Thank you to everyone for returning your books! Almost every child returned their books today! The students may keep them for 2 weeks. Due to Thanksgiving break, they get a bonus week with their book.
Tomorrow, Please dress your child in red,white and blue to honor our veteran’s and help us continue to learn about Veteran’s Day!
Today, we had a lesson with our school counselor, Mrs. Weber. We learned about ways we can cool down, when we are angry or frustrated. Howard B. Wigglebottom, learns it’s ok to walk away. Please discuss this with your child.
We have been learning lessons about forces. In Kindergarten, we concentrate on pushes and pulls. The students have really enjoyed our resource Mystery Science. It is a hands on, active science lesson. We used our model wrecking ball to push a wall down. The object was to knock down the wall without knocking down the houses that were close to the wall. We had to adjust the amount of push or how high we pulled the wrecking ball, before releasing it to knock down the wall.
Today, October 19, 2017 is Jumpstart’s Read for the Record!
Our class had the opportunity to participate in setting a new World Record today! Jumpstart is trying to beat the old World Record of the most people reading and listening to the same book on the same day! If you have the opportunity, read the book again tonight to your children! If you do, go to Jumpstart’s website https://www.jstart.org/read-for-the-record/
Thank you to everyone who came to conferences this week. For those of you that I meet with in the next few days, I look forward to getting to know you.
