100th Day of School - Monday, February 1st

If you would like to volunteer tomorrow for the 100th day, I have 2 morning and 2 afternoon slots available. Please make sure you have filled out the appropriate paper work to volunteer. This is a first come first serve basis, so please contact me at your earliest convenience.







A Peek at the Week

Our Focus: "100th Day of School" on Monday. We will be doing activities all day long that have to do with 100. The rest of the week, we will be talking about "Pushes and Pulls". Students will identify pushes and pulls on objects they interact with on a regular basis and how they affect their everyday life.

Weekly Skills: Students will manipulate objects with their hands and well as investigate simple machines to develop a deeper understanding of force and motion. Through observations and keeping records, they will investigate the collision of two objects and the importance of direction and strength of the force.

Popcorn Words: 3Q Popcorn Words

Math: As the students have become very comfortable with number sense of 0-10, we will be developing skills to be fluent in addition and subtraction from numbers 0-5. Students will be using pictures, story problems, fingers and manipulatives to become proficient in composing (adding) and decomposing (subtracting) mathematical equations.
