Hello! It’s hard to believe that it is the end of another week. Time sure does fly when you are having fun.
We had a lot of fun reading the story Mrs. Wishy Washy. We had so much fun in fact that we asked if we could read it to Ms. Henderson’s Kindergarten and First Grade class. They thought it was pretty funny.
We also enjoyed making our own kinetic sand this week. It’s not as easy to clean as the regular stuff, but it smells better! They have found a new interest in playing with the sand because it was made by us in the classroom. (And maybe because it smells so good).
Our science unit this month has been about weather and seasons. This week we have started our four season trees by painting the tree trunks brown. Each day we will paint the leaves on for each of the seasons. It’s a lengthy project but I am excited to see the finished product. Sorry about all the paint. I hope it is washable like the label says.
IXL for math has been going so well. Just the other day Mr. Mattos was in our room and he was just amazed at how well the children are doing on their math skills! I love that it is individualized and each child can work at each skill at their own pace.
Parent conferences will be coming up in March, and I look forward to meeting with you again. In the meantime, I will be calling to check in early next week.
Have a fantastic weekend.
