Newsletter for the Week of March 9th, 2020
New Seats and a New Student
Last Friday the kids got to sit wherever they wanted which was very exciting for them. Today we got new assigned seats. We are also welcoming a new student. T’Juan began in our class today so welcome to him and his family! This now puts us at 26 students in the classroom. Please remember that when it comes to snack.
Take Home Books
Take home books will be going home today and are due back next Monday.
This Wednesday is late start day. Your child will make Wednesday’s lunch choice on Tuesday so please let them know if they need to order lunch. We will head right to lunch and recess when they arrive. We will have gym on Wednesday instead of music like normal.
St. Patrick’s Day
Next week is St. Patrick’s Day. I love celebrating this day in school. It is just a fun day! We will be participating in The Tasting of the Greens. I will be assigning green food items to different students to bring in next Tuesday. Each student will try each food and then give their opinion of the food whether they liked it or not. There is also information on a leprechaun trap family project going home today. Each year on St. Patrick’s Day a sneaky leprechaun comes to my classroom and maybe this will be the year we will catch him.
Don’t forget to keep track of reading minutes at home for March is Reading month. Reading slips are due each Monday. You can read to your child or they can read to you.
This Friday is PJ Day for reading month. Your child can also bring one stuffed animal to hang out with for the day.
Each year The Colin Dembo Foundation gives out school money for a literacy project we will complete in the spring. Each child gets to create a hard cover book of their own. We are doing the read-a-thon to give some money back. If each child donated $3-$5 dollars that would be wonderful and anything over that would be a cherry on top!
This week, we are talking about social intelligence. We will talk about being aware of other’s thoughts and feelings and trying to understand why they do the things they do.
