Friday, Nov. 29

1.  Holes novel- read to page 50 by tuesday if possible.
2.  Poetry- work on pictures and colors for all poems.
3.  Next Friday, we will have some activities with full CANS...soup cans, chili   cans, sauce cans, etc..  We will do some soup can science and art with the full cans. We will then place them in a box and bring to the Food Bank closer to Christmas.   Students can bring in 1, 2, 3 or more cans(and other food like pasta if you like), and only if they are able.   In addition to us creating a Food Bank box of food, we will also make a small donation with whatever loonies and twoonies come in. I will start the fund with my 10 twoonies and hope that some kids are able to bring in one loonie or twoonie each to contribute. I know many of you do special things for those with much less at Christmas, so please do not feel that you have to send in anything. I will bring extra cans if you choose not to send any.  No problem. Thanks!
