Scholastic Update

Our orders have been shipped and are due to arrive by the end of the day on Friday. If they come in early enough, I will do my best to send them home with kids on Friday.

I am excited to say that EVERY student in our class will receive a free book based on our total class order this month!!!!!

I hope they enjoy listening to someone at home read them their new book. I also hope they will all try to read some of it on their own too!

Enjoy!

Butterflies!

We have been learning about butterflies this week with our read aloud titles, poems, seat work, and sing-alongs. We have read both fiction and non-fiction books that have been mostly focussed on the Monarch butterfly. A catchy YouTube song about metamorphosis can be heard by clicking into the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rvGUevGxDk

You can see if your child can tell you some of the facts about Monarchs that we have heard throughout the week such as: an egg turns into a caterpillar, then to a chrysalis or cocoon, and finally into a butterfly; they lay their eggs on milkweed plants; the caterpillars eat milkweed plants to grow big enough to shed their skin 4 or 5 times before they transform into a chrysalis; when the chrysalis splits open out comes a Monarch butterfly; when the wings are dry, they can fly away; and around this time of year, the Monarchs fly south to Mexico.

Lock Down Drill Today

Some of you may have already heard from your children about today’s lock down drill. It was the first one of the school year, and I want to let you know that all students did a wonderful job with the procedure. They quietly went to our meeting spot and sat patiently with minimal whispering at times. I feel confident that if we were to have an emergency situation that required us to be in a lock down that my students would follow protocol and keep themselves calm, quiet, and safe throughout.

I was very proud of them today!
