Hello Families and Friends, 

 
Here are a few upcoming events and news on what we have been up to:
 
Last week we had the pleasure of welcoming 3 authors to Marcy- Nate Ball, Tim Green, and Tom Watson.  It was fun to hear them talk about their books and how they feel about being authors.
 
We met with our 8th grade Big Buddies on Friday.  We worked on a Thanksgiving project together.  The students are really starting to bond with their buddies!
 
We finished our Structures of Life Science kit (crayfish and beetles) and will be starting our Science of Sound kit this week.  We also are working on a Map Reading unit in Social Studies.
 
I sent home the first 3rd grade Book Report project on Friday.  Please feel free to email me if you are having a hard time finding a book or figuring out the level of the book.  The basic idea is for the students to pick a book that is not too hard or too easy.  Students will have time to read their book during school but the book report sheet and the project should be done at home. Projects are due December 1st.
 
Literacy Night is coming up on November 20 from 5:30-7:30pm.  It will be a fun night to learn some new activities you can do at home for reading, writing, and spelling.  I will be teaching a spelling game.  A dinner of grilled cheese and tomato soup will be served.
 
Thanks for being such a great group of parents!
