I hope you all enjoyed your extra hour of sleep this weekend!
I would like to thank the parents that gave their time to organize our class event for our Game Board Play Day last Friday. The continental breakfast was amazing thanks to the generosity of our Room Echo Parents. I would also like to extend a thank you to all our parents that attended the event and had the opportunity to see what their students have been doing in class and to see the successes of what their imaginations can accomplish. We all hope you had the opportunity to participate in many of the board games. The students had a great time creating these games and this week we will complete the project as part of our math studies to analyze the data the students collected. Pictures of this event will be under the blogger heading on the website www.schooldaystoday.com.
The iPads for our class have arrived and we have already begun using them. Please have your student come to class with headphones that preferably have a microphone so they will be able to use their iPad to its fullest advantage. As a reminder these headphones will remain at school and each will be individually bagged with your students name.
This week I will be conducting reading assessments in preparation for our next Literature Study.

· Tuesday, November 11th is a school holiday – Veteran’s Day. If your family will be taking advantage of a long weekend and your student will not be in class on Monday, November 10th please let me know so I can prepare an Independent Study Plan.
