End of Week Updates!

This has been a busy week. It was nice to be back to five full days of school! It finally feels like we are able to get to everything in our day. This weather being beautiful has also helped.

We are continuing with Weather and Seasons in Benchmark Unit 8. Along with the writing and stories we are also adding in weather topics for the science unit. We focused on severe weather and what that particular weather looks like, and what we can do to be prepared (have flashlights, candles, canned food, etc.) It can be a scary topic but the students did a great job of understanding why we need to discuss and learn about severe weather. We will continue next week with this unit.

For Eureka math we are working on counting the “Say 10 way”. So you say 7, 8, 9, 10-1, 10-2, 10-3, etc. It can be tricky but it reminds them to not forget about the 10 ones that are included in the count. From their we went into 10 ones and 4 ones is 14. This is paving the way to be able to compose and decompose all of our teen numbers. You will receive the exit tickets each Friday for the lessons that we did during the week. This is a good way for you to see some of the work we are doing. ***Remember these are not checked or graded. I just quickly glance over and make note if it was incorrect.

Social Studies will be combined with Benchmark Unit 9…. so nothing yet. 🙂

On Wednesday, April 19th we will be celebrating Ms. Emily’s final day with us! I can not express how helpful and great she has done in our classroom these last 12 weeks! I am so sad to see her go but excited that she is prepared to be an early childhood teacher on her own! I would like to invite you to a “Teacher Shower” on Wednesday 4/19 between 315-345 pm. We will have cupcakes and ice cream to celebrate the fun we had with her. It is a great time to say thanks and give her encouraging words. Buzz for the office at the playground doors and Ms. Bernadette will let you come to the classroom. When you are finished then you can take your child. I think it will be a great way to end her student teaching experience. Please let me know if you have any questions about this.

Thank you to Mrs. Fournier for our delicious pizza party on Wednesday! The students earned this by having the most reading participation in March!

Reminder that this week was definitely a weather exception. It looks like next week is back to normal temperatures. Please make sure your child has pants, sweaters, and a coat if necessary for recess. Unless it is pouring rain we will be outside to play! The school rule is if the temperature is below 60 degrees the student must have a sweater or coat on.

Calendar reminders-

NO SCHOOL – Thursday 4/20 & Friday 4/21 (Eid Mubarak to those who celebrate!)

Late Start- Wednesday, April 26th

I hope you all have a great weekend!
