We had a really lovely week together, despite our crazy day with the sub on Wednesday.
This week we learned about transition words and how to make our sentences more interesting. We ended the lesson with an experiment in peanut butter and jelly sandwich making (ask your kid about this!) We also did our 5th and final Great Lesson. This lesson is all about the history of numbers and we learned a bit more about Roman Numerals.
With just a few weeks left in the year we are wrapping things up in the classroom but we also have a lot more to do. Please make sure that your kiddo is getting enough sleep each night. With all of the additional sunlight it is so tempting to stay up late but it is starting to show in the classroom with some of the kids. Everyone should be eating a good breakfast before arriving at school. Many of our friends are busting out their lunches at 9:05 which means they don't have enough food for lunch or snacks to sustain them through the rest of the day.
Field trip forms were due on Friday. Thank you to everyone for getting those back to me. I will be contacting you the weekend before the BBQ to remind you of the item that you signed up for. Are you available to chaperone for any of these field trips? We really only have chaperones for the BBQ. We need parents to sign up for the Pioneer School House and the ANHC as well.
