What's Happening in Ms. Rowell's Classroom?

We have some very exciting things coming up this week! We will be doing a lot of hands on arts and crafts projects. The children are very exited to paint and get messy! We will also be learning about the letter G. Last week's star students are on our newsletter. These students went above and beyond in the classroom. Of course all my students are stars, but this gives a little incentive for everyone to work hard and always do their best!

Arts and Crafts

On Monday and Wednesday this week we are learning about shapes and textures! We will be finger painting on Monday afternoon and painting with foods on Wednesday. Everyone is so excited to get messy and have lots of fun!

The Letter G!

This weeks alphabet letter is the letter G! On Tuesday we will be learning all about the letter G during our morning lesson. We will explore the safari boards in our hallways and find the Giraffe! After we find our friend Geoffrey the Giraffe, we will watch a video about the tallest animal known in the world and color the letter G to go into our alphabet book.

Upcoming Events

Friday is spirit day! Make sure to send your child to school in their best school spirit outfit. The classroom with the most school spirit gets a pizza party next week during lunch!

Wednesday night is the book fair in the library! Parents bring your children from 4 pm to 7 pm and explore the shelves for some fun books your child can read in class or at home!

Field Trip!

Just as a reminder, our class field trip to the zoo will be two weeks from Monday! Payment is due THIS FRIDAY, so make sure you send money with your child so we can all go together! We are also in need of two more parent chaperons to help keep track of all the children. Even if you do not sign up as a chaperon, any parents who would like to come are more than welcome! Three other classes will join us on our adventure. We are all very excited for the children to explore and learn about the animals!

Annual Food Drive

Parents do not forget to send some canned food with your children to donate to our food drive! It will end a week from this Wednesday.
