We will be making Valentine's for a retirement community as well as passing out Valentines and making a small craft. Your child needs to bring a decorated box or bag to collect their Valentines from the class. Please have their name clearly displayed on the box or bag. Decorate the box at home as you wish and bring it to school on Thursday, Feb. 11. We will not be decorating the boxes in school. I'll have bags for students who forget or are unable to make a box. Have fun and be creative!
Please send me an email with any questions or concerns about Valentine's Day.

What We're Learning
In reading, we are learning to compare and contrast similar stories. We'll be learning how to distinguish unique features from a story and contrast them to others. We will also be learning about point of view and how different characters may have different points of view in a text.
In science, we are wrapping up our unit on Pebbles, Sand and Silt.
In writing, we have been diligently researching for our first writing project. Each student has selected an animal to write about. We're using our knowledge of author's purpose to write a nonfiction text that will teach others about our animal. Have your student show you the research tools we've been using, such as Brittanica school and Pebble Go!
