Happy 2019

I hope that everyone had a fun and relaxing break! I miss the kids and am looking forward to seeing them tomorrow! I’m sure they will have many stories to share!

Wednesday, January 2 – We’ll start our week off with Art class. We’ll have a two day math lesson on finding missing addends, and we’ll write some New Year Resolutions.

Thursday, January 3 – Our special is Applied Engineering. Ms. Wilson will be testing the entire school this month, so she’ll only be taking her students 2 days/week. We’ll continue with reading groups each day in our room.

Friday, January 4 – Our special is Music. We’ll review for our chapter 4 Math test that we’ll take on Monday. We’ll continue to learn about our community. Today is first Friday spirit day at Eshleman. Send the kids to school wearing their Eshleman shirt or blue and gold!

A few reminders for the new year:

December Pizza Hut Reading Logs can be turned in this week. Thanks for reading at home.

Please send lunch money to school in a zip lock bag labeled with your student’s name and 1-T.

Homework each night for just a few minutes:

Reading group book

Math fact practice

Spelling word practice

Now that the weather is cold, please send the kids to school with winter coats, gloves, and hats. We’ve had many days of indoor recess due to rain puddles on the playground, but we hope to go outside as much as possible when the weather is reasonable. I have 7 pairs of extra gloves for students to borrow, but that never seems to be enough for all of those cold hands!

Looking Ahead:

Monday, January 7 – I will have a substitute. Our special is Phys. Ed.

Thursday, January 17 – I will have a substitute so I can read individually with each of the kids. Eshleman rollerskating party at the castle sponsored by our wonderful PTO!

Friday, January 18 – Teacher in-service, no school for students

Monday, January 21 – No school

Friday, January 25 – 1:30 early dismissal
