Monday is Dr.Seuss's birthday! In celebration, we will be doing a Celebration of Life for Dr.Seuss. In order to do so, we will be spending the day researching more information about his life so that we may have information to share during his birthday celebration. We will also be doing Suess-themed math and literacy activities throughout the day. Mrs.Homan will be dressed as her favorite Suess character; who will you dress up as? Come dressed as your favorite character Dr.Seuss on Monday!
We had two excellent field trips this past week. Happy Birthday Anchorage and the Public Lands building were really wonderful experiences. Thank you to all of our helpful chaperones; without you we cannot go on these trips! Thank you, thank you!
March 5th, which is Thursday, is our last school day before Spring Break. It is also the day we will be doing our second and final market in class. If your child was interested in partaking in this as a business owner they needed to submit their Business Plan last Friday. Please remind your child to take their school money (not real money!) to school on Thursday so that they may purchase products from the vendors again. The last market was really fun and the kids learned a great deal from the experience!
Spring photos will also be taken on March 5th so make sure your kiddo arrives at school looking their best!
I will be spending Spring Break in Philadelphia to visit a very dear friend and to attend the AMS National Montessori Conference. I am really excited for this opportunity and I cannot wait to bring back photos from my explorations while I am there. John will be traveling with me and I know the kids are excited to see what appears in his journal upon my return. That said, I will miss the first day back to school due to traveling. Please, please prepare your child for this. We have talked about it in class but for the sake of the sub, being that it's right after break, please address this at home as well.
We have been working on Africa quite a bit and are preparing for our presentation at the end of the year. Ask your child what they've been working on and what they have learned!
In preparation for a few special holiday's that are approaching we are working hard in class on secret projects. I have covered the cost of the majority of them but I need your help! If you could please send in $1 to help out, I would so appreciate it.
