MORE KINDERGARTEN ACTIVITIES
So far, February has been a very busy month in first grade. First graders have joined the morning announcement team at Tawanka as meteorologists by reporting the daily weather. While trying to brighten someone’s day, our students used their amazing artistic talents and writing skills to create beautiful Valentines for folks in a nursing home. Next, we celebrated the 100 Day of School with some fun STEM activities using 100 items to build and create. Students also used their estimation skills to figure out which container held exactly 100 small items, and tried to guess how many were in ten different containers. It wasn’t an easy task, but they made some excellent estimations. Finally, we celebrated Valentine’s Day with fun classroom activities and a card exchange with classmates. Meanwhile, the 100 Book Challenge continues, and our first graders are reading for enjoyment and for the challenge, too!
To wrap up their Social Studies unit on Service Workers in our community, Second Graders interviewed some service workers at Tawanka! Thank you for all that you do for us!!!

The third graders had a great time writing Valentine poems using metaphors and graphing conversation hearts for Valentine's day. In social studies they were learning about Native Americans and the first settlers that arrived from England in Jamestown. We are now learning about immigration in the early 1900's through Ellis Island. Students have been reading about the costs and benefits immigrants faced when making the decision to move to America. Many students have first hand experience because they or their parents have immigrated to America themselves.
