Our Texas buddies are off all this week as it is Thanksgiving in Texas. We missed talking to our buddies last week as our skating schedule was upset and this conflicted with our Skype time. So we sent them a message saying we will miss them and we wished them a great Thanksgiving break. We hope to receive their package this week with their letters, a book and other wonderful treats. We will Skype with them on Dec 3rd. Play with Your Food is on Wed, Nov 25th. Everyone is encouraged to do their best and bring in a work of art. It doesn't have to take up a lot of time or cost a lot of money. We want everyone to look at home for a fruit or vegetable they already have and make it into their best creation ever. I can't wait to see what our students come up with this year!! Counting money and working with numbers to 100 is still what we are working on. This week we are learning how to make numbers with 10' s and 1's. We also will be learning how to describe numbers in a variety of ways. This is very easy and fun to do. Our weather sure changed since our snow day on Monday. It is very cold down her next to the river so it important that everyone comes with the proper clothing like a winter coat, ski pants, boots, hats and mittens. It really isn't any fun playing outdoors if you are not dressed for the weather. So dig out the winter gear and lets get ready for the colder weather headed our way!!
