Speaking of the Poetry Cafe, we are still in need of a few things. If you can send any of the following, please e-mail me. (I will send a confirmation e-mail. Please send items to school on Friday morning.)
4 dozen donut holes
4 dozen mini muffins
2 packages of pre-cut apple slices(enough for 20)
2 gallons of orange juice
2 gallons of apple juice
cups, plates, napkins
*We also need ~20 2 liter bottles for a science project. We are building mini-ecosystems, and I'd like to have 2 per pair of students, but we can manage with 2 for every 4 students if we have to. If you could send them by Friday, that'd be great. Please rinse them before sending them to school.
Below is the list of concepts we will be studying this week.
*We will be working in centers this week. The students will be completing 6 activities that will be due at the end of the day Thursday. Check in with them daily to make sure they are on track/completed.
