Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Many thanks to Mrs. Slater for planning the holiday party. Special thanks to Mrs. Furno for planning and making all 3 games for our holiday party and all of the holiday treat bags. The children enjoyed all the snack foods and cookies donated, too. Thank-you for all the support that made our party a lot of fun for the children.
The challenge this week was grammar Rule #10- Possessive Nouns. The children have never had experience with possessives. The children are confusing them with plurals and contractions. So many different uses for apostrophes and the -s at the end of a word! We will continue to work with possessives when we return from the holiday break.

Our little geologists smashed mock rocks and separated out all the different 'minerals' they could see. Students have learned a rock is a mixture and minerals are single substances. More rock fun to come after the holiday break!
