    Today we began our sorting unit. We are learning how to 1) sort by attributes (size, color, shape) 2) count the amount in each group 3) sort the groups by amount. We practiced these skills using M & M's! The children sorted them by color, then they counted how many of each color they had. Finally, they sorted the color groups by amount. The candy was sent home with your child so they can show you what they learned. We will sort various objects the rest of this week. By the end of this unit, the children should be able to do our 3 step sort for multiple attributes of the same group of objects. 

    Thank you to all who returned Practice Sheet #7 today. Practice Sheet #8 is coming home in your child's folder today. Thank you for spending a little time each day on the Practice Sheet. 

    Progress Reports will come home in the Report of Learning Folders on Friday, November 18th. Please read over it, sign it, and return it to school after Thanksgiving break.

    Friday is Community Hero Day! Students may dress up like their favorite community hero and bring in $1. Please remember that dress-up days must follow the dress code. 

    As the cold winter weather arrives, please dress your child to go outside for recess. We will go outside as long as the "feels like" temperature is 32 degrees or greater. Winter boots are not allowed at school. Please write your child's name in their coat or jacket.
