Sea World was a total success! We had a lot of fun learning about different animals' habitats and adaptations. Our educational program allowed us to learn more about orca whales, how humans and sea animals coexist, and the importance of keeping our oceans clean. We then had the opportunity to see the "Clyde and Seymore's Sea Lion High" show, which showcased the amazing things that seals and walruses can do. It was a splash...literally! Your children were absolutely magnificent! I would like to thank the chaperones that attended for making the trip such a success. I couldn't have done it without you! Thank you, thank you, and thank you!
Multiplication Facts: In math we are working on multiplication. We will learn multiplication in our daily lesson, but also work on memorizing multiplication facts. Last week we were working on multiples of 4. On Friday, students tested for 1 1/2 minutes. This week, 11/16-11/20, we will continue multiplication by 4, but the test will be for 1 minute. We will continue this pattern until all facts are mastered.

Box Tops for Education: Our class is collecting Box Tops for Education and could really use your support. Just look for the Box Tops logo on hundreds of grocery and household product, clip the label, and send them in to our classroom. We are trying to earn "free" money for our school (each label is worth 10 cents). So before you throw away any of your used items, please check to see if there is a box top label you can clip for our class. Thank you in advance for your support!
