Book Character Day

March 4th

The Play

We have started practicing the play at school. Over the next few weeks we will run through the play in our classroom and in the Commons. I will send home a costume list next week. We try to keep the costumes pretty low key. For example if your child is a tiger they can wear orange clothing if they have any. No worries if you don’t have the right colored clothing.

Keep practicing lines with your child.

 

Options

We will have Options classes over the next four weeks.

 

This Week

We will start looking at quilts this week. Quilts will guide our math over the next few weeks. We will look at fractions in quilts this week and will begin measurement in inches and centimeters next week. We will be reading Ann Jonas’ The Quilt. We will also explore her books, Reflections and Round Trip, with reversible pictures.

 

Knitting

 

We are still knitting. We have seen our final product, a cat with a collar, and are determined to finish!

 

Morning Drop Off

As some of you may already know, a kindergartner was hit by a car while crossing the street to school last week. While the child is ok, it makes us think about our daily drop offs and pick-ups. If you are bringing your child across the street, please have them stay with you.

 

If you have to cross the street because you are finding a parking spot far from school to bring your child in, feel free to drop them off outside. As we think about 2nd and 3rd grade and are building independence, our children are ready to bring themselves in. This may ease up the morning drop off routine. You decide.

 

Strep

There have been a few cases of strep between our class and Kristin’s. If your child isn’t feeling well or has come down with a strange rash, they may have strep.

 

Sewing

We will soon be sewing in class. Is anyone interested in sewing with us? We will be piecing quilts together, tying them and making rice bags for camp. Let me know if you are interested.
