The students in our class have continued to do a magnificent job following the classroom and school rules. They have been kind and caring classmates to each other and help one another. Today, for our classroom reward, the children wanted Mr. Larson to visit our classroom and read a Thanksgiving book. Of course, Mr. Larson was thrilled. We loved the book that he read! We also enjoyed some yummy ice cream sandwiches afterwards. Thanks, Mr. Larson!
We have had lots of fun playing various math games as we explore our place value unit and making ten math facts. Keep an eye out at home. Some of these games will be sent for you to play. Thank you for reinforcing these important math skills and facts!
Tens go fish is so much fun to play!
Miss Craffey (a former Burr student) visited our classroom to observe for part of her college course. She is helping with a number chart puzzle by looking carefully at the numbers in the tens and ones.
The trading game is a hit during math time and helps reinforce the tens and ones.
We have been reading non-fiction books in reading. The children have been learning the important steps of what to do in order to become super smart about non-fiction topics. The chart above is displayed in our classroom as a reference for the children.
The children filled out classroom good behavior jar once again! It is wonderful to see watch all of the children do what is expected of them in school. You can always count on every child to follow the classrom and school rules and treat each other with kindness. What a fabulous group of role models to other!
Today we honored the veterans who have served or are serving in the Armed Forces. We had a school-wise assembly and invited veterans to watch our special assembly performed by the older grades. In our classroom we talked about each of the armed forces and what each one of them does to protect our country. Thank you for all that you do to keep our country safe, Veterans.

The children enjoyed wearing their pajamas and slippers on Friday to support our school wide fundraiser to benefit Mercy Hospital and Homeless Shelter.
The first grade classes met at the end of the day had an imaginary "sleepover" and read books using flashlights. We also enjoyed eating popcorn, too!
