October 14 "What is important is to keep learning, to enjoy challenge, and to tolerate ambiguity. In the end there are no certain answers."

Day 2 of Math NECAPS... and your kids are hard at work. You can be proud of their efforts; to remain silent and unmoving for so long is an accomplishment in itself! One more day!!

Just so you know, this week we are working on Spelling and Vocabulary (weekly packet--it's all being done here). We're also doing a story map of our first book of the month (remember, we're responsible for 2 books per month). I started a great read-aloud; it's a ghost story titled Wait Till Helen Comes. We're doing some Chippewa/Ojibwa "picture writing" stories (American Indians had no written language, but they drew pictures to convey important information). We're also creating silhouette collages--VERY cool!
Basically, we're keeping busy and having fun.

Your kids are wonderful, just so you know...
