What happened in Mrs. Wright`s class during November? Read to find out!
by Mrs. Wright’s Class
Reading In November, reading swept us away to a magical, funny and cute story, none other than Wishtree. Reading also took us to a village where NO ONE would share. That was until 3 monks Hok, Lok, and Seiw, paid that little town a visit, and then, of course, everyone shared! By Natalie
THE MATH PROBLEMS
IN MATH WE DO A LOT OF WORD PROBLEMS AND WE ALSO DO A LOT OF MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION.
In math we are learning multiplication and division with zeros, ones, twos, threes, fours, fives, sixes, and sevens! We learned the threes and fours song , the six and seven trick, and how to count by twos and fives. Have you ever done multiplication? Math is sure fun! By Daisy
Math and Social Studies
In math, we learned the 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s and 0s times tables. We even had a chapter test! In social studies, we learned about the history of Lancaster County. By Nataile
Winter snow already!
On Thursday, November the fifteenth, it SNOWED! We had lunch at 10:50 and an early dismissal at 12:15. Also, the following day, we had a two-hour delay! It was a crazy week, plus a ton of fun. By Daisy
Guess what!?! Before Thanksgiving, yes, before Thanksgiving, it SNOWED!!!!!!!!!! All of the after school people either were car riders, or bus riders. Walkers had a winter wonderland on one side, and on the other side, a blizzard!!! Meanwhile, some of the bus riders were an hour and a half late!!! Yes, transportation was rough!! But, not to worry!!! Everyone got home safely!!! (But the next day we had a 2-hour delay!) By Natalie
STONE SOUP … YUM!
Here is a picture of stone soup.
In class, we learned how to make stone soup and we ate it, too. If I had to write a comment, I would say it’s pretty good. Guess what, we even did a readers theater on Stone Soup. We also had a harvest party. We made turkey bowls and butter, and we watched Happy Thanksgiving, Charlie Brown. By Ellie
On November nineteenth, we made friendship mix with our kindergarten buddies. We helped our buddies count the ingredients with ten frames and put them in the bowl. It sure did taste good! We also did a play about the story, Stone Soup, for the kindergarteners. We had a fun time with Kindergarten.
Have you read stone soup? It’s about three men who make a soup out of stones. Nobody in the village likes the men, but slowly they all open up there hearts a little and give some food to put in the pot with three stones in it. The villagers never eat the stones in the end because everyone added a bit of good food to make the soup taste good, even if they were to take out the stones. We did a play of Stone Soup for the Kindergarteners. We also made stone soup in our classroom. It sure was good! We also made butter to put on crackers and a turkey bowl, and then we watched a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. It was SO fun! By Daisy
Super Spelling and Wonderful Writing:
We do lots of super spelling and wonderful writing! We have a spelling test Friday and we do writing almost everyday! Our words can be tricky, but that’s what spelling words are for, so you can learn how to spell them! By Daisy
IN NOVEMBER WE WROTE OUR FIRST BIOGRAPHY, AND IT WAS FUN. BY: Wyatt

Pumpkins on Monday

Music and Recorders
Mr. Dutton asks that recorders be kept in students’ backpacks for Music every Day B. Students are encouraged to practice their recorder in between classes, but please put the recorder right back in the backpack. Sadly, a LARGE number of students were not able to participate in Music class this past week due to not having their recorder. Mr. Dutton asks students who do not have their recorder to bring a pencil to complete written work during class. Tuesday, 10/9 will be a Day B. Please check right now that the recorder is in the backpack and ready for school tomorrow!

PTO Sub Sale Orders are due next Tuesday, 10/9 to support a school-wide field trip in April. Pick-up will be on Saturday 10/20 at LeTort during the Fall Fest.
Our class took a virtual field trip to two continents, Africa and Antarctica today. We used Virtual Reality glasses with cell phones inside to take an up-close peek at places on these continents. On our expedition, our class looked at landforms. We discussed the weather and the climate in each place, and we discussed how geography influences the animals and people which live in the places we visited.
Students then recorded notes about what they learned on their virtual field trip. Ask your child about Victoria Falls, the giraffes on the Serengeti plains, the gorillas in the rainforest, the Sahara Desert, and the Great Pyramids of Egypt, and which continent these are on. Then ask about the ice and animals they saw when they went to Antarctica!
A special “thank you” to Judy Keller, our Technology support specialist, who made this event possible for our class today!
