I wanted to let you know that we will be participating in a “shake out” drill tomorrow, Oct. 16. There are 3 parts to the drill – 1)Drop to the ground
2) Take Cover
3) Hold on to your shelter and be prepared to move with it until the shaking stops
More information about this “Shake out” drill can be found on the Eshleman blog. I have already spoken to the children about this, so it won’t be a surprise to them. We’ll follow up the shake out drill with a fire drill. We will be in art class so this will be a great opportunity to learn where to go when they aren’t in our room!
Today we finished our Columbus unit. We had a lot of fun trading items with other classes in the school, just like Columbus traded with the Natives! Be sure to read the Columbus packet that will be coming home soon, so you can see what we traded!
We have a spelling test tomorrow. New words will be coming home on Friday.
Book orders are due on line, or with a check made payable to Scholastic by Friday.
Friday is our exercise for Eshleman day! Please send your students to school in comfy clothing and sneakers.
Thanks so much for all of the paper towel rolls and disinfecting wipes! You’re the best!
The kids were wondering if their reading book practice can count toward their 10 minutes of reading for their “Book It.” The answer is YES!
