Week 8

Mr. Paul “The Critter Guy” visited our class this week! He brought several different animals such as a tree frog, chinchilla, mouse, doves, starfish and a snake for the children to learn about, see and even touch.  Enjoy the photos!

Week 7

This week we really focused on numbers and letters.  We built and sorted letters using straight lines and curved lines. We also worked on the difference between letters and numbers. Please continue to work with your child at home. Helping them recognize both letters and numbers as well as understanding the difference between the two.

Week 6

The children have been showing a lot of interest in pumpkins and apples.  Because of this we decided to dive deeper into these two fruits.  We started by opening up the pumpkins and looking inside.  Most of the children enjoyed digging out the seeds.  Once the seeds were out, the children cleaned them, soaked them in water and finally we baked and ate them for snack!  We also made applesauce with our apples.  Ask your child about these two recipes! Which one did they like best?

Week 5

This week we introduced Read to Someone.  During Daily 5 the children are now able to choose a partner to read their books to. 


Which apple is your favorite? Red, Yellow or Green? We found out this week that green is the favorite in our class!  The children were given the opportunity to taste the three different apples. We talked about their differences and similarities such as texture and flavor. Then each child voted by writing their name in the appropriate column.  Please see the completed chart hanging in the hallway outside of our classroom door.

Parent Survey

This survey consists of two questions to collect parent feedback on the possibility to pilot year-round school concept in one or two elementary schools. One of the arguments for year-round schooling is that children will have better knowledge retention versus having too much of a mental break in the summer. School calendar would be extended to include additional four weeks in the summer. Please click on the link to share your feedback:


يتألف هذا الاستقصاء من سؤالين لجمع آراء أولياء الامور بشأن إمكانية تجريب مفهوم المدرسة على مدار السنة في عدد صغير من المدارس الابتدائية. إحدى فوائد التعليم المدرسي على مدار السنة هي أن الطلاب يحافظون على متابعة التحصيل العلمي خلال الصيف. إذا قمنا بتنفيذ هذه

Week 4

With one month under our belt, the children have settled into the routine of school. They have slowly taken on more roles within the classroom.  As discussed at the last parent meeting, we have been working on developing independence. Here are some pictures of what it looks like in school.


We also took a walk around the neighborhood to look at the changing colors!
