Happy Friday!

We had an awesome busy first week back!  We’ve started keeping track of our Random Acts of Kindness so if your child does something above and beyond this weekend let me know!  Our field trip is on Tuesday and I now have enough volunteers.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Monday Announcements!

Welcome back!  I hope you all had a lovely and restful break.  Looking forward to digging right back into our learning.

  • Weekly sight words: ran, but, pretty, so, what
  • Weekly Word Family: http://files.hubbardscupboard.org/Word_Family_12.1-_et_sheet.pdf Just a heads up–this is a repeat but this week we are going to review before moving on.
  • If you haven’t logged in to pay for your field trip, please do that this week.  The field trip is next week.
  • Parent volunteers for field trip:  I will need between 3-5 parent volunteers to meet us at the museum and lead a small group of students through the exhibits.  The trip is March 7 in the morning.  If you are able to meet us there, please send me an email.


Pink Shirt Day!

Don’t forget your pink shirt tomorrow.  We’ve had some pretty powerful conversations in our classroom this week about love, inclusion, acceptance, bullying, and that girls and boys should be able to wear/play/work wherever they want.  The students have some pretty powerful things to say about the importance of standing up for people who may look or talk a  little different.  I encourage you to keep these conversations going at home!

Monday Announcements–100 Day Edition!


Let’s give a cheer

100th day is here!

We’ve learned a lot along the way!

Time to celebrate our 100th day!

Hip hip hooray!

Can you believe we have been here for 100 days?  We have all learned so much and I am so proud of each and everyone of my students!  We have a ton of stuff on the go this week and as I’m sure you can imagine, the classroom is buzzing with excitement.  We will not be doing sight words or word families this week–we will resume after the February break.



Another Expert!

We had Dr. Dehghani come to our class in the last hour today and teach us all about the heart.  He is a cardiac surgeon!  We listened to a heartbeat, learned about the MANY MANY things that a heart does in order to keep us strong and healthy, and he even had a real heart that we were able to look at.  Thanks Dr. Dehghani for coming in and teaching us today!

Extra magazines

We are hoping to do a collage art activity.  If you have any old magazines around the house that you would be willing to donate, please send them in.  They will be used for art so I will not be able to return them.

Stir Crazy

We all had a lot of extra energy today.  With the cold weather and indoor recess we are unable to move as much as we need to and this makes learning much harder!  Today, we converted our classroom to a yoga studio and practiced our yoga moves.  The students really enjoyed the video as it tells a story as well.  Today the story was Star Wars!  Here is a link:


This is a great link and she has lots of different stories that all incorporate yoga movements.  I use them with Parker all the time when we can’t get outside.  Parents and teachers–may the force be with us as we deal with this weather!

I sent home scholastic today–due February 3rd.
