Week of April 10-13, 2023

Hello Room 108 Families,

Have you been enjoying this beautiful weather? I sure have! We have spent a lot of time outside this week. We also got a chance to visit our school garden! The students worked hard cleaning up the garden from trash and weeds with Mrs. Gorman! Our students really love to help out!

As a friendly reminder, please make sure you are sending your child to school with a water bottle every day! Now that the weather is getting warmer, it is important that your child stays hydrated at school. Also, please make sure that your child is wearing clothes and shoes that are appropriate for the weather. We want to make sure your child is not too hot or too cold at school. Please do not send your child to school with sandals or open-toe shoes. This can be a hazard and your child can get hurt, especially if their shoes slip off or someone steps on their toes. Thank you!

We are still looking for chaperones to attend the trip. If you are interested, please let me know! We highly encourage chaperones to attend, as it is a great opportunity to learn with your child. More detailed information about our field trip will be available as we get closer to the date.

What Did We Learn About This Week?

Science, science, and more science! The students were scientists this week as they explored different scientific phenomenon. We had a lot of fun experiments, such as:

  • Sound travel
  • Ramps and friction
  • Ice melting
  • Magnets

The students practiced their science skills by making predictions about what would happen during each experiment and make conclusions for their findings. It was so fun!

We reviewed letters N, O, P, and Q this week! The students checked to see if these letters were in their names. We also reviewed words that start with these letters by playing the game we played during the Parent Meeting! It is truly amazing how hard our students are working!

Next Week at Salina…

Fun Weekend Activity Idea!

I encourage you to keep the science going at home! Since we are expecting beautiful weather this weekend, take the science outside! One of the experiments we talked about this week was ice melting. What else can melt? I encourage you and your child to take items outside and see if they melt. Ask your child some of these questions:

  • “Tell me about what you see?”
  • “This item melted and this one did not. I wonder how that happened. What do you think?”
  • “Which items do you think will melt? Why do you think that is?”
