February 15, 2019  

 We made it to the 100th day of school! What a week. The highlight this week was definitely reaching day #100 on Wednesday. We made hats, counted from 1-100, from 100-1 and thought about what we’d do with $100. We also thought about what we’d want to have 100 of, and what we definitely don’t want 100 of. The children also learned about writing numbers in the hundreds, and how they have 3 digits.In addition to celebrating 100 days this week, we celebrated Presidents Day as well! The children made their own flags and we had a small America celebration on Friday to get ready for our long weekend. The boys and girls also did a writing activity this week and they thought about what law they would enforce as president. Most of these candidates would get my vote, that’s for sure. They are hanging in the classroom if anyone is interested in reading them!

 We started transitioning from presidents to money at the end of the week. We started talking about which Presidents’ faces we see on coins and bills, and what the different coins mean. I put out a matching game that had different coins on it as well, and next week we’ll sort coins and explore money even further. The rainy weather kept us inside a bit this week, but we had fun playing indoor recess games and doing new activities. Swimming was unfortunately canceled this week due to the torrential rain, but hopefully next week things will go back to normal.

 

Reminders:

  • There will be no school Monday, February 18.
  • We swim every Thursday! Feel free to send in a bathing suit/towel at any point during the week.
  • Please make sure your child has a (weather appropriate) change of clothing, bedding and an earthquake kit in their cubby.
  • Please check your child’s folder (by the sign-in papers) for any important information.

Have a great weekend!

A note from  Erna Van Dyk, (Art teacher)

Last week when it was raining we drew a person with an umbrella. This was a directed drawing lesson. We used basic shapes and turned it into objects. circle= umbrella, rectangle = raincoat, bubble letter L = boots

The children loved it! Apparently they were repeating it in class during the week

This week we were ready for Popsicle weather. This was a technique lesson. We took markers and colored on a plastic bag, added water to the Popsicle shape to activate the marker, then we put the bag down on the Popsicle shape to get the watercolor effect.
