We will start this week off with a field trip bright and early Monday morning. We will be going up to Rocky Mountain College's airport hanger from 8:30-10:15. We will get to hear from students within the aviation program. They will talk to the kids about the planes, the forces of flight, and some flight history. The kids will also get the chance to see planes up close and even sit in the cockpit! Please make sure your kiddo is on time to school on Monday so we can be ready to leave right away!
In reading we will be looking into the question: How do animals adapt to challenges in their habitat? We will look at this essential question for the next two weeks because of the break. We will focus on the skills of rereading, comparing and contrasting, and using context clues. In grammar we will work on helping verbs. We will continue to work on our fictional narrative writing.
In math we are working on fractions. We will look at fractions greater than one and relating fractions to whole numbers. Please continue to practice your multiplication facts at home!
This week and next week are short weeks due to our winter break. There is no school on Friday, February 8th or Monday, February 11th.
Thursday, February 7th is my last day before maternity leave (if I make it until then). Miss Stapleton will take over on Tuesday, February 12th. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please contact her with any questions or concerns while I am gone as she will be the teacher! :)
Our Valentine's day party is coming up on Thursday, February 14th from 12:35-2:00. A letter came home on Tuesday all about it. The kids get to make their own boxes and they may bring them in starting on February 12th to display for a couple days. If they choose to exchange Valentine's they need to make sure to have a Valentine for everyone in the class.
