Lice was reported from our class. All students at school today were checked. Please let me and Suzi know if you find lice on your child. Thank you.
I am reaching out to see if anyone is interested in helping create an auction item from our class that will be raffled off. Tickets will be sold before the auction and you do not to be present to win. In the past my class has created a painted coffee table with a collage that students have painted, quilts, and a hand print chair. Mariah Lander from ARK is working with parents that want to help out with this project. Let me know ASAP and we can get going on a project. Thank you!
We are back to having half the class go to cooking class on Mondays and half the class go to garden class on Tuesdays.
Report cards will be sent home on Friday. I have been pulling students one on one for individual math assessments. We also have been doing whole group writing assessments.
Bring Sharing on Fridays. Blue Folder and Book Bags due back as well.
We have been working on shape attributes (sorting and graphing). Today we sorted by unequal and equal sides.
Social Studies: Map and Globe skills
We have studied the 7 continents and 5 oceans this week. We are starting to map our classroom and our school. We are going to focus on our place (our town, county and state). Where is California? What ocean are we closest to?
