Curriculum for the week of February 8th - 12th
Reading--Visualize while reading
AT HOME READING: Read aloud a book to your child that is not familiar to them, but do not show them the pictures. As you are reading, have children draw pictures of what they imagine the illustrations look like.
Writing--Students will create a story that includes a beginning, middle, and end
Science--Observe, compare and describe components of soil by size, texture, and color.
Spelling Test on Friday, February 12th
Valentine Exchange in Class--Friday, February 12th
We do not have a Valentine's party at school. Instead, we will have a Valentine Exchange in class on Friday, February 12th. If your child would like to bring Valentine cards to give to their friends, they can do so on Friday, Feb. 12th.
Please be aware that food or candy treats should not be attached to Valentine cards. If your child wants to attach pencils, erasers, stickers, etc…. to their cards for their friends, that is fine. Students will not be allowed to pass out any edible items.
It is optional for children to bring Valentines, but if your child does want to bring Valentine cards, we suggest they leave the “To” section blank and only sign their name on the “From” section. If your child wants to decorate a shoebox or a bag at home, they can certainly do so and bring it to school with their cards. Otherwise I will give them a bag to collect any cards they might receive.
