With allergy season upon us, I am running really low on Kleenex. If possible, would you send in a box of Kleenex for us to use in the classroom?
Thanks a bunch!
What is a Leap Year?
Every four years we have a Leap Year, which means we have a year with 366 days in it rather than the typical 365. That day is February 29. This is done so that the calendar year can keep up with the astronomical year. If we didn’t have this extra day built in every four years, our seasons would slowly change. Can you imagine having to wear a winter coat during a July snowstorm? Neither can we!
This Wednesday is Leap Year Day!
Report cards were sent home today (although I did see a couple in mailboxes). I am looking forward to sharing your child’s progress with you. Thank you for sharing your amazing children with me!
Mrs. Flory has a passion for Michigan History and will be teaching that unit to the students as I teach some of the science units that our students have already completed to her class. I will be adding key vocabulary words to a Social Studies page at the top of the blog as they are discussed.
The object of the event is for each class/team to collect as many SILVER coins as possible during the “war” to help raise funds for school supplies, field trips, events, etc. NO PENNIES or CANADIAN coins are permitted in the container. Students bring U.S. silver coins to school and place them in the container in their classroom.
- Monday, February 26 – Thursday, March 1 – Students may bring in coins and fill their container
- Tuesday, February 27 – Wednesday February 28 – Gold and Silver DRESS UP DAYS.
- Thursday March 1: Containers collected at the end of the day and counted over the weekend.
Prizes are as follows:
- 1st place class: Special, extra long lunch and dessert with Principal
- 2nd place class: Ice Cream party
- 3rd place class: Pizza party
- Highest earning grade level: extra recess and PJ Day
Math & Science: I added specific pages for math and science. This will make it easier for you to find key vocabulary words that we are discussing. You will notice the page directly above our class picture.
Valentine’s Day Party: Our party will be on February 14th from 12:45-1:30. If you could send in a small shoebox or kleenex box by this Friday, we would love to make something to store our Valentines. Remember we have 28 students in our class. I will send home a class list to assist your child with making their Valentine cards. Mrs. Sheldon is doing an excellent job with planning activities. She has 5 other parents assisting her. If you can make it during our party to lend an extra hand, let me know.
