Dear Parents & Families,
I hope you all had a wonderful restful break. We’re excited to be back together. This week we will start our “Fraction” unit in math as well as do an author study in writing for our upcoming author visit (see details below).
Margriet Ruurs is the author of over 35 books for children and educators. She has a Master of Education degree from Simon Fraser University. She loves to visit schools and share about writing, becoming a published author, and the importance of a good book and READING! We thought it would be wonderful and extremely powerful for 2nd and 4th grader writers to meet her and learn about publishing books. We have invited her to Irving for a half-day workshop. She will spend an hour with 2nd graders and an hour with 4th graders sharing her books and the power of writing. The author visit will take place on Friday, January 18, 2019. Each student will be responsible for bringing in $3. Please send in $3 by January 11th. We are very excited to welcome Margriet to Irving.
Room 12 is quickly running out of snack. We typically only provide snack after first recess when we have donations. Thanks to the families who brought in snack at the beginning of the school year! Our class really appreciated it! If you are able to contribute, healthy snacks like crackers, fruit snacks, etc. would be much appreciated.
