Hello Families =)
The kids were awesome this week! They even earned their second marble party! We will have our marble party on Monday, January 29th. We will be watching a movie while enjoying some ice cream! I am so proud of them! They have been working so hard and growing as learners.
To celebrate our successful "How To" writing, we enjoyed peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, a bowl of cereal, and toast after the kids wrote how to prepare each of them. This helped them see how specific they have to be when teaching someone how to do something. Our next "How To" writing will begin with this weekend's homework assignment you will find in your child's white binder. Make sure to take a look.
All of the kids loved math this week because we did a lot of hands-on activities to assess their flat and solid shape knowledge. Today, they built shapes out of toothpicks and marshmallows. They may have sampled a few =)
In science this week, we began learning about animals. You will be hearing more about them soon! To celebrate learning about animals, we will be testing our knowledge at the Safari Park or the Zoo in a couple of months.
I changed out the book bags today. If you notice your child has some of the same books, please make sure to practice reading them more. I give them the next level book when they are able to read their books with ease and a good understanding of what the book is about.
***Please remember that the 100th Day of School is this coming Wednesday the 31st of January***
I am reminding you of this because all of the students will be dressing up as a 100 year old! I hope you have fun with this!
Have a great weekend!
