Grinch Day Fun

I remembered the “green Grinch grime” to practice our spelling words, I remembered to bring the Grinch juice,  I remembered to wear green, I even remembered to wear a green hat, but I forgot to bring my camera to school!!  I was so bummed.  Luckily it didn’t stop us from having a great day of green, Grinch fun!  Thank you parents for donating supplies to make our special day memorable!

Did your child come home on Friday and ask for a pogo stick?  We ended our day on Friday with an X-pogo assembly.  This extreme pogo team talked to the students of Eshleman about following their passion and working hard.  They performed some very impressive pogo stunts including jumping right over Dr. Cox!  This team shared a great message and entertained our students!  Lucky us!

Excitement is in the air but we’re still plugging away with our school work.  Keep practicing those spelling words.  We’ll have our test on Wednesday!

Reminders –

Tuesday- DEAR (Drop Everything and Read).  Send your student to school with gloves, hats, scarves and a good book!  We’ll be reading while we wear our winter gear even though it feels more like spring outside!  We also have gym today.

Wednesday – PJ’s day in 1-T.  We’ll be joining with Mr. Heiney’s class for a Polar Express celebration.  Everyone will receive a golden ticket to board the 1-T train!  We’ll have some hot chocolate Math fun using mini marshmallows to add and subtract and of course there will be plenty of real hot chocolate to drink!  Wednesday is a 1:30 early dismissal day.

When we return from winter break on January 4 we will get started with our bubble gum Math program.  Each student will work at his/her own pace to learn math facts and pass timed tests to earn paper gumballs for his/her individual gumball machine. Practicing Math Facts at home each night will be part of your child’s homework.  Thank you so much for your support!  Log into First in Math over vacation when you have time!

When we return on January 4th it will be cycle day one.  We will have music and book exchange.  “A” lunch is chicken nuggets, and “B” lunch is egg McComet.
