Field Day is on Wednesday, March 5 for kindergarten and 1st grade. Students do not need to wear their uniforms on Field Day as long as they wear athletic clothes. Students are also permitted to bring hats and sunglasses. Please remember to put sunscreen on your child. Please note that while this is a fun day for the children, unfortunately we cannot have parents who are not signed up to volunteer come and watch. The events will begin at 8:15 A.M. and will end around 11:30 A.M. If you are able to volunteer your time and have your fingerprint clearance card from Great Hearts, please sign up at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0A4EAFAC23AB9-archway.
Spring Break is March 8-16.
Literature: This week we are reviewing some of the Brother Grimm fairytales they have read this year. Students will discuss all the elements that make up a fairytale. I will be checking homework a little more closely and expecting high quality work. Students should be writing sentences that are interesting, creative and detailed.
Science: This is our last week of studying the ocean. Students will learn about coral habitats. Students will also explore the different kinds of animals that thrive in this habitat. Students will also learn where seashells come from and be able to sort the different kinds of seashells. Last week Dr. Cheroske came in to teach us the different kinds of sea life animal classifications. He brought in many unique species. It was an amazing presentation and the students really found it fascinating.
History: This week students will learn the important roles of a president. We discuss the white house, seal of the president and Washington D.C.
I hope you have a nice week.
