Ms. Leah's Class - Room 103
Hello Room 103 Parents, April 3, 2017
Kindergarten and First grade students continue to work with our vowel unit in Language Arts. We are currently on long vowel E. I’ve recently had so many students asking to read aloud to the class, that I’ve had to start pulling sticks to keep it fair! I am very proud of all of them!! We have so many Kindergarten “readers”!! Thank you for supporting their reading efforts at home. Just a few minutes each evening makes a huge difference.
In math, Kindergarten students are working on representing, counting, and writing numbers 20 and beyond. First grade students are comparing numbers using numbers and operations in base ten.
This month in science we will begin our weather and water cycle unit. In social studies we will learn about wants and needs.
This month in our character education program we will be discussing responsibility.
As always, a HUGE “Thank you” to Zachary’s Mom (Heidi) for volunteering her time in the parking lot, not once, but twice a week, in the mornings and helping in the classroom as well. I am so grateful! If you would like to help with either, please let me know.
More info to follow but we have the opportunity to go on an all school field trip to Chase Field April 25th.
D-backs Field Trip Day – Tuesday, April 25th
9:00AM – Gates open
9:30AM – 1PM – STEM Festival around the stadium including STEM stations, petting zoo, inflatables and more
10:00AM – 12PM – Programming on the field
12PM – 1PM
– Lunch (students may eat lunch in the stadium seats)
1PM – Field Trip Day ends
Leukemia foundation collection boxes will go home today as well. Just know, this too has been made into a classroom competition. The class that collects the most to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society will win a free meal from Olive Garden. Please help your student collect what you can.
We need to start collecting items for our class “Kids Raffle Basket”. Our class has voted to make a POKEMON basket. Please send in any and all Pokemon items a.s.a.p. and we will put the basket together at school.
As it warms up, please remember to send a water bottle to school with your child. It is disruptive to the class when students need to leave the room to get a drink and they need to have it on the playground with them as well. Thank you!
