Classroom Happenings 1-22-08
I am sorry about not having the newsletter ready on Friday. With an afternoon meeting on Thursday, my week got all thrown off.
I hope all of you enjoyed the little bit of snow we got on Saturday. I am just glad it snowed just a little or there would have been a lot of upset children.
Thanks to all the parents who sent in snacks for our 100th day celebration. It was a celebration all day!!!
Today we learned about Martin Luther King and his life. We also celebrated the 101 day of school by watching "101 Dalmatians". We couldn't have recess anyway, so it turned out well.
Starting tomorrow we will be learning about Fossils by learning about Dinosaurs and Rocks. We will be learning facts and doing some experiments. The students will really enjoy this.
In Math, we will be learning about place value and number patterns. We will also be reviewing addition and subtraction.
Please keep reading with your child at home. The more practice the better!!! Also if your child does not return their Reading Folder daily they will have to sit out at Recess for 5 minutes. It is crucial they have their materials in their groups. The same will happen for those who are not turning in their Spelling homework on Fridays. Those that do, will be rewarded!!!
