Valentine’s Party on Thursday! (STEM Family Fun Tomorrow)

Posted on

Hello Families!

Thursday is a half day and Valentine’s Day!!! We will have a Valentine’s Day Party starting at 10:15. I would love to have parents come and volunteer as helpers during this time! Please see me if you are available.

We will be passing out Valentine’s cards to each other. We have 17 students in the class should you and child choose to participate with this. Your child needs to bring enough Valentine’s for the whole class. Please have your child write only their name on the Valentine. I am also asking that if you are making goodie bags or plan on bringing candy with the Valentine, please remember we have a student who is allergic to nuts and another student who cannot have any treats at all. I appreciate your cooperation in making this a fun Valentine morning for our little angels!

In addition to this event, PLEASE plan on joining us tomorrow, Monday, at 4:30 for the STEM Family Fun Night! This is free and will take place in the cafeteria. I will be there and so will the other Oakman teachers. We will be running fun hands on science and technology games for you and your children! The event ends at 6:00! Any Y5 that comes to the STEM night will get to pick from the classroom Treasure Box!

Please remember, our class project, “Making Critters Comfy”. We are still collecting old towels and blankets for the Dearborn Animal Shelter.

Thank you for all you do!

Stories to Read with your Children!

Posted on

Hello Families!

I hope you all had a great day off of school and stayed safe on the icy roads. Yesterday, we had a bit of a water problem with a leak in our water play table towards the end of the day. I was not able to get ot the cubbies to have the children take their reading bags home. So…. because reading is so important and a great way to spend quality time with your little ones, I would like you to visit the following site. When you do, feel free to read whichever stories you and your child choose. However, there is a favorite on there…. it is “Harry the Dirty Dog”. Please check this site out! Click on the link below.

Storyline Online

Also, Ms. Stewart, our Art Teacher, lead the children in creating an adorable and very colorful rainbow fish! There is a beautiful story that is called Rainbow Fish… Check this one out too. Here is the link. Talk to your child about what their favorite part in the story is and we can talk about it during Share-Bear time tomorrow!

Rainbow Fish

Thank you for all you do!

See you tomorrow! I missed my little friends today! ๐Ÿ™‚

February Community Project: Making Critters Comfy

Posted on

Hello Families!

We are beginning a community project for the month of February. It is called โ€œMaking Critters Comfyโ€. Please ask those you know and check around your home for any used blankets, towels, and small rugs that are no longer wanted. Bring these to school! Our class goal is to collect 30 items to help 30 homeless and abandoned animals at the Dearborn Animal Shelter.

On February 26th at 4:30 we will meet at the Dearborn Shelter to deliver these items and get a picture. I would love for you to bring your children if you can!

P.S. I recently took in an abandoned animal in my home. She is such a sweet addition to our family. I am so blessed we found each other! Meet my Buttons!

My new little girl, Buttons! Because.... she is as cute as a Button! :)
