February 3rd - 7th

This week we spent a lot time working on adding two digit numbers together with the Bank Game.  The students work with a partner to create two numbers and gather the correct materials.  They combined the materials and in some cases exchanged units for ten sticks and ten sticks for hundred squares.  I'm so impressed by how quickly the students can follow the steps when working with the Bank Game.

This week in science we learned about ramps.  We learned that a ramp is an incline plane which things can travel up and down on easier.  The students were placed in small groups and were given various items to test on the ramp.  We placed the ramp at different inclines and tested to see if the item would slide down the ramp.  It was so great to see how the groups worked together and decided who would test each item and the order they would test.  It's so nice to see five and six year old children problem solve on their own and work together as a team! 

A huge thank you to all our parents who came this morning for Parent Visitation Day!  The boys and girls had so much fun showing their parents all the things we do in the classroom!


Please remember to send in your re-registration forms for next year!

Please send in your Valentine's by Thursday, February 13th!

January 27th - 31st

This week the Kindergarten students worked on creating winter sentences with the Movable Alphabet.  The boys and girls came up with a list of words that have to do with winter. Though we haven't had much in the way of snow, the students came up with some great ideas if we do get a snowstorm!

The PK and Kindergarten students did it again!  Another successful collection drive!  Our HCA families donated 117 coats!  The boys and girls sorted the coats by adult and children sizes.  The coats will help those in need this winter.  Thank you for donating!

For Community time, the boys and girls participated in a Hispanic Heritage Celebration!
They made maracas, had a Latin dance party and listened to the story of the "Hungry Caterpillar" in Spanish while coloring pictures of items listed with Spanish words!  A big thank you to our Diversity Committee for organizing our special day!  The students really enjoyed the activities!

A special thank you to Braela's dad for coming in to read to Braela and the class on her birthday!  The boys and girls really enjoyed the story and the treat bags!
Happy Birthday, Braela!
