clapping.
ALong with our novel, we will be working with many aspects of literature: character maps, citing text, cause and effect, figurative language and story elements.
For Grammar our novel presents many aspects as well: synonyms and antonyms, common and proper nouns, adjectives, using quotations in sentences, and prefixes and suffixes.
~~~~~Students are allowed to bring their own slippers to wear in class.
