Happy Sunday! 

I hope you are having a great weekend. This week we learned about needs and wants. We had great class conversations. I loved watching the kids make connections to their lives, the books we read, and asking questions about needs and wants. The next two weeks we will be talking about being "thankful" and what that means and looks like. I have a lot of fun activities and crafts planned for them. 

Needed: I am looking for clean/empty soup/veggie/chili cans. We will be making a project with them. Please send in cans this week and next week. Thank you! 

Friendly Reminders/"Happenings"
November Conference Link:
Thank you for signing up for conferences! I look forward to meeting with you this week. You should have received a Google link invite from me last week. Please click on the link to meet on our time/date. Please let me know if you want me to send the link again.

Conference Packet: On Friday I sent a conference packet in red folders. Included are your child's most current assessments, math test, rhyming, and letter ID/sounds. We will go over this during our conference time. Please look over the packet before we meet. 
Reading Homework:On Monday I will include a paper book we read in class. We have been learning about "needs and wants." Please have them talk about the book and about what they think their needs and wants are? You will need to help them read this book. We also discussed that sometimes an object might be "both."

Star Student: Each week I will pick a student (at random) to be our Student of the Week. When it is your student's turn, I will send home a notebook with all the information you will need. Thanks so much!
