We had a fun Valentine’s Day party with 7-up floats, Rice Krispie treats, secret messages, slime, and tower building. I heard it was the BEST party ever! Thank you parents for your help and support!
We are SO thankful to be back at school and hope all the tricks to get a snow day have been eliminated! Today we had our Kindergarten buddies visit our classroom and we learned that there are times when we have had the trouble called, “NO FRIENDS”. In our story, Love Monster, he had trouble finding a friend and we learned all the things he tried to find a friend. It was a great time to discuss how to find a friend on the playground, in the classroom and on the bus.
I am looking forward to the morning bell wishing everyone back after a long winter break! Just a few reminders about this week! First of all we have PE in the morning. I know of a few students who brought their gym shoes home, so please check the backpack! Also, don’t forget a snack and water bottle.
This week we will begin our reading homework and students have free choice to read whatever they want. In the classroom we will be in book clubs and we will be reading Adventure/Survival stories. I will be modeling lessons while reading The Hatchet. The growth mindset theme for this month is “Feedback… it’s a gift”. We will be practicing peer evaluations throughout this month while in our book clubs.
I wish you a very Happy New 2019 and look forward to our continued work to get our children ready for 5th grade!

For our next unit in reading we are focusing on Informational Texts. Each student is working on choosing a topic to read and study for about a month. A great extension for the reading we will be doing is a project through Grand Valley State University. Grand Valley has a poster competition that I’m hoping you and your child will investigate.
