This week we wrapped up our solar system projects and our peace value flags. You will get to see both of these projects at your child's parent-teacher conference in a few weeks. The online registration system for conferences opens on Monday, please be sure to sign up for a conference. This is a chance for us to talk about and celebrate all of the great work your child has done this year so far.
Next week we will be starting to learn more about constellations and moon phases. We will be doing a moon phase activity that involves Oreo cookies. If you would prefer that your child not participate with the Oreos and would like an alternative material, please let me know. The children will be allowed to take them Oreos home once the activity is done at the end of the day.
We are scooting right along with our math, language, cultural and science lessons. Starting the first week of 2nd quarter we will be diving into our Second Great Lesson: The Coming of Life.
On October 18th we are going to the Anchorage Museum to see Space & Place. Currently we have enough chaperones but if you would like to join us you are more than welcome to! We will be eating lunch at the museum so please be sure to pack your child a bag lunch on this day. We will be gone from about 9:30 until 2pm.
October 25th and 26th are half days. Dismissal is at 12:30 on these days; please make sure your child knows where they are going for the afternoon ahead of time. October 27th is an inservice day - enjoy your extra time with your family!
