Weekly Newsletter for 3/14/14

Dear Room 4 Families,

Our field trip to CuriOdyssey is next Thursday. Please remember to:

  • Bring your child’s labeled car seat to school on Thursday morning.
  • Be on time! If our class has left, your child will spend the day in another classroom.
  • Pack a lunch in a disposable bag with your child’s name on it.
  • Dress in Stonebrae colors or Huskywear if able. This is not required, but helps make your child easier to spot at CuriOdyssey.

We currently have enough chaperons that have completed the field trip authorization process and are district approved. Parents, family members, and friends who are not authorized with the school beforehand may not join our field trip. This is for your child’s safety!

Our Room 4 students have been continuing to learn about the plant cycle this week. We have been creating collages of flowers in the style of Eric Carle, learning about the parts of a plant and the plant cycle in Mandarin, and have been observing a flower bulb to see when it will bloom.

English Language Arts

Working on: closed syllables, short-vowel/long-vowel spelling, pronouns, plural,  diagrams and labels, homophones, , and publishing our writing.
