November 12

We had a GREAT beginning to our week!  We started off our day counting all of the nonparishable items that were donated for the food pantry!  The kids worked with a partner to make a group of 10.  Then we counted all the 10s and got a grand total of 284!  That was just for Monday!  Keep sending in your items!
We read Thank You, Thanksgiving and talked about what it means to be thankful.  We also shared out some things that we are thankful for.  This week we will be creating a list of five things that we are happy are in our lives. 
In math we reviewed our 2D and 3D shapes.  This week we will be comparing 2D to 3D shapes and talking about their attributes. 
Our center room has been transformed into a Native American village!  We visited a longhouse, a tepee, and a hogan today!  They will also be creating some Indian corn art.  We also read a very interesting nonfiction book about Native Americans.  We learned that the Pueblo Indians lived in adobes that required them to climb a ladder to hole in their roof in order to enter their home!  We also learned that one tribe hunted whales from a canoe! 
The most exciting part of the day was when our friend Ethan lost his first tooth!!!  He is expecting the Tooth Fairy to shell out some BIG bucks!

Thank you to all who helped make this year's basket auction & chili cook-off a success!  I felt so lucky to see so many of my families on Friday night!  You all contributed something to this amazing event; time, donations, food, or simply coming to hang out!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!  I couldn't resist snapping this cute pic of the Holle Fam!
Cowboy Mortenson has just one more thing to add....
"Well YEEHAW!!  Did y'all hear that Mrs. Weishaar's class is the rootin' tootin-est best class in the West??  Her parents can COOK!  MMM-mmm, the Hamiltons came in 3rd and Amy McGlinn had the prize winning pot-o-chili!  Way to go partnas...not too shabby!"
In all seriousness, thank you!  I am going to buy our class a camera!  This way I can continue to post all of your cutie pie kids on the blog without schlepping my camera back and forth!
