* We started the Sumdog website math practice. Students can play/practice at home with their own logins and passwords. The kids LOVE it so far!
* We completed our pumpkin globes. See the website for some great pictures.
* We carved our own class pumpkin. He'll stay cool in the fridge over the weekend and help decorate our classroom next week.
* I'm going to ask the kids to bring in an empty toilet paper/paper towel tube by Wednesday. Set them aside if you have any this weekend. If you have more than one, we might need some extras, so the more the merrier.
