March 8

Another fun week has passed quickly by!

We read and wrote poetry, became entranced by the Magic Tree House series of chapter books, took class surveys and learned how to present data, attended an AMPed session and explored light and shadows. Today we learned the terms: opaque (no light shines through), translucent (some light shines through) and transparent (light shines through).

Next week is Book Week and it is going to be another busy week!

Here are some reminders for the week:

Monday, Mar. 12- We are kicking off Book Week by wearing our pajamas to school and bringing a favorite book and stuffed animal to class. To make the day extra special we are also asking each child to bring a sleeping bag or blanket that can be folded in half. We will set up the blankets all over the floor and have a big Book-in-a-Bag read-a-thon!

Tuesday, Mar. 13- Library day, return books!

Thursday, Mar. 15- 8:10 to 8:30 Publishing Party! Please come to 1B to celebrate the students nonfiction writing. In a small group, you will listen to several children read their writing aloud. Then in your home language you will write a compliment to the students. We hope to see you there!

Friday, Mar. 16- Dress as a favorite book character. The students will celebrate reading by attending rotational literacy based activities sponsored by our PSA.

* I will be absent from school tomorrow. Mr. Daniel Suh will be my sub. If your child’s after school transportation plans change tomorrow, March 10, please email Lisa Lai or Daniel Suh
