Hello all and Happy Tuesday!  I hope you've stayed dry and warm! 

We went over our multiplication project which as passed out today and began our timed tests that we will be taking every day.  A very important packet is coming home about our multiplication project.  Students are given templates to follow to create specialized flashcards for each set of numbers (2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s, 8s, 9s, 10s, 11s, and 12s).  These templates can be cut out and traced onto posterboard or construction paper and need to be kept together with metal rings or brad fasteners (NO STAPLES OR YARN as they fall apart too easily) If you are unable to obtain any of these materials, please let me know as soon as possible.  The sets of 2s, 5s, and 10s are due to me to be checked NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9th.  Please join us in our effort to ensure your student memorizes his/her multiplication facts.  These can be done in the car on the way to the grocery or other destination, at the store, while taking a shower/bath, etc. (anywhere that there is some downtime...squeeze 'em in!!!). 
HOMEWORK: complete timed test with an adult.  Students should get 3minutes to complete as many of the 50 multiplication facts that they can.  In order for this to count, these tests MUST be signed. 

Students continued reading about the election with Mr. Featherston and will be voting in a blind election at the start of next week.
HOMEWORK: READING LOGS for Reading Groups!!!

Have a terrific evening!  Remember, NO costumes tomorrow, please!!!
Mrs. Thomas
