This week we have continued talking about feelings/emotions. We have added tired/sleepy into the mix since that is something a lot of our friends are familiar with 🙂 We have continued to talk about sad as well. Everyday, we sort our pictures between happy/sad and then happy/tired.
Also, tomorrow is Valentine’s day! We have had so much fun making our mailboxes in class. Please send in your valentines for the class tomorrow.
Thursday, 2/15, is Family Fun and Fitness Night at KES located in the gym from 6:30-7:30. I hope to see you there!
February is here! With it we have started talking about feelings and opposites. We started out today with reading The I Love You Book by Todd Parr. Then we sang a song about many different feelings; happy, mad, scared, and sleepy. We ended with an activity on the Promethean Board where we sorted how our friends were feeling. Did they feel happy? Or did they feel sad?
This month we will also learn about a new letter, V; number, 6; color, pink; shape, heart; and sign; “look.”
We have added a new book to our morning meeting: The Jacket I Wear In The Snow. It is helping us learn clothing words and what we need to wear to go outside to play in cold weather!
Also, I will be sending the home permission slip for our next two CBIs this week. They will be to the Twin Hickory Library in February and Target in March.
Save the Date: February is Random Acts of Kindness Month, and our school will be collecting gently used or new winter coats, boots, and shoes (all sizes – child to adult) to donate to the HCPS Parent and Families Department. If you are cleaning out closets, then we hope you would consider holding any coats, boots and shoes until Feb and donate them to our school during our Feb. coat, boots and shoe drive. Collection bins will be out in the main hallway the first of February for your child to place any donated items. Donations are welcomed from Feb. 1st-Feb. 14th.
The KES International Festival will be here before you know it!
Today was such a fun day! We started off our morning with a school wide tacky door contest. We traced our hands on wrapping paper and put our hand prints all over the door.
Later in the day, fifth graders came down to our room and sang their own versions of “The 12 Days of Christmas.” We really enjoyed hearing them sing to us 🙂
Enjoy your Winter Break!
Today we had a fun holiday science experiment! We separated out small bells and big bells and put them in two different containers. Then we added sprite to see what would happen!
It was so cool to watch the bells “dance” up! We talked about how the little bells danced up and down much faster than the bigger bells. We all had a lot of fun! A verse of “Jingle Bells” even broke out 🙂
As a reminder, tomorrow is the Jack Frost Jog and Jam! It will also be our class party.
Wow, how much fun is snow!?! We did not go outside to recess today since our playground was covered in snow… instead we brought some snow into our room and made our very own snowman! We talked about how the snow felt in hour hands and we took turns forming the different parts of our snowman’s body. Then each child picked one part of the snowman to put on; eyes, nose, buttons, arms, etc. We had so much fun exploring the snow in our room and making the snowman! More pictures can be found under the 2017-2018 picture link 🙂
Thank you for sharing what holidays your family celebrates! We have started to learn about different winter holidays as well as many that you all celebrate through out the year!
In addition to to talking about holidays, we are learning about the letter M, color green, and sign “more.” We are reviewing our past shapes and numbers this month.
Just as a reminder, we will be filming our adapted yoga video on Thursday. 🙂
As a reminder; tomorrow, November 7th, is a student holiday.
What a busy week ahead in Room 110!
We will continue to learn about Native Americans as well as start talking about Thanksgiving this week.
Our second CBI is on November 9th. We are going to Publix! While we are there, we will have our own grocery list and handle our own money. We will also work on navigating a grocery store and learn where to find certain items.
The following day, November 10th, is our school’s Veterans Day Assembly at 8:30. Please make sure to wear red, white, or blue!
Also, Our KES community is partnering with Blue Star Families and the USO to collect items to be sent to our deployed troops. Please look for the information that was sent home in Tuesday’s orange folders. The items we are hoping to collect are travel size personal care items, snacks and reading materials. The collection period ends on Friday, Nov. 10th
