Dolphin Swimmers Literature – No Homework
This week in Literature we read Zathura by Chris Van Allsburg. This is a sequel to Jumanji, the book we read last week.
Everyone had the option of doing several activities – cutting a spiral Galaxy Mobile, a Space Adventure Word Search, a Galaxy Maze, or coloring a robot (a character in the story). You will probably find at least one of these items in your child’s backpack.
A special “thank you” to Van’s mom, Kate, for bringing in doughnuts to celebrate Van’s birthday – what a treat!
Scholastic Bookclub Flyers:
I sent home the new Scholastic Bookclub flyers on Friday. If you are interested in ordering any books, go to scholastic.com/bookclubs. Create a Parent Account using the code TC42M (this will link you with ODE’s account). Order books through the Scholastic website (no shipping fees) by Nov. 24. All books will be delivered to ODE and will be given to your kids during Literature class to take home (I make sure they go right in their backpacks so they get home safely). Orders should arrive before the Holiday Break.
Let me know if you have any questions.
