Valentines Day Updates
We are looking forward to upcoming Valentine’s Day celebrations! Since students will not be at school on Friday, February 14th, we look forward to celebrating on Thursday, February 13th. Our room parents are planning a special celebration and we are sure to have a wonderful time in class that afternoon!
In order to keep all students safe, this year Sherwood Pandas are asked not to send in any edible Valentine items.
If students do choose to bring Valentines for the class, please ensure that they bring one for every child in our class. (They are welcome to bring individual Valentines for any students in other classes.) Students are welcome to attach non-edible items such as stickers, stampers, pencils, etc to their Valentines.

English Language Arts
Students led one another in great discussions and mathematical conversations, rich with new vocabulary! Our Division Math Forum was a huge success! This week we will continue to work with fact families and different strategies to help build a deeper understanding of the connection between multiplication and division!
We will also learn a new Work Place called Line ’Em Up, which reinforces the use of an array model for division, provides an opportunity for students to deepen their understanding of the operation, and produces interesting patterns that will engage all learners!
Science- Water & Climate
This week, the meteorologists are excited to kick off our unit on Water and Climate.
This week we will conduct investigations to observe the properties of water, Earth’s most precious resource! They’ll compare how water drops interact with four materials: paper towel, waxed paper, aluminum foil, and writing paper to observe how water absorbency. Later in the week the students will engage in a challenge to measure how much water a dry sponge can soak up. They’ll determine this by measuring mass, volume, or perhaps even both. Integrating what they’ve learned in our math sessions will add for opportunities to explore real world experiences!
Students who complete THREE opportunity knocks activities by Friday, will have the chance to enter my class prize bin! If your child is looking for something fun to do this weekend, these just may be the answer you're looking for!
