Scientific, Fabulous, Friday!

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all doing well on this rainy Friday afternoon!

This week we have been focusing a lot on our color words, math and writing names. After a quick assessment today, I am happy to say almost the whole class knows their color words (meaning that they can read the word and tell me what color it is!).

We worked a lot with shapes this week, continuing with playing math games, counting sides of shapes and putting shapes back together in a puzzle format. By the end of next week, we should be completed with Unit 2 and when we come back in the New Year, we will be moving on to Until 3! Time is surely flying by now!

We are continuing on with our Jingles, Poems & Rhymes unit in Happily Ever After. We have been working hard with deciding if certain sounds come BEFORE or AFTER each other. This is a great game to play on the go. You can simply clap and then snap, or any combination you would like and then you can ask your child if you clapped before you snapped or after.

We have been diligent on writing our names on our papers this week. Whenever we had free time, I took kids with me to practice their names one on one. They love writing with markers on my dry erase board!
We had such a great day today in the science lab experimenting with candy canes! We put four separate candy canes in a cup of oil, vinegar, water and soda. The kids watched with excitement to see which ones would dissolve and which would stay perfectly the same. Make sure to ask your child what our results were!

Next week is our last week before vacation! I can’t believe this calendar year is already coming to an end. Make sure to send in those folders and bags next week as we will be doing some “spring” cleaning in our room and making the room ready for vacation!

We will be having a PJ day on the last day of school next week! Let’s end our week with some cheer, comfy clothes and maybe, just maybe a dance party!!

Reminders:
Treehouse will be closing early on Monday, December 17th at 5:00pm due to a staff holiday party.
NO treehouse Thursday, December 20th– Early dismissal at 1 pm.

Thanks everyone! Have a great weekend!!
