Still waiting for Spring to arrive! We had another fabulous week in room 135! Already looking forward to next week with our field trip AND Field Day! Please read below for important information on both events.
Field trip to the Children’s Museum is on Wednesday. We will be leaving school at 9:15 and coming back around 1pm. Please pack a disposable bag lunch (nut free) for your child. We will have a hands on economic lesson and enjoy some exploration time.
Field Day on Friday! This is always a fun day at KES! Mr. Runk has planned a fun filled day for all the students. We will be outside playing games the majority of the day. Depending on the weather, you may want to send sunscreen and a water bottle with your child. We will be eating our lunch in the classroom. The lunch choices for Friday will be different. The choices are: turkey and cheese sandwich, mini burger, or healthy day meal. There will not be any “extras” available.
Highlights from the week:
~In language arts, we continued our focus on blends. We wrote a spring story, matched blends with pictures, unscrambled sentences, and made a squiggle story! Next week we will learn about ABC order and compound words.
~In math, we started our unit on subtraction. To introduce this concept, we played musical chairs and the class had the write the subtraction problem on their white board. We also played a game where we lost teeth called subtraction extraction. Today we came up with some subtraction stories on our own and then drew out the problem. Next week we will continue with subtraction.
~In social studies we focused on maps and globes. We discussed the differences between the two, how to read a map, and bird’s eye view. Please remember to send in a stamped self-addressed envelope. Please write on the envelope the address of the person your child is writing to. Thanks!
Have a great weekend!
