This Week 1/23/22

In math we will be counting and comparing sets. I am planning three nights of homework. They are scheduled on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

We will be finishing up upper case letters this week. If all goes as planned we will begin reading groups next week.

We will be reading about the cold weather and keeping warm. One story I have planned is the “Mitten” by Jan Brett. One of the goals is to learn to retell the story.

IMPORTANT

We voted on rewards:

Morning class chose a pajama day. The pajama day will happen tomorrow. Students can also ring in a stuffy.

Afternoon class decided they wanted extra recess.

Here are some pictures of our Polar Day”

Homework Tonight

There is math homework in your child’s take home folder tonight. Please take a few minutes to complete the homework together and return it to school tomorrow.

I have approved all the Seesaw assignments that have been submitted. I know a few of you have contacted me to get the codes to log in. If you contacted me you will have them by tomorrow. If you haven’t had a chance to check Seesaw for assignments please take the time to do that. If you need the log in information please let me know and I will provide it to you. If for any reason we would go remote I will be posting assignments on Seesaw.

Happy New Year

I hope your New Year is off to a wonderful start. Mine could have started on a healthier note but it can only get better from here.

This week we have been:

Weighing a variety of objects in Math. I will post a homework assignment tonight. I want to make sure everyone use Seesaw in case we would do remote learning for any reason. Please check Seesaw sometime by Monday.

We continue to expand our knowledge of how we use letters and sounds to make words. We also learned how to use our computers to listen to stories.

Learning about the Oceans and Continents culminated in making a model of the Earth today. These activities are all meant to introduce these concepts.

I am getting excited to see what tomorrow will bring. Teachers get just as excited as students to hear about the possibility of a snow day.

The next week!

I began this post on Monday and the original title was “The Next Two Weeks”. My apologies for not getting it out to you on Monday evening. As some of you know I have not been feeling well this week. the official diagnosis is Bronchitis. Fortunately the antibiotics have kicked in and I am beginning to feel better.

It is a Hambright tradition to collect hats, mittens, scarves and socks for families in our communities that need these items. If you are able and willing to send an item in it would be appreciated. We put a Christmas Tree up in the lobby and decorate with the items that are collected. Items will be collected until Thursday, December 23.

Our 6th grade Spirit Committee has scheduled two spirit days. On Dec. 22 wear Comfy cozy clothes or pajamas. Anything warm and fuzzy. On Dec. 23 Wear festive clothing.

Today our Gingerbread Man went loose in the school. We searched all over for him but he was no where to be found. He did leave us some cookies. If you happen to see him please let us know, but I am pretty sure he went home and we will not being seeing him again.

It was a terrific Tuesday!

It was so nice to see everyone today. The break was nice, but it is always good to get back to the routine. I hope you enjoyed the holiday break and some time with your family.

Speaking of holidays that is what we will be reading about over the next couple of weeks. Today we read a story about Hanukah. We will also be reading gingerbread stories, reindeer stories and stories about Kwanzaa. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about these topics. I would also also you to talk with your child about the traditions of this time of year. many children in class believe in Santa and some do not practice this tradition. Please coach your child to be sensitive to other children.

Please know that I will take the children outside for recess as long as it is 32 degrees. Dressing your child to be outside for 10-15 minutes in the cold is important. If you need winter coats, hats, or gloves please let me know. I will see what I can do.

I have a job that can easily be done at home. I need small popsicle sticks glued together to make triangles. I will provide the sticks and a hot glue gun. This is a great opportunity for someone to help out that can not come into the classroom.

I appreciate each one of you and what you have done to support our classroom this year, THANK YOU SO MUCH!

A little late, but here are some pictures from our Feast. I believe they are saying

Happy Thanksgiving!

No Morning Kindergarten tomorrow- Monday, November 22

Just a reminder that there is no morning kindergarten tomorrow, Monday, November 22, 2021.

Afternoon kindergarten will come for the whole Early Dismissal Day, 9:00-1:30. They can take the bus to and from school and should have already ordered lunch.

We will also be going to the book fair at 12:50. Please leave any money or notes in the folder. I do check them daily. I get very bust in the morning and handing me notes is not a good idea.

Thanks
