We Had a Normal Week! Weekly Wrap Up

We finally had a full, normal week of school with no delays or cancellations!! It's been quite the winter, and I was glad to get back into the swing of things! Now, if it can just warm up a little bit, we can get outside to burn off some energy!

We finished learning about 3-D shapes this week. Your students brought in different examples from home. I had full intentions of taking pictures of these objects...and my camera died 2 kids in!

We took our chapter test yesterday, and those scores will be posted on the parent portal this morning. We are going to be learning about positional words next week. (Next to, beside, above, below)

In Science, we finished our study of the sky. We wrote an informational piece about the moon as a class. We sounded out some words, and some kids knew how to spell some of the bigger words from books they've read - like sometimes! I was impressed. Keep working on writing with your kids at home - spelling of most words doesn't matter, but sight words should be spelled correctly.
We also learned about the phases of the moon.

We learned about stars and constellations on Wednesdays. We got to make our own constellations, which are hanging in our windows right now!

We also learned about dental health this week. We talked about what is good for our teeth and things we should avoid. Colgate sends a pack every year with supplies, so you should have seen a toothbrush come home on Friday.

Next week, we are learning about community helpers. We will being a research project as a class to use different resources to answer questions.

Thanks for reading - as always, if you have any questions, please let me know!
