Spelling Bees!

These were the closest spelling bees I have ever had! These two students battled it out and after our 5 bees were tied 21 to 21! In the tie-breaker spell out Parker came out ahead and will be our representative in the school bee. I am looking forward to having some of these students in my spell bowl team in a couple years!

Christmas Gift Exchange

The students are bringing home a note today about our Christmas gift exchange.  The gift should be a neutral gift that could work for both a boy and girl. It should be $5 or less.  These are due Dec. 12.

Volunteers for Dec. 1-5

I know it's a little early but I would like to ask for volunteers for the week of Dec. 1-5.  Our schedule has been a little different here lately and will also be different during the next week since it's only 3 school days.  Hopefully the week after Thanksgiving we will get back to a little more of a normal schedule. :)

Spelling Bees

We will begin our class spelling bees very soon! We will start by using the spelling lists we've had so far this year. We will have 5 bees and I will record points for each bee. The student with the most points at the end of the 5 bees will represent our class in the school bee.
