## 3-Ellis Tuesday, October 10th

Welcome back! I hope everyone had a fantastic long Thanksgiving weekend.

Here is our song for the week.

**Thanksgiving Day**

by John Forster & Tom Chapin

**When we were farmers we hauled in the harvest ****And founded Thanksgiving Day.**

**With food in the shed for the winter ahead **

**We would gather together to say**

*Thanks for our health. Thanks for our hearth And ***--*** the bounty that grows from the ground. **With our loved ones near we bless the year **That's brought us safely 'round.*

**Now we are shoppers. We drive to the market. ****The farm seems a light year away.**

**Still, every October we pause to remember ****That time-honored, old-fashioned day.**

*Thanks for our health. Thanks for our hearth And the bounty that grows from the ground. With our loved ones near we bless the year. **That's brought us safely 'round.*

**Everything changes, yes, even Thanksgiving. Let's rededicate this old day**

**To helping the hungry, the poor and the homeless ****So all may be able to say--**

*Thanks for our health. Thanks for our hearth And the bounty that grows from the ground. **With our loved ones near we bless the year **That's brought us safely 'round.*

*With our loved ones near we bless the year **That's brought us safely 'round.*

As per blog note, our Rock Walk has been rescheduled. We want a nice sunny day. Hopefully we will get one next Tuesday.

Literacy - we got new spelling words for the week. We hope to begin our Daily 5 Literacy rounds next week, along with our "LLI" (Leveled Literacy Intervention) reading groups. Our focus in Work On Writing is on fluency and punctuation; mainly capitals and periods.

Math - what's is a whole number? Why aren't fractions whole numbers? What are they if they aren't whole numbers? What else is there?

SS - we continue with mapping. This week we are looking at a mapping scale. So, if one centimetre on the map equals 100 km in real life, how many km's is 10 cm? Hmm?

Science - the whole world rocks!! Hmm? So, what do I know about rocks anyway?

Good to see all of your bright smiling faces again this morning. Have a great evening. See you tomorrow!
