Degrees and Certifications:
Thank you to our fabulous room parents and volunteers for hosting a fun and memorable
Halloween party! What a beautiful day it was for a parade!
Thank you to our volunteers who chaperoned our field trip to the beautiful Duke Farms. I
encourage you to take a family trip there to enjoy nature and watch your child’s curiosity as
he/she observes the world around them.
In reading and writing this month, we will continue using strategies for making meaning of
unknown words. In writing, we will focus on the many crafts writers use when writing poems.
In math, I will share the results of the Fall Benchmark with you at conferences. Our next topic is
addition and subtraction of 3-digit numbers with regrouping. If your child does not have
automatic recall of their addition and subtraction math facts to 20, I strongly encourage you
to help your child practice at home. Resources for this can be found on my staff webpage
located on the homepage of OHES, or on our Math Supervisor’s, Jess Grover, homepage.
I look forward to discussing your child’s progress at conference! Please remember that
conferences run for 15 minutes, please arrive on time to keep the tight schedule going.
