Friday Update

Short weeks often feel like such long weeks. But while this week has felt long, it has been a great week. We had our assembly about Stranger Danger in class, learning about how to keep safe and what to do if we need help. We also started a new unit in math on measurement. We learned the rules to measure something properly and then lots of practice around the room with both standard and nonstandard units. It was also the first time in quite a while that we have written our Friday letters, so please remember to respond to them!  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Friday Update

Short week, but lots packed into it! We started talking about the Armour of God in Bible, and this has been an interesting thing to start talking about. We talked about how we have to ‘put on’ the armour, and then we were pretending to do so. But we are also starting to unpack each of them individually, learning what it means to ‘put on’ because it isn’t a literal thing (which some of them are still wrapping their heads around). We also started a new unit in Science all about Water. We did an experiment to start the unit. We hypothesized if it was possible to turn a glass of water upside down, with a card blocking the opening … and there was great excitement when it actually worked!

Friday Update

It was an exciting week this week! We had a surprise Earthquake drill on Monday, and I appreciated how quickly the students stopped and followed instructions. It’s always good to see how we respond when something is unexpected. We also celebrated Valentine’s Day on Wednesday. This was a lot of fun. We did all Valentine’s, all day! So lots of fun and out of the ordinary jobs were enjoyed, as was handing out all the little valentine’s. It was definitely a cold week, so thank you for sending your children dressed appropriately to be outside. We are doing what we can to get them outside as much as possible, as that it the recommendation right now. When dressed appropriately, they all still have fun, but enjoy coming in to warm up after the outside time!
