Week of January 3, 2011

We were so busy getting back in the swing of things from vacation, we forgot to take some pictures to share with you. In reading, we are working on comprehension skills and what you do to help you understand a story. In math, we are getting ready to regroup in subtraction. The students did a wonderful job regrouping!

We have started our new author study of Robert Munsch. He is so funny. We made "fake" clay cookies (we also decorated some real ones), just like in Mmmm, Cookies. We had a great time fooling the staff around the elementary. Don't worry, we didn't let anyone take a bite of our clay cookies.
We are looking forward to our field trip on Friday to the Civic Center in Des Moines. We are going to see Strega Nona, a musical based on the book by Tomie DePaola.
We did want to take a minute to show you some of the back packs the kids helped to purchase in Uganda for the kids there. We were so glad we were able to share with them.
