    Valentine's Day falls on Ash Wednesday.  As per school guidelines, there are no class celebrations on Ash Wednesday or during Lent.  Birthday parties are an exception.  We will have our class Valentine Party on Tuesday, 2/13. Please send in supplies on Tuesday.  If your child would like to pass out Valentines, they are welcome to do so.  We have 14 children in the class.  Plese do not address the Valentines, just sign your child's name.

    Religion- Valentine's Day.  We will discuss the special people in our lives who we love.
    Lent- Father Cona will be coming to give us ashes and to bless the class on Wednesday.  The children will learn that Lent is a time to prepare for Easter.  We will brainstorm ways that the children can serve their families during Lent.

    Shape- Heart

    Science- We will continue our study of animals in the arctic.  We will conduct experiments to find out how polar bears keep warm and in such a cold environment and how penguins stay dry.  The children will also demonstrate how camouflage helps animals hide in the arctic and why it is needed. Our Tinker Tub for the week will be to build shelter/igloos out of "ice cubes" for polar bears.
    Scholastic- Valentine's Day is for Friends.   

    Our Author of the Month for February is Jaqueline Woodson, celebrating Black History Month.  Please send in a picture of your child that shows something unique to them; a talent, a hobby or activity. Help them to be prepared to talk about thier picture with their classmates.

     

     

    STEAM- We will start working with Tinker Tubs.  These are bins filled with a few different types of manipulatives.  The children will use creativity and their imagination to problem solve.  This week will focus on building a shelter/igloo out of "ice cubes" for polar bears.

    Have a great week!
