It's the new year and we have a new face in our classroom! Monica Petzold (Miss Petzold) is a student teacher from UVM that will be here until May with us. She is so excited to become a part of our team!
On January 16th there is no school for students because of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
As soon as we can find a child-friendly blog license kids will begin to blog. We will let parents know when to keep an eye out for that!
Now we are learning about famous Americans in class. We started off by looking at the Wright Brothers during read-a-loud. In the next week we will begin to talk about features of nonfiction texts that will help us when we read biographies.
In Math, we are learning about money. We are getting familiar with the different types of coins and how to use them to buy things.
Just a reminder that students should be reading every night at home, including weekends. This practice is so important!
For the past week we have been practicing team building through playing games. One of the games was to arrange ourselves in alphabetical order without talking. Our challenge was to communicate and help others without using our voices.
