Hi! Can you believe we are at April Vacation already? Where has this week gone?!!! It's exciting that we will have our entire school back in session full time when we return. We will also be getting all of our specials back! Things are slowly showing signs of normalcy!
We have been very busy learning about the rainforest. We made rainforest song books that tell about each layer. We've also been learning about Nabimia with Go2Science. We made life size baby animals. They are so cute but way bigger than we thought they would be! Many chose to take one home to make during vacation, too!
Miss Russell read us a book called Bandaids. We then wrote list poems about times we've needed bandaids. The best part was that they were on bandaids that we designed ourselves.
We learned how to draw 3D shapes in math. We continued talking about vertices, flat faces and curved surfaces. We also practiced naming shapes: pentagon, hexagon, trapezoid, rhombus, cylinder, sphere, rectangular prism, cube and polygon. When we return from break, we will be on our last chapter in math which is a review of the year.
The weather has been so wonderful! We sent home all extra clothes and blankets to be washed and exchanged out. This time of year we find either the clothes have gotten too small or they're too warm. Please make sure your child returns to school with their blanket or towel (if they brought one home), an extra change of clothes in a labeled bag and a sweatshirt or sweater. Our rooms tend to run cold.
We have noticed our markers are running out. If you would like to buy a new pack for your child's pencil box, I'm sure s/he would love it!!
