We’ll start this week celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday by reading some of his books. Also, we have activities for the hundredth day of school. Please send your child with 100 tiny, lightweight objects (Cheerios, beans, etc.) to glue onto a grid. 

Our recent Shape and Say stories were “Edwina the Elephant” and “The Jalopy”. 

The CIK story was “Simmy’s Problem” focusing on expanding our circle of friends.

“Abraham Lincoln” and “His Name was Washington” were popular songs this month. We are currently learning “Teaching Peace,” “It’s a Shamrock” and “The National Anthem.”

We are continuing with another chapter book by Russell E. Erickson—“Warton and the Contest.”

As a class we are preparing for daylight savings: We are role-playing dimming lights and turning off electronics an hour before bedtime. Students are thinking of activities and books they would like their families to enjoy together during this calming down time. 

We are hearing much enthusiasm about the research happening outside of school. Tri-folds are due this Friday. Presentations will take place over the next few weeks. We hope all families are able to attend the project fair on Tuesday, March 11 at 3:15 to 4:15 and 6:00 to 7:00.
