Dear Parents,

Our class has been hard at work again this week and we’re excited to tell you all about our accomplishments!

We successfully completed Chapter 1 in math and have started Chapter 2, Geometry! On Thursday and Friday we talked about different shapes such as cones, cylinders, and spheres. Afterward, the kids were able to have a scavenger hunt inside our classroom to try and find as many of these shapes as possible. To add a bit of a challenge to the game, we had them help each other without using their voices, they could only use hand motions. It was awesome to see everyone working together pointing or clapping when they found a new object.

Speaking of spheres, we had our second social studies lesson about the seven continents and the Earth’s oceans. Don’t you just love Cross-curriculum!!

Our class is almost finished learning about Oswald and his odd animals too. We played a matching riddle game called, Oswalderee! Once everyone had matched the correct letter to the sound and animal, we all shouted out “OSWALDEREE!” I think that will be a game we play frequently, as we all had so much fun! The kiddos have also been hard at work this week with their handwriting skills! We worked very hard to complete our handwriting sheet of the letter O.

In Art we have been creating! We completed our cities, and beautiful seahorses! We even made owls. I cannot wait for you all to see their masterpieces! This will be our last week in Art as next week we start Music for three weeks.

Fabulous Fun Friday was, as always, fabulous and fun! Towards the end of the day the kids put their imaginations to the test and designed their own odd animal like Oswald with bright play-doh! We surprised the kids with a youtube video of a story I had recorded! Ms. Steele said it was the perfect ending to a busy day!

Wednesday marked our first birthday celebration of the year with Sam’s 5th! Happiest of birthdays to you Sam!

Thank you so much for attending Virtual Parent Night! It was an absolute pleasure seeing everyone!

And before I forget, the Word of the Week is PACIFIC OCEAN.

With love,
Ms. Porto and Ms. Steele
