Thank you all for the sweet cards and treats on Valentine’s Day. I hope that everyone had a wonderful break!

Please watch for important information and field trip permission slips to come home this week- Art Barn and a Mining in school field trip.

If you are new to our school, you will receive a permissions slip shortly.

This week we are learning:

IB Unit- How We Organize Ourselves: Rocks and Soil


  • We will be exploring and classifying earth materials: rocks, soil, air, water using the senses. We will explore a variety of books and videos to gain more information. Some other books that we will read are: Sylvester and the Magic Pebble, A Pebble For Your Thoughts and connect our study to our work last week on kindness.
  • Science:t studying and comparing a variety of rocks and soil
  • Phonics: Review all long vowel pattern words: cvce (bossy e), ee,ea,oa etc
  • Sight words: people, then, his. (list C) if your child already recognizes these sight words ask them to practice writing them in sentences using their phonetic spelling, for ex: We r (are) on the bot (boat).


  • Drawing, labeling, stretching out words to be able to write the beginning, ending, and middle sounds. Students should be correctly spelling sight words.
  • Every Monday we will be doing a narrative write about our weekend. In addition, we will be Informational writing about earths materials.


  • Decomposing within 5 (students that mastered this will work within 10) Focus on subtraction
  • Word problem Friday: learning strategies to solve word problems that are read by the teacher.

Help! If your child is wearing shoes that tie, make sure they know how to tie them. There are several videos with “tricks” that may help you find the perfect way that fits your child.

Ms. Harris is looking for Kindergarten and 1st Grade students who are interested in performing on March 7th at 6:45 PM for Specials Night. If your child is interested in taking part in the performance please fill out the survey below. Because the performance space is small, Ms. Harris will only be able to take a limited number of students. Performance spots will be assigned on a first come first serve basis. No after school rehearsals are required because students are learning the music during specials time.


You will receive a confirmation email with more details. If Ms. Harris is not able to place your student in the performance, your child will be placed on a waiting list. Please note, that filling out this survey does not guarantee your child a spot in the performance.


*Contact Ms. Harris at Collett.Harris@Cobbk12.org with any questions
