Peek at the Week

A Note From the Teacher

The flu has hit our class hard this week! I hope everyone is feeling better soon! Today we concluded our research of weather and presented our findings to the class. The students really did well with their first official research project (Genius Hour)! We will learn about about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln next week. We will also learn about addition strategies, contractions, multiple meanings of words, non-fiction and editing our stories for publication.

**VALENTINE'S**

1. Use an old shoe box or Kleenex box and decorate it to collect Valentine's in class. Make sure the opening is large enough for pencils, candies, and goodies to fit. Use items from around the house and let your child be creative. You can cover the box in paper and add stickers or turn the box into a boat, animal, mailbox, etc. Let me know if you need to borrow anything as I have various craft items here. Please turn this in on or before Tuesday, February 13, 2018.


2. Bring a Valentine card for each student. Please have your child start early enough to be able to write each child's name themselves. This is great practice. We have 20 students. There are 7 boys and 13 girls. These also need to be turned in by the 13th.


3. I will update you with more details about the party but it is usually very low key with ice cream sundaes and opening Valentines. This will be on the 14th. More info. TBA.
