Halloween Fun!

 We have been having a lot of fun celebrating Halloween so far this week.  The kids got to be poets on Monday.  Each student wrote and illustrated a poem about spiders!
The kids enjoy their reading journals so much that I decided that we should do interactive math journals also!  Our first entry in our math journal was learning about the commutative property of additon.  The kids glued matching eyeball dominoes in their journals and wrote the addition problems underneath.  So if the domino on one side was 3 + 4 = 7 the one across from it is 4 + 3 = 7.
We will continue to work in our reading and math journals throughout the year.  Thank you so much for donating supplies to help interactive journals be successful.
Halloween is tomorrow!  Please send your child to school in their NORMAL clothes!  Costumes should arrive separately in a clearly labeled bag.  I recommend discreetly initialing all costume pieces also.  It gets a little crazy with everyone trying to change at once.  Our parade will begin at 1:45.  Weather permitting it will be outdoors (although, this does NOT sound promising).  In case of rain we will parade through the gym.  Our parties will immediately follow the parade and all are welcome!
