From the Student Lighthouse Team:

Community Service Projects

The students of Lindbergh have decided to do two community service projects.  This helps out the community by us giving to those that are in need. We are sharpening our saw by helping our hearts.  Please consider giving to one of our projects.

  1. Dearborn Animal Shelter

The Dearborn Animal Shelter is located on Michigan Ave. behind the Police Station.  They take care of many unwanted pets. Due to the amount of animals they need our help.  The shelter is in need of many new items to help take care of the animals. Here is a list of a few needed items for dogs and cats. Cats need dry purina, dishes and cat clay litter- non clumping. Dogs need Nylon 6 ft. collars, pedigree(food). Both cats and dogs need new fleece blankets, toys and treats. We are collecting until the end of February. Put the donations in the box by the Auditorium.

 

 

  1. Ronald McDonald House

The Ronald McDonald House of Ann Arbor provides a “home away from home” for families of children experiencing a serious illness or injury required hospitalization in the Ann Arbor area.

The Ronald McDonald House needs pop tabs to turn in and they can recycle them for money.  Please bring your pop tabs to school and put them in your classroom container. We are collecting until the end of May.

Book Orders I sent a new book order today.  This will be the last one before the holiday break.

Language Arts  Last week we worked on changing ending sounds to create new words along with rhyming words.  Then we worked on asking and answering questions about narrative stories such as character, setting, and events in a story.  In Writing we continued working on our opinion writing, adding reasons for our thoughts with better details that describe why we like and don’t like things.

Math/Science/Social Studies  In Math we finished up our first module on counting and numbers to 10.  We began module 2 on shapes.  In Science we added our sense of sight and hearing to our 5 Senses unit.  We read The Listening Walk and went outside on a listening walk, journaling everything we heard outside around our school. In Social Studies we formed groups, and learned we have 5 needs to live; food, air, water, shelter and clothes.  We discussed if we needed food, do we need all types of food?  The children decided a nurse would be the best one to ask about food so we created a list of questions to ask and emailed a nurse.  We will hear from her this week.

From the PTA

The PTA needs your help!!!!
We could still use a few more donations for our conference dinner tonight.  We would love to provide a feast for our teachers if you have time to make/bake/buy anything that would be amazing.  We are hoping to make this long day a little easier with a full stomach.  Please have all items either outside the office/ or food items can be put in the teachers lounge by 3pm.  Check out the sign up genius and let us know what you can bring.  Thanks Danielle

Cold Weather Gear

Now that the cold weather and snow are here, I have some information to share.  Our school policy is that children need to have both snow pants and boots, to be able to go out to the playground equipment when there is snow on the ground.  If not, they will need to stay on the blacktop only, off the snow piles.  Please have your children practice putting on their own snow plants and boots, as well as zipping up their own coat.  Remember, there are 26 of them and one of me.  In order to maximize learning and get to lunch on time, children need to work on these self help skills.  I am zipping several coats on a daily basis.  Please also practice  the order these items need to be put on; snow pants then boots, zip then gloves.  We will go out unless the wind chill is under 20 degrees.  You can send in a bag for all their snow gear to easily transport.  Please label all gear, as snow pants can look very similar.  We will not be taking the time to use snow pants at morning or afternoon recess however, per Ms. Tiba.  This is a quick break and the use of snow pants will double our allowed time.  I also do not send them home in snow pants and boots.  They will be in their bags if they are going home each day.  Please pack extra gloves and socks to be placed in the tops of their lockers.  These items get wet easily and we usually need spares.  If you have not updated the emergency change of clothes in the lockers, this is the time to do it.  I do not like to bother you if at all possible for accidents and spills.  Thank you for all your help and support with this transition to winter.  I really appreciate all your help.

News and Notes  Thank you to our homeroom moms and all the families that made our class basket look amazing!  All the money raised will come back to our class to use for class needs.  I have already purchased some alternate seating, math materials, and CD players for listen to reading.

Language Arts  Last week we worked on isolating ending sounds in words.  We also tried to match words with similar ending sounds.  This is a great car activity since it is all oral language.  Be proactive and try this any time with beginning, end, and middle sounds!  We also worked on creating new words by changing the beginning sounds. In writing we worked on using capital letters only when we are supposed to; the first letter in a sentence, the word I, and names.  Please help kids work on this skill at home as they are writing.  We use lowercase letters so much more than capitals, so let’s practice those more often in our writing.  It s a big switch for most kids and it takes repetition.

Math/Science/Social Studies  In Math we worked on drawing and counting one more up to 10.   We also played games to work on counting up and back.  In Science we began our study of the 5 senses.  We stared with the sense of touch and did a sort of things that are safe to touch and not safe to touch in their science journals.  In Social Studies we started our new unit for Economics, Do Healthy Food Choices Matter?  We will tie in healthy eating to our study of needs and wants and goods and services.

Language Arts  Last week we introduced our last choice at Daily 5, Read to Someone.  During this choice, children can read independent books, read chorally, or share a book.  This option helps readers with new texts, hear great reading, and work together.  We also worked on retelling familiar stories from beginning to end including character names and events.  In writing we returned to writing narratives using picture plans, spaces, and writing only the sounds we hear.

Math/Science/Social Studies  In Math we worked on writing numbers and number stories.   We also played games to work on fluency.  In Science we finished our unit assessment on forces.  These were sent home last week.  In Social Studies we Read scholastic News for informational reading.  We finished our unit on being a Great Lindbergh Flyer, getting along with others.
