Classroom News


I hope that everyone had a marvelous vacation!  This is the time of year where students begin to take off with their academic abilities.  I am so impressed with how well the entire group of children transitioned back to school.  We are beginning to behave and perform “like first graders,” as I always tell them!


Science

We will begin to learn about winter and what weather this season may bring.  We are going to be conducting multiple science experiments in the coming weeks with water.  Many of the children enjoy this hands-on experience.  We will work on making predictions and drawing pictures to match our words.  During this time, we will be looking at fiction and non-fiction books, as well as diving into literary non-fiction.

 Traditions Around the World

We have begun our unit on Traditions Around the World.  We have our passports ready and will "fly" to different countries to see what holiday traditions they have that may be different from our country! 

This week we visited: France



Book Buddies: 

This week we read The Gingerbread Man by Karen Schmidt with our Book Buddies.  Afterwards, we worked in partners to color in our "puppets" for The Gingerbread Man play that we are going to practice next week.  Students will hold up their puppet whenever their character is mentioned, reiterating the importance of listening and comprehending text.
