November/December Book BINGO!
This month's project is a combined November AND December Project. You will be reading many different books. Your Book BINGO will need to be fully completed by Monday, December 17th. (Bring your Book BINGO board back to school on November 19th to show what you have accomplished up to that point.) Please complete 5 squares in a row by Dec. 17th. BINGO!
Square changes are allowed but must be discussed with your teacher in advance. In the past, we have had some students who want to take on the challenge of BLACKOUT. Those who accomplish BLACKOUT (all squares completed ) will earn a special activity.
Once a book is read, make sure you record the name of the book and the author's name on the back of the BINGO SHEET. What a fun way to read many genres!

This year our classroom is participating in the BOOK IT! Program to encourage your child to find the joy in reading. The mission of the program is to turn "have to read" into "want to read" and the only way to get better at reading is to take the time to do it! Information was sent home October 4 as to how the program works, along with ideas on how you can get involved at home. So please READ! READ! READ! every school night (weekends too to make up for school nights you may miss) and record how long you read and what you read on your monthly Calendar in your planner.
Please checkout daily new ST Math assignments to be completed at home. Thank you
