What a great first week back, but can you believe the SNOW!!! We got outside as much as possible at the beginning of the week to enjoy the warm spring weather – hopefully it will be back again soon!
This week, we also started a new social studies unit: geography. The kids have loved studying maps and globes, reading about different places around the world, and practicing their home address too. Make sure to check in with your child to see if he/she can recite their home address (including their zip code). I will check in with each child later this week to see if he/she can say all the parts to their home address.
April 15 – Library Day
April 16 – Happy Birthday Caleb!!!
Also, I’m not sure if you heard, but we are going to be hatching some chicken eggs in our classroom!!! :) :) :) The kids were so excited about this announcement. On Monday, we added the eggs to the incubator. We have a three varieties of chicken eggs: Ameraucana, Red Cross and White Leghorn.. The eggs will take about 21 days to hatch – we have 15 more days to go! In STEAM, the kids will begin studying animal adaptations and our “class pets” will complement their learning and prepare us for the zoo field trip in a few weeks.
