According to Punxsutawney Phil, will we have more winter or will we have spring? We will be talking about "Groundhog Day" this week and be doing some shadow activities!! Fun!
We are almost finished with our winter projects. I hope you heard all about making snow, experimenting with ice and blubber, and melting ice with salt! What a good time we had last week! Did your children tell you about cooking "Bannock"? We also painted our clay snowmen and created a winter scene with them! Look for them around the school. They are beautiful! We are working on a winter book called, The Snowman! Hopefully it will go home at the end of the week!
Later in the week, we will move on to our next unit, "Our Healthy Hearts"! We will learn about proper foods to eat and how to take care of our bodies!
Toward the end of the week, look for pictures of your children dramatizing the story of Jan Brett's book, The Mitten. Fun! Your children loved this activity!
Friday, February 12, will be our Valentine exchange day. It is not a party day. Please have your children write their own names on their Valentines and try to write their classmates' names on the envelopes! Start early... this will be excellent writing practice for your children! Remember upper and lower case letters, please, and make sure your child is holding the pencil properly! The "Hello Book" should be a great help!
Have a great week!
