April, 2014 Newsletter
In March we celebrated Samantha, Erik, Emily, Maisie, Joe, Nathan, Jack, and Michael’s birthdays. Olivia, Katie, Zavion, and Ashley were Miss Laura’s Star Students and made fantastic presentations!
In March our morning themes were Dr. Seuss, rainbows, St. Patrick’s Day, and lions/lambs. They were each enhanced with literacy, science, social studies, and math components. Miss Laura’s class did such beautiful work on their Dr. Seuss book reports. They are now hanging in our classroom. Our full day students rotated between afternoon weeks of math, language, social studies, and science, with literacy activities mixed in everyday with themes of science (wind), literacy (ducks for our younger students and an author study for our older), social studies (safety), and math (Math with Chicken Little). Thank you to Joe’s mommy, a veterinarian, and her technicians for coming in and showing us a turtle, some lizards, and a snake, showing us x-rays of animals’ bellies and what they swallowed, and telling us all about her job. In April our morning themes of study will be bunnies/eggs, spring, Earth Day, and caterpillars/butterflies. Each week there will be a new letter of the week based on our theme. Our afternoon themes will be pancakes (Social Studies), Kite Math, recycling, and B is for Bear (Miss Tiffany) the author Julia Donaldson (Miss Laura).
