MUSIC TRIVIA CHAMPS: TEACHER PATTY’S TEAM!

Congratulations to Luc and Slade, who were on Teacher Patty’s champion team for music trivia! I, Teacher Jennifer, proudly took second place with Hannah and Leeanne by my side. Tons of fun was had by all!

THIS WEEK IN MATH: WEEEEEE’RE GREAT!

I will start off by letting all of you know that once again, I have been told that we have a “phenomenal” class. On Friday morning, we were observed by Dr. Arly Petters, who is writing a math textbook and was interested in seeing our class. He was accompanied by Ms. Ardith, who has visited us in the past with Maestro Wil. Dr. Petters was warmly welcomed by the students while he observed our Math lesson. Many of them volunteered to fill him in on important details, like: the token bag, the “days of school” chart, and why we have a welcome ceremony. I am very proud of my students for their poise and participation while being observed by our guests.

ASSEMBLY NEXT WEEK: WHY MOSQUITOES BUZZ IN PEOPLES’ EARS

If we can get it together (optimism is bliss!) our class will be performing a dramatization of the story “Why Mosquitoes Buzz in Peoples’ Ears” on Thursday, April 26th. We’re also planning on going to ABC Preschool on Friday, April 27th to perform for both classes of preschoolers. Be on the lookout for an official permission slip for that trip. We also need volunteer parents with golf carts to drive us over there… if you are able to bring us, please let me know.

We continue to study this wonderful book during Language Arts this week. The book’s main message is to be accountable for your actions, and not to pass blame or spread rumors. Come see us act it out on Thursday morning!

SCIENCE

This week the students developed their hypothesis regarding what would happen when sunlight passed through a triangular prism. Teacher Laurie will be wrapping up our unit on colors this coming week. The children will have a Science test on Thursday, April 26th.

MEMORABLE QUOTES

~Jackson, during a game of sight-word bingo, while looking at the word “no” which was upside down: “Oh, I get it! When it’s upside-down, it’s ou, but when it’s upside-up, it’s no!”

~Anonymous student, when the word “smack” came up in our Language Arts word sort: “Teacher, I like you ’cause you don’t smack us!”

KARATE

Karate class is on for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of this week. Sensei has also suggested that students attend class at the dojo on Thursday and Friday evenings at 5pm.

Also, please remember to send Karate fees in promptly, especially if payment has not been made recently. Your support is greatly appreciated!

NO-UNIFORM DAY IS ON FRIDAY, APRIL 27TH BUT WE STILL NEED TO BE IN UNIFORM BECAUSE OF OUR FIELD TRIP TO ABC PRESCHOOL

Sorry, I know I’m going to burst a few balloons here, but that’s the way it goes. Direct your kids’ complaints to me… it’s my fault for planning the trip that day.

Thanks for visiting our website, and be sure to leave a comment in the box… I LOVE reading them! (and sending them to my family) 🙂
