A huge thank you to Karen Bovee for sewing new beautiful slipcovers for our little library furniture and curtains for our shelves to conceal the blocks and books until needed.
I am so proud of all the children for remembering the Book Buddies daily and the homework weekly. We are getting into a regular routine which is so helpful for the children. During reading we are working on Rhyming Books, Journals, Handwriting Without Tears, play dough alphabet, Starfall on the computer, Smarty Pants School on the iPad and much more.
In math we are working on Patterns and our monthly Math Journals.
We are spending a lot of time establishing routines and getting familiar with our Conscious Discipline program. As a part of that program, please send in a family photo that we can display on the bulletin board. It would be helpful if your photo was neatly labeled with each family member's name so we can identify everyone.
On November 17th we will be visiting Alice's Place at 1 Gun Ranch in Malibu. It is a bio-dynamic organic farm. Paperwork will be coing home on Monday and we will need drivers.
It has been great to have the volunteers starting in the classroom. I can't wait till we are in full-swing.
I am really looking forward to a lovely evening Monday night at Natasha's home for our Room K dinner (thanks Natasha!). I will see you all then.
