Happy February everyone. I hope everyone gets to enjoy the Super Bowl. We celebrated the Patriots on Friday the 2nd. Hopefully we can celebrate again this week!
On February 14th at 8:30 in the morning, we will be putting on a special presentation with our reading buddies in the library. This is a very special tradition for family and friends. It should last about an hour. Make sure to bring your recording devices. In the afternoon at 1:00, we will have our Valentine's Party. The kids have voted to do "make your own sundaes". The room moms will put a sign-up genius on line. The kids should be making a box at home to hold their valentines. I will be sending home a class list to help with spelling of names.
We will be taking a break from Wonders this week. We will concentrate on Social Studies and Science and do some fun writing activities. The spelling list will be posted on the spelling page.
We will be taking our Unit 4 Math test this week also. Please have the kids study their multiplication facts a little each night. They should be concentrating on 2's through 5's.
We are enjoying the "Wayside School" series. Ask the kids to tell you about it.
We also had fun playing the original "Oregon Trail" game on the computer. Unfortunately, none of us made it, but we had a great adventure on the way. The kids had a blast!
Hope to see everybody on the 14th.
Let the kids be kids. Every child has a strength. It is up to the teacher to find it or tap it so they can work to their highest potential. I tend to set the bar very high. Lifetime memories should be made in the classroom and at school. NBCS should be a place where kids enter happy and go home with a smile on their face. I want my kids getting up in the morning begging to go to school!
