Happy St. Patrick’s Day! The students enjoyed green Jello and whipped cream while coloring their rainbows, green Hawaiian Punch after running laps, and Lucky Charms cereal for our math sorting fun. We had fun preparing to catch a Leprechaun today. We built and set traps. And when we returned from Music, the Leprechaun had messed up our room and left us jewels and coins, and LOTS of glitter! We discovered many different sized small green footprints and decided there may have been more than one Leprechaun.
It was also a MAGICAL week of fairy tales! We read many classic Fairy Tale Stories like Three Little Pigs, Little Red Hen, and The Three Bears to answer questions like: Who were the important characters in the story? Where/When was the setting? What was the problem? How did they solve it? We also continued to work with multi-syllabic words and created/spelled words by listening for their sounds, and mastered their new sight words: she, with, her. In Math, the students continued to read and write and represent numbers from 0 through 20 using MobyMax. In Social Studies, we looked at simple maps and globes and Google Earth (they LOVED this) to develop an awareness that a map is a drawing of a place to show where things are located and that a globe is a round model of the Earth.
Next week is a busy week with our Book Fair! Here is a message from Ms. Cline, our Librarian: The Scholastic book fair will be at Trevvett next week March 18-22nd. Monday and Tuesday will be preview days where the students can browse the book fair and create a wish list of books they would like to purchase. Wednesday after school from 3-5 will be a LAMP EVENT. LAMP stands for Library, Art, Music and P.E. Our LAMP team will be in the cafeteria with fun games, prizes and a photo booth! Mrs. Broudy will also be stopping by to read a story to our shoppers in the library! So come Wednesday to have some fun and shop the book fair. Thursday night the PTO Spaghetti Dinner starts at 5:30 and our book fair will be open from 5-6 to allow families to shop the book fair before enjoying a delicious spaghetti dinner. I hope to see you next week at one of our fun book fair events and thank you for supporting the Trevvett Library!
