We have finished up our Study of South America! We are moving up to North America next week. The kids are so excited . When I mentioned our new study, they automatically started shouting out States they wanted to report about. So…. look forward to helping them at home with that. As always they will be given some time in class to work on this however they may choose to work on it at home especially if they choose not to at school 😉 . We will also be covering our bodies which is interesting because several of the students checked out Library books about the body during Library time before I told them where our studies would take us…. Very curious…….
Encourage your little peeps to finish strong. Ask them what works they did during the day. Each day they are given Math works, Spelling, Comprehension, and cultural works to do. They also have a page of a DWLM each day, which focuses on state standards for reading, writing and arithmetic. Twice a week they are given writing practice. So you see, they should be busy little bees… We have a few who are struggling to keep their focus on works that need to be done instead of making sure everyone else is doing their job…. … It causes chaos as works tend to not get done that way…..
Thanks again for all of your support as I have jumped into this new adventure. I am so excited to see where this adventure takes me. I am currently taking the Montessori training so at times it is overwhelming.
Our field trip is coming up on Thursday, April 18th. It is the Disney documentary about penguins to celebrate Earth Day. This is not the field trip to the Clark Planetarium (that is on May 3)
We will meet at the Megaplex theater at the Junction at 8:45 in the morning. You can just drop your children off there instead of school. I currently do not have anyone listed for needing a ride to the theater. If this is not the case, please let me know ASAP by emailing me. firstname.lastname@example.org
The movie will end about 10:30ish. If you are able to transport any children back to the school from the theater please sign up on this wejoinin link: https://www.wejoinin.com/sheets/jsiix. This needs to be done by Sunday (tomorrow)
Unfortunately, we have an extremely limited number of tickets for chaperones. But please put the field trip to Clark Planetarium on Friday, May 3 on your calendars because all parents are welcome to that field trip.
