I hope this update finds you and your family well and rested!
Happenings this week:
Tuesday, November 27: PM Library Book Exchange
FUNWORK begins Tuesday. This is an optional “homework” that students can chose to do for class reward marbles and sticker prizes. FUNWORK is marked Funwork or FW, and is optional. Homework is marked Homework or HW and is not optional. 🙂
Benchmark Math Test: Wednesday we will have our first Benchmark Test that will include chapters 1 and 2. These test results are collected and sent to the district for evaluation and data. We will have a review on Tuesday. You can help your child at home. Give your child a pile of coins. Have him/her sort the coins, pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters. Have him/her count each pile and WRITE the number. Compare two piles. Ask your child which one is greater than, less than, or equal to. Students will be tested on counting, writing, and comparing numbers 0 – 10.
Gingerbread Day! Thursday, December 20. Both classes will participate in our Gingerbread Day through math, reading, writing, and science. I need your help with a few donations for our big day. Please click the link below if you can help with frosting, mini chocolate chips, or pull and peel licorice. Two parent helpers will be needed for each session. AM starting at 9:30 and PM starting at 1:30. If you have your clearances with the Penn Manor District and can help out that day, please email me.

On December 20 we will also open our Teacher Holiday Wish List gifts. A green flyer was sent home last week about our wish list for classroom donations. If you would like me to help your child select a star from our wreath, please let me know. Thank you!
Holiday Book Mystery Reader: Parents, grandparents and special family members are invited to sign up for a slot to read a holiday book to our class. Don’t tell your student that you are coming in. It’s a great surprise and so much fun for everyone! Since this is a short, one time activity, you do not need clearances for this mini event. Please sign up through sign up genius below to get your slot. Please bring in a holiday book that your student loves to hear during this time of year. Please refrain from bringing in a religious theme book in the public school setting.
