Update Email list for Room Parents

One of our room parents Lauren, would like to update her email list so she can email all parents in our class directly. (She likes to send fun, sneaky, surprise emails 🙂 If you did not get the winter party email directly from Lauren, please email her at laurenbrengarth@gmail.com if you would like to be on Lauren’s direct email list.
Thank you!

Yay for the Fast Pass!

Our class earned the Fast Pass! What is the Fast Pass? It is a reward to recognize classes with great behavior at recess and lunch. When a class earns the Fast Pass they get to keep Flash the Timberwolf in their classroom for the week and be the first class to go through the lunch line all week!

Fall Party

Our fall party was wonderful! The kids got to play poke the pumpkin for yummy prizes, pumpkin ring toss with glow necklaces as well as enjoy some tasty snacks! The kids also got to make a fall lantern. The party had such a nice vibe with the tea lights glowing and the party music playing in the background. Thank you so much to Lauren, Lesley, and Robin for organizing! Also thank you to the many families who sent supplies and attended the party. It was a very special experience for the kids!

Thank You!

Thank you to everyone for your support and kindness over the last few weeks with the loss of my Grandma. It has been so hard but all your kind emails, cards, and hugs have helped! Spending my day with your little lovely has helped too! This morning our wonderful room parents even brought a beautiful succulent garden, card and poster decorated by the class to cheer me up. Thanks again to everyone!

Learning Lately

Reading: We finished up practicing c and o this week. Each day, we continue to play sound games to break words apart and put them together in different ways like beginning sounds, ending sounds, rhyming words and syllables. We worked on basic reading skills by reading a simple book as a class. We used the pictures to give us clues about the words, we pointed to each word as we read going left to right and we focused on finding the sight word “the”.

Writing: We worked on adding details and labels to our writing. We worked together to make a list of family words that kids can copy down to use in their writing. We also worked on checking our work to see if it is truly finished- if often takes a few days to finish a piece of writing!

Math: We worked on sorting by attribute and guessing our friends rules for sorting. We sorted many objects including play money as an introduction to learning about money later in the year. We used our knowledge of attributes to build repeating and growing patterns.

Science and Social Studies: We enjoyed a Mystery Science video about what it might be like to live on the moon. We continued our work with weather by observing the clouds. We also worked on science process skills like observing and recording in a science notebook. We had a special guest speaker, Mrs. Naylor, who came to help us get to know her mother, Beulah Ralph. We also learned a little more about Mrs. Ralph and her important work helping desegregate Columbia Public Schools and promote equality in education!
