I have a special “Fun Friday” activity planned for the class. I hope the weather is nice. Stay tuned to hear what it is!
So many papers and tests came home on Friday, sorry! Please sign and return Math and Spelling tests, and if you haven’t had a chance to sign and return the report card cover, feel free to send that in too!
I’m assuming you have met your child’s new friend – the chick in an egg! Please send the chick back to school each day so we can take care of him/her and write about the fun they have been having together!
The most important paper is our field trip permission slip. Please read the instruction sheet carefully and be sure to check the appropriate boxes and sign where needed. You may send this to school as soon as it is completed. We are having school picture day on our field trip day! This is great because now we get to have our pictures taken first!
During our science fair on Wednesday the kids each had a chance to plant some wildflowers. We placed them on our sunny windowsill and have been observing and drawing what we see each day.
We had our hot chocolate reward party on Friday complete with whip cream and sprinkles. Not one kiddo spilled their hot chocolate! How did that even happen?
We have a fun and busy week ahead:
Monday, April 15 – There will be a substitute in our room. The kids have Music class. They will finish our time and measurement unit in Math by completing a Telling Time Art Project. New spelling words will come home today. We’re going to have our test on Thursday. Students will only have 4 days to practice their words, but this way you won’t have any homework over our long break! It is PSSA week for the “big kids” in grades 3-6. We made some special treats for our 5th grade buddies in 5-Becker. All students are encouraged to wear sweatshirts today because Eshleman students can show what they know – no sweat!
Tuesday, April 16 – Our special is library and book exchange. Please send library books to school. If the weather cooperates, we’re going to go outside to the Eshleman garden to plant some spinach.

Next week I’d like to sort and graph jellybeans, and I thought it would also be fun to have a candy scramble or egg hunt.

Donations may be sent to school until Tuesday, April 16. Thanks so much!
