Writing Workshop Volunteers

Sign up using the link named Nov/Dec Writing Volunteers 
I’m looking for volunteers daily from 2-2:25 pm to assist with writing workshop. Parent volunteers will rotate throughout the classroom and offer assistance to students who need help staying on track, need a cheerleader, or need help spelling phonetically and writing word wall words correctly. Please only sign up if you have completed your Penn Manor Volunteer packet and clearances. Your willingness to help is greatly appreciated.

Turkeys in Disguise

If your child did not bring home a paper turkey to disguise, please let me know so that I can send one home.  Students are encouraged to disguise their turkey as a police officer, princess, marine, teacher, anything they can think of  to go along with the reading of the book Turkey Trouble.  Turkeys are due this Friday, but if you need time over the weekend to complete this task, please feel free to send them in on Monday.  We will be sharing them with the class on Monday.

Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing Series

If you purchased this set of books for your child at the Book Fair I wanted to forewarn you that there are portions of the book that I do not read aloud.  One portion is in reference to Santa – I don’t want to ruin the magic of Christmas for anyone.  The other portion is in reference to the main character Fudge, questioning where babies come from.  Just wanted to give you a heads up in case your child is working on reading the series independently.  It’s a fantastic series and a fun read aloud, but should be done so with care.  🙂

Don’t forget, all Friendsgiving donations are due this Friday.  Our first grade team cannot thank you enough for your generosity!
