Add It Up Song

As you know, we have currently been talking about addition with and without regrouping in math class. This is a fun song that we made to help students remember how to add two numbers with and without regrouping. Make sure that your child shows you the hand motions that go with it!  (I apologize in advance for it getting stuck in your head! :P)

Christmas Child- Updated 11/23

Purchased items in green. Reserved items in red.

Our class will be sponsoring an eight year old boy for Christmas.  You may wish to purchase something for him that you think an eight year old would enjoy.  We also have a wish list of some items he needs and would like for Christmas. Please send all items into school unwrapped.

I plan to update my blog daily with gifts that have been purchased for our child. You can also look for updates in our homework folders on Fridays. If you would like to purchase a specific item off the list, feel free to send me a quick note to check if someone else has already purchased it.  If no one has then I will reserve that item for you, if you desire.

Any money that is collected will be compiled to purchase remaining items off his wish list.  Thank you for helping to make this a merry Christmas for him.
