Last week we explored the letter 'X' with an X-marks the spot treasure hunt thru our school, made 'x's with pretzels, shared a book about x-rays and even saw a real x-ray of a human spine! In art, tissue paper rainbows were a big hit!
This week, our letter is 'K'. Please brainstorm with your child words that begin with the letter 'k'. We will be making kitchen collages and kites, exploring kaleidoscopes and flying kites. We will have the opportunity to taste kiwi and sort and count keys! Our class photo day will be Thursday at 11:15. If this is not a scheduled day of attendance for your child, you are encouraged to bring them for the photo with our class.

Last week in our class we learned that by mixing yellow with red it makes orange! We explored this concept with paint and also with food color in whipped cream (to dip our apple slices!) This lesson was based on the story "Mouse Paint". In our art area we used a spinner to make spin art and in science we explored the 'm'oon with Oreos and a life-like moon on our wall. Miss Mary Mack was our newly learned song.
This week we will learn about letter 'X' and emotions. Please brainstorm 'x' words and talk about emotions with your child. On Tuesday, St. Patrick's Day, your child may like to wear green! We will be making tissue paper rainbows and going on a treasure hunt to find the 'x' from our 'x-marks the spot' map! We will be making 'x' with pretzels and celery and looking at a real x-ray.
Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to expand your child's knowledge!

We had a super fun Dr. Seuss week last week! We celebrated by trying green eggs and ham after reading the story, wearing Thing 1 and Thing 2 hats after reading The Cat in the Hat, having a fish cracker and blue jello snack after Mr. Hart came in and read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish to us. (He is an awesome storyteller!) We planted flower seeds to symbolize Truffula Trees after reading (the shortened version!) of The Lorax.
This week we will re-visit the letter 'M'. In our dramatic play area we will be shopping in our own 'm'arket, in our art area we will explore 'm'ixing primary colors with a spin art activity and a Mouse Paint activity. Our stories will include: Marvin K. Mooney will you Please Go Now, Are You My Mother?, On Market Street, Messy Room and Mouse Paint. Miss Mary Mack will be our song, and in religion We Celebrate Lent.
Thank you to the families who sent in items for our market, they will be well used!
Have a great week!

Last week was a little challenging, trying to think of letter 'Q' words and finishing up student assessments, so this week we are happy to celebrate the birthday of one of our favorite children's authors, Dr. Seuss! There is no homework this week, instead you are welcome to bring in your favorite Dr. Seuss book to share with the class! Each day we will read Dr. Seuss stories and work on a related art or cooking project.
Here is our week's schedule of activities:
Monday - Learn about Dr. Seuss, read Green Eggs and Ham and make a hat collage
Tuesday - Read The Lorax, decorate pots and plant marigold seeds
Wednesday - Read Horton Hatches the Egg and make silly sculptures
Thursday - Read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish and make a similary themed snack
Friday - Read The Cat in the Hat, watch a theatrical production on DVD of The Cat in the Hat and have popcorn
Also, next week we will be reviewing letter 'M' and turning our dinosaur dig site into a market, where the children can pretend to buy groceries. Please send any empty food containers or boxes that we could add in!
