Poem of the week

Gray Squirrel

Hurry, hurry, scamper, scurry,

Little squirrel all gray and furry.

Find an acorn; crack it, crunch it,

Nibble, nibble, munch, munch, munch it.

Find another, fat and round,

To bury quickly in the ground.

Gather nuts-don’t stop to play!

For winter winds are on the way.

Joan Horton

What Was Happening?

In this week, the letter “C” was our focus. We worked on letter “C” worksheets in which we learned how to trace the letter “C”, how to color pictures that start with letter “C”, and we also made “C is for car” samples. We picked some of our pictures that start with the letter of the week and hung them on the wall outside our classroom. We are still working on counting numbers 1-10 in math. Since Fall started on Thursday the 22nd of September, we will be observing how tree leaves change their color for science class. We made a tree out of construction paper and filled it with natural green leaves. We will keep an eye on these leaves while they change their color. For reading comprehension, we used “Pete the Cat The Wheels on the Bus” by James Dean. We worked on answering “What book did we read?” and “Who was the story about?”. We continued with our core word “I” by reading “I have Feelings” . We enjoyed our time with Ms. Nada (Art), Mrs. Reed (Music), and Mr. Borg (Gym).

Poem of the week

New Friend

A new friend, a true friend

A cheers-me-when-I’m-blue-friend

A sunny-day-hurray friend

A come-over-and-play friend

A nice-in-every-way friend

A new friend, a true friend

A turns-the-gray-skies-blue friend

A talk-and-talk-non-stop friend

A giggle-till-we-drop friend

A non-can-ever-top friend

A new friend, a true friend

A happy-I-met-you friend

At the top of My Voice

When I stamp

The ground thunders,

When I shout

The world rings,

When I sing

The air wonders

How I do such things.

Hello, Friends & Families!

Poem of the week

First Day Of School

In summertime the butterflies

dance ’round our dogwood tree.

Now summer’s done and school’s begun,

they’re fluttering in me!

Will my teacher like me?

Will I make new friends?

Will I learn to write my name

before the school year ends?

Look! There’s my teacher now-

she winks as I walk in.

And a boy with a friendly, freckled face

just flashed me a wide grin.

We learn to write the alphabet-

and it’s only the first day!

Hey, I think those butterflies

are fluttering away!

I’ll see you soon, my sunny friends,

back where you belong-

dancing ’round the dogwood tree

when summer sings its song.

——- Maria Fleming

LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL

Poem of the week

Cow

I approve of June

Fresh food to chew

and chew

and chew

Lots of room to move around

or lie down

Not too hot

Not too cold

Not too wet

Not too dry

A good roof of sky over me and my calf

Who’s now halfway up

on new legs

He’ll want a meal real soon

Yes, I approve of June

————— Marilyn Singer

What was Happening?

On Monday, we started the last week of school by planning for our Summer break.

We filled our “My Summer Bucket List” with our favorite fun activities that we might do.

On Tuesday, we had Howe field day. We had a great and fun time.

On Wednesday, we enjoyed a day off at home due to high temperatures.

On Thursday, we welcomed our new friend, Isra, who is going to join our family next year. Isra made a beautiful visit to our room, and she met her new friends as well as her new classroom’s staff. We also made “Happy Father’s Day” cards to celebrate “The world best dad”, our daddy.

On Friday, we ended this week with a half day, said goodbyes, took a group pictures, and we wished each other a beautiful Summer break.

Enjoy this week’s pictures:

From our family at room 107 to your family, we wish you all a happy, fun, and safe Summer break 🙂
