I hope you are all enjoying some fun in the snow! Due to our snow day today, we will now be in session next Friday, February 17.

Looking for something to do today? Check out these snow science experiments! We’ve been talking about Matter and how it can change from one state to another. Can your child take the solid ice and turn it into a liquid? Do you want to make your own snowflake? Check this out!


You can practice your math facts on XtraMath or check out some of the link on the Fun Links tab of the blog. Students can send me pictures of them playing in the snow and a short message about what they did today at casie.saxton@pennmanor.net.


Here are a couple of cool videos for this snow day also!

Wild Kratts: Snowy Owl

Cat in the Hat: Long Winter’s Nap


Don’t forget to work on your Valentine’s Day Challenge project! 🙂 I included the class list in case you lost yours and want to work on your Valentines. It is not a requirement for you to do the project or bring in valentines. No one will be left out! 🙂


See you tomorrow!

Reminders & News:

  • Tuesday is another day A. We are making up a day A that we missed in November when we were not in session, but secondary was.
  • As we begin the second semester, students will no longer be going to library instruction. Instead, students will be going to what we are calling “Flex” time. During this time, they will be practicing problem solving skills and outside the box thinking to create and build things. Students will still exchange their library books every other cycle as we have been doing all year.
  • The class has earned another reward; Furry Friend Friday! Students may bring a stuffed animal to school with them on Friday, January 20.

The 100th Day of School!

Please check your child’s folder for the 100th day letter that came home today. If you are interested in donating items for our day, please sign up here. If you are interested in helping out that day, please sign up here. Please know, that if there are any snow days between now and February 1, our 100th day celebration will be pushed backed accordingly. 🙂

Calling All Mystery Readers!!!

I’m looking for my second round of readers! 🙂 Grandparents, aunts, uncles, moms, dads, siblings come and read to our class. If you are interested in being a mystery reader during the second half of the year, sign up here. Please note, you will need to email me your time preference from the 3 choices, unless you sign up for a day with a time already selected. Those times must be 9:15 due to our early dismissal schedule.

If none of these dates suit you, email me and we can set something up. Also, if we would have a delay or cancellation on your day to come in, we will reschedule your date due to the impact on our schedule. Thank you!
