Christmas is just around the corner, but it hasn't slowed us down in second grade! We have been learning what to do when we do not know a word, and we have continued to practice regrouping in math. We made pancakes Friday afternoon after "reading" Pancakes for Breakfast (this is a wordless book) by Tommie dePaola. It was kind of funny, because that is what was served for breakfast at school that morning. Our Flat Stanleys have been writing back to us and one even has a facebook account. If you would like to see all the wonderful things Crystal's Stanley has been doing and you have a facebook account, do a search for Flat Stanley Flat from Murray and you should be able to find him.
We continue to have our store every other week, and we could sure use any donations to our classroom store. Items do not have to be new - they could be toys in good shape that your child does not play with anymore. You know the old saying - one man's trash is another man's treasure.
Next week will be a busy one as we will be making gingerbread houses - oh what fun we have that day!!!
