Tissue Boxes for the Library

Hi Families!

Here is a quick request from Ms. Hebert, our librarian.

Calling All Tissue Boxes!
The UMS library is in need of MANY empty rectangular tissue boxes to use as shelf blocks.  These will be placed behind smaller books on shelves to prevent them from being pushed back too far for children to easily reach.  Please consider sending in your empty boxes with your students-- we could use as many as 50!  Thank you in advance for any help you can provide!

Narrative Writing

In writing, we have been working on narratives. (2.W.3)  A narrative is a story about an event in your life.  We are learning to add details and feelings with a reaction. For example, "I was so excited when I saw the first snowflake fall from the sky that I jumped up and down and clapped my hands!   We will learn how to wrap up our stories with interesting endings this week.
