It's hard to believe this is the last week of February! Where is this school year going? We have a very busy next few weeks ahead of us. We are constantly learning new material so it is important to remind your child to follow our be safe, be respectful, and be responsible rules!
Here is what our week of learning will look like this week:
|Reading and Writing Workshop- We will continue our unit on folktales. This week we will focus on fables! The students love reading fables and when we discuss the moral of the story, I love how they are relating it to their own lives! We have had some great conversations!|
We have also started planning our fractured fairy tale writing! Ask your child which fairy tale they are using and how they are going to change it for their very own fractured fairy tale!
Science/ Social Studies- This week we will continue our unit on maps and globes. We will work on reading a map and creating our own pirate map!
Math- We are beginning our unit on fractions. This week we will focus on equal and unequal parts. We will also focus on halves, thirds, fourths, fifths, and sixths.
Important Information: We will take our spring and class pictures on March 7 . I am not sure of the time but hopefully before lunch :) I am super excited to announce we will have a student teacher who will begin next week! Her name is Rachel Sorensen and she will join our class on Monday. She will begin by observing our routines and procedures and then she will begin teaching lessons that we have planned together. I am excited to share our excitement of learning with her. If you are in the building, please feel free to say hi to her!
STEAM Supplies: As usual, we need paper towel rolls and toilet paper rolls! For our STEAM project this week, we will also need wooden craft sticks, tissue paper, and plastic Easter eggs! You can send those in so we can have them for Friday.
Class Brighteners: We would like to wish Lori a very Happy Birthday! She will celebrate her birthday this week! We would like to say Congratulations to Serenity! She lost a tooth this week! Our Pleasing Penmanship Award goes to Farrah and Tyler this week! These two always put forth their best effort in everything they do!
