Short but sweet week!

This week is a short one, but that does not mean it isn’t going to be jam packed! I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend.

We had so much fun with the 100th day that we extended our 100 day activities into today.  We had some more of our very yummy trail mix, worked on our 100 Day sight word book, finished our 100 day fun book (counting by 1s, 5s, rolling 100, writing about what life will be like when we are 100 years old, what can we do in 100 seconds, where can we get in 100 steps and so on!).

We also had a very special guest reader, Mrs. Wieler.  She made everyone VERY hungry with her stories. It is nice to see so many parents taking the time to come in and read to the kids.  It shows kids that we support their literacy!

We did our spelling today, just the lesson.  Tomorrow morning is our field trip to the Science Gallery but we will still be doing the spelling test in the afternoon.  I did not get a chance to send extra practice homework with them today, my apologies.  The photocopier hates me and I couldn’t get it to print!

The science gallery is going to be fun!  We have been learning so much about our senses, how they help us, how they protect us, how they make things like walking through a garden, listening to praise and worship music, or eating homemade cookies so much more experiential.

We have started listening to some new praise and worship music in 1A.  This week we sampled Tobymac (Burn For You), Kari Jobe (Our God), and Philmont (Closer).

This week we have some other fun things planned – guided reading (everyone is jumping a group I am so excited!), a fun science experiment testing insulators and working with prediction, hypothesis, and outcomes, working on word problems, an exciting chapel, math games, and SO MUCH MORE!!!

Blessings
