This week we will be going on our walking field trip to the New Boston Historical Society. This is on Tuesday afternoon. If you have not signed the permission slip, please return it on Monday. If you have misplaced it, please send in a note on Monday indicating that your child has permission to attend. Children without a signed permission slip or note will be unable to participate.
Last week was a rich week of learning and growing. We celebrated our 100th day with activities centering around the number 100! Children sorted, exercised, and created all with the number 100 in mind.
Our Valentine Presentation was a wonderful tribute to special family members. Later that day, children became Postal Workers eagerly delivering their Valentines to their friends. I love the hustle and bustle and eagerness as kids happily search for their friends' mailboxes! Giving and kindness are in the air.
Thank you too for all of the treats! It was delicious!
We are learning about animal features. On Friday, we read about animal teeth. We then answered the question, "What if we had animal teeth?" We then created pictures of ourselves with different animal teeth. Imagine having shark teeth, crocodile teeth, bat teeth, camel teeth...
Our week was also filled with learning about Abraham Lincoln, and finding equivalent names for numbers. Math homework this week will focus on equivalent names. A letter explaining this will go home with the math homework.
Please Note: There has been a change to our school-wide Spirit Day. Instead of Character Day, it will be Famous Person Day! I can't wait to see what famous people head through the classroom door on Friday!
Lastly, I am still looking for a few report card envelopes. If you have not returned the envelope, please sign and return. If you have misplaced it, please send a note in that indicates you received the report card. Thank you!
