+doughnuts are on sale Monday. Please bring 150 yen in a plastic bag for your child if they would like one
Just a reminder to check your child’s assignment notebook and make sure they write their book title and if they like the story.
I also had them write “word work practice” in their notebook as a reminder to practice.
We are finishing up our first unit on jobs and started giving our speeches today. We will be posting the videos online hopefully next week!
This week we focused on using strategies for solving hard word such as double checking it, breaking the words into parts, and trying it two ways (long vs short vowel sounds)
We also tied what we learned in reading into writing and how we need to start really making sure we read our work after we write it to see if it makes sense and if we could maybe spell the word a little bit better. (and not just reading it through without making changes!)
We started our new unit on shapes and have been playing with tangrams. They have been loving it so far and can tell it will be a fun unit!
Reminders(some new some from emails)
PSG will be having a bake sale and also selling school items

Here are some important notes about Halloween Monday:
On Monday October 31st, the Elementary School Student Council will be having a Halloween Donut Sale. Each Donut is 150yen.
To get into the spirit, students may wear any of the following items as suggestions in addition to their regular school uniform.
Cat’s ears or tail (or the like)
Witch’s or other Halloween hat
Halloween pins, i.e., Jack-o-Lantern, ghost, witch, etc.
Students may not dye their hair, wear a full-face mask or orange socks.
Students should travel to and from school in their uniform only and then add these decorations to them once they arrive. They should remove them before traveling home. No make up should be worn on that day.
