Classroom Updates

Hello Parents,

Our grass is growing and so are the Caterpillars!

We are continuing on with Reggie Rainbow and the children have tried “orange” foods and today they will be tasting “yellow” foods.  For orange they tried oranges, carrots and peaches.  For yellow foods they will try bananas and yellow peppers.  Make sure to ask them what they liked 🙂

In a week and a half we will be starting Home Visits.  We will be scheduling a time to come and visit at your home like we did in the Fall.  We will be doing this on the 23rd, 24th and 25th of May.

Thanks,

Mrs. Lott and Ms. Jaafar

Spring Time

Hello Parents,
It’s May and we are into Spring time fun! We began by reading the book “Fran’s Flower”. We have been talking about flowers blooming and what it takes for flowers and grass to grow. We also read “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”. So, we have been talking about caterpillars and butterflies. We actually have real live caterpillars in our classroom and we are waiting for them to eat enough so that they can be ready to form their cacoon. We will release the butterflies on the playground once they have formed!
We have also been talking about “eating the rainbow”. We are experimenting with tasting different fruits and vegetables. For RED we tried tomatoes (which almost all of the children liked) and we also tried beets which none of the kids liked. At least they tasted them which I told them was very brave of them to try something new. I was proud of them for trying it. Next up is ORANGE!

January Happenings

Hello Parents,

January was an exciting month for us.  We had a fun Field Trip to the Health Exploration Station and learned about our bodies and staying healthy.  Topics included healthy eating, clean hands and brushing teeth.  Our trip ended with getting to interact with different health exhibits in the hands-on area.  It was so much fun.  See the pictures attached.

We also had a Parent Meeting where we focused on different Math activities, many which could be continued at home.  Don’t forget to play the board game at home and talk to your child about colors, shapes and letters all around.  You can count cereal pieces and put them on a string, they could also make a pattern using colored cereal or different kinds of cereal.  Make learning fun 🙂

 

 

Busy Week

Hello Parents!

I hope everyone enjoyed the Snow Day yesterday!  I was outside sledding at the hill with my own two kids.  When we got home we made some hot chocolate to warm up.

Because this is a different kind of week I just wanted to send out a reminder.

Tomorrow is our field trip to the Scholastic Book Warehouse. Parents and children may ride together on the bus.  We are sending permission slips home today please return them tomorrow.

The next day, Thursday, is our classroom Parent Meeting.  Parents and children come together to do a fun activity together.  We will be making a Gingerbread House!

See you soon!

Wayne County Regional Enhancement Education Millage Proposal

 

School districts in Wayne County have placed a proposal on the November 8th ballot to provide added funding for our schools. It is the “Regional Enhancement Millage Proposal.”

If approved by the entire county, the 2 mil proposal will generate approximately $6.2 million from Dearborn but the District will receive $7.8 million in additional funding for our schools.  Money would go to local schools starting this year and the millage expires after six years.  Read More

Math and Science

Dear Parents,

The kids have been busy in the classroom exploring with Science and Math activities.

Math

We have explored Apples.  We talked about red, yellow and green apples and how they taste and look a little different.  We did an apple-taste-test and the kids decided which apple they liked best.  They colored an apple to look like their favorite apple and we created a class graph!

Science

We used a Pumpkin for a Science experiment.  The children made predictions as to whether the pumpkin would “sink” or “float” in a tub of water.  They put their pumpkin picture where they thought it would go and then….we tested it out.

When we did the experiment we found out that….a pumpkin “floats” in the water!

We had so much fun exploring!

See you all on Monday AND don’t forget, no school on Tuesday due to Election Day!

Welcome to Our Classroom Blog

Hello Parents,

I just wanted to welcome you all to our classroom blog.  This is where I will post classroom-news updates and pictures of our learning experiences throughout the school year.

We have had a great start to the school year.  The students are all learning the classroom rules and expectations.  As we talked about at the parent meeting, your child is now becoming familiar with the classroom routine by using our interactive daily schedule that is posted.  They are also gaining lots of independence!

It is so exciting to get to work with your child and see how they grow.  I love learning about their interests and experiences.

We have had great attendance so far, keep it up!

See you all on Monday 🙂

Mrs. Lott and Ms. Jaafar
