I feel like I was just exclaiming about how it was already November!  How the time flies when every day is packed with learning!

Students, please remember that if you do the following homonyms game (click here), and get a parent signature saying that you did it for at least 5 minutes, you will get a $20 bonus tomorrow!  I also have a figurative language game (it goes over simile, metaphor, personification–making non-human things seem human, and hyperbole–an exaggeration) that if you also play and get a signature for at least 15 minutes, you’d get another $50 bonus on top of the $20 for homonyms!

Additionally, as I’m certain all you parents know, 5 very unexpected and very exciting additions to our class joined us on Friday:  our gerbils had babies!  Once the babies are weaned from their mother, we will be giving 4 of the babies and the father away to the first 5 students that have permission slips signed from parents and turned in!  The babies will probably be ready to go after Christmas break.  

Finally, we are going to be doing another class store soon!  If you have any small items that you can donate for students to purchase with class money, please send them in as soon as possible.  Thank you so much!

1) Math (5-7): p. 117 all, p. 118 evens.  Redo the unit 4 test and other low scoring quizzes!
2) Read 20 minutes and get it signed–remember that every day read must be signed!! 

3) Spelling due Wednesday
4) Bring class store donations if you can!

Items of Business
