We decorated our pumpkins on Friday. They turned out really cute. If you get a chance you should stop by and check them out. We also enjoyed some delicious Crock Pot Applesauce. I would like to say thank you to everyone who helped with these projects and those who sent supplies for the pumpkins and the applesauce.

The recipe we used for the applesauce:

10 large cooking apples, peeled, cored & sliced or cut in chunks

1/2 cup water

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 cup sugar

Put all ingredients into crockpot. Should be about 3/4 full. Cover and cook on low 8 to 10 hours (high 3 to 4 hours).

We enjoyed learning about Fire Safety today. The firefighters from Canton and Center Pigeon Fire Departments visited our classroom and brought their trucks for us to see. The highlight was the smoke house. I encourage you to talk with your child about what they learned today, it just may save a life! Make sure that your family has a MEETING PLACE!

WoW!  One-Fourth of our year is already over! The time has flown by and the students have worked very hard. Please do not forget to read during Fall Beak. It is very important that students maintain the progress they have made. It would also be helpful if they practiced math facts. The quicker they can add two, single digit numbers, the easier it will be to add 2 digit numbers. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful break and I look forward to seeing you back in October!

We learned how to divide shapes into equal parts.  (Fractions)

In Reading Workshop we learned that sometimes readers lose focus. We learned how to get ourselves back on track:
*Re-read the part
*Take a stretch break
*Make a movie in your mind
