And the third group was iPads.
We continued with more ROOM ON THE BROOM fun by rolling dice and graphing the result. If you have a chance, ask your child which object had the most, the least, was there a tie? They're pretty savvy at answering the questions now! :)
We were able to get to the library and to the computer lab also on Monday.
Wednesday we learned about BATS! We started the morning by making a list of things called: What we THINK we know about bats. Then we read a couple of fact books about bats. We then made another list of facts we learned about bats from our books. We found out that some of the things we THOUGHT we knew about bats were true and some of them we were waaaaay wrong! :)
A book shaped like a bat with bat facts in it is in our "stuff" this afternoon and we finished our afternoon with iPads and QR Codes of short bat stories.
Next week will start our annual COIN COLLECTION for classroom books. There was a special mention of this in the ALLI CAT NEWS that was sent to you online. Here is the letter:
Mark your calendars so you will not miss our Scholastic Book Fair. Our Book Fair gives you and your children the opportunity to buy quality books and products at affordable prices. You’ll enjoy all of the excitement! Plus, our Book Fair serves as a fundraiser for the Academic Booster Club. These funds will be used to supply the Elementary Reading Counts Book store and give the librarians an opportunity to purchase new books for the library for all to enjoy. It also helps buy academic letters & pins for our Jr High and High School students. The ABC club also uses money raised to offer and provide teacher grants.
Once again the ABC Club has decided to run the “Change” Contest this year. It will run from Monday, October 23rd to Friday, November 3rd. Students can bring change/bills from home to deposit in a container in their classrooms. At the end of each week, we will count the change/bills collected and post the amount from each classroom outside the computer lab. At the end of the two weeks, we will see which classrooms have collected the MOST MONEY and those rooms will win a PIZZA PARTY!! One classroom from P-K, 1st-3rd and 4th-6th will be receiving a party. GOOD LUCK STUDENTS!!
This money will be used to pay the annual “per student fee” to continue to use the Reading Counts program at West Lyon. A portion of the money raised will also go to purchasing new books for classrooms.
Thanks so much for your continued support, and we look forward to seeing you at the book fair!
