Friday, February 22nd, 2019,

 

What a wonderful and fun week it has been! We loved our President’s Projects, our 100 Day costumes were impeccable and delightful, and we very much enjoyed seeing all of our students’ creativity!

 

What We’re Learning

Math

We will continue to work on telling time, addition and subtraction facts, and breaking numbers up into their individual parts. Please continue to work with your child on reading analogue clock faces and talking about what time things are during the day and how long until expected events to encourage their learning!

 

Literacy

We have started the amazing deep dive into letter writing, adjectives, and opinion writing. Your students are working hard to form their opinions into sentences that make sense, start with capital letters and end with punctuation, use nouns and verbs, and have good descriptive words.

 

Science

This week we are enjoying our fantastic Colorado Weather as we study the Sun and Solar Energy, the Water Cycle, and the importance of Meteorology. Our students are becoming amateur meteorologists as they create their own clouds, understand the importance of the sun, and have a great time experimenting on the water cycle!
