Week of February 2-6, 2015
2/16: No School (President's Day)
2/17: No School (Professional Development for Teachers)
On February 13th, we will celebrate Valentine's Day. Some students may choose to bring in valentines for their classmates. I have sent home a class list with your child, so if your child chooses to bring in valentines, he/she can make sure to make a valentine for every classmate.
To practice our skill, 3K students looked at different cartoons to analyze the clues in the cartoon, and what they already know, to fill in blank speech bubbles. Students were able to make various inferences from using different clues from the pictures.
Math Comes To Life!
Global School Play Day
This week marks the first annual Global School Play Day. This is a day where classrooms nation wide highlight the importance of play. Students are able to partake in unstructured, cooperative, and collaborative play. Students brought in various games that they wanted to share with classmates. Students practiced skills of imagination and collaboration. Classmates worked on skills such as taking others' perspectives and communicating with others in a stress-free, fun environment. We also used social media to explore how students at Tatem and across the country spent their time playing on Global School Play Day.
