We began our day today reading a cute story about polar babies.  We began the day with Science again.  We listened for key words so that we could complete the book report we started last week.  They did a great job!  I cannot wait for you to see them. 

After Science, we continued with our songs, calendar, weather, and counting. 

In Religion today, we read chapter 4 in our Christ Our Life workbook and discussed all the wonderful things that God gave us. 

In Math, we continued with tally marks and using our popsicle sticks to count.  After we tallied the marks, we wrote the math sentence to match.  We completed 1 workbook page.

PE uniforms to be worn on PE days: Tuesdays and Fridays.  The other days are regular uniform days.
 [No longer applicable until spring] Summer uniform: The uniform for the boys can be either the shorts with polo shirt or the pants with the button down collared shirt.  The uniform for the girls can be either the shorts or skort with polo shirt or the jumper (or pants) with the peter pan collar shirt. We have PE on Tuesdays and Fridays.  For both boys and girls, the PE shorts and PE shirt will be worn with tennis shoes.  
[Now until Spring] Winter uniform: The uniform for the boys will be the pants, button down collared shirt and the blue uniform sweater.  The girls' uniform is the jumper (or pants) with the peter pan collar and the blue uniform sweater. For both boys and girls, the PE sweatpants and the PE sweatshirt must be worn.  Please make sure the PE shirt is worn underneath the sweatshirt so that the sweatshirt can be taken off if the student gets too hot after running around in PE.   
GOING OUTSIDE FOR RECESS DURING THE WINTER MONTHS: Please make sure you child comes to school with their coat, hats and gloves.  The policy is that any child without any of these winter items will stay inside because they are not properly prepared to be outside.





HOMEWORK THIS WEEK:  1 language arts pages (practice writing the letter F), one math page,  spelling words page and a reading book.

Monday: No School - Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday!

Tuesday: We had a two hour delay so our time was cut short but even though, we managed to do a listening tape for the Letterbook and to do a page in math.  We learned to use tally marks and apply the figures onto a picture graph.  We signed a heart to say what we liked about our school so Bishop Burbidge can see it when he comes to visit our school next Monday, which will be a 12:15 dismissal! We had a short snack and playtime.  During recess, we stayed inside and continued to watch the movie about emporer penguins called the March of the Penguins.  In the afternoon we had a nap, packed up early, decorated paperbags and filled them with food that everyone has donated in the past for ECHO with our fifth grade buddies and lastly we had PE. 

Wednesday: Morning work was writing the spelling words three times each, writing them in index cards to add them to their existing ring of spelling words, I read them two books: The Penguin Quartet and a Minnie Mouse book about a sleepover.  We went over days of the week, months of the year, turned to the next number of 88 days in school and a page in Letterbook.  We figured out the beginning letter of each picture and those first letters put together formed a word, then the students cut pictures and glued them next to the word that was formed. After spanish class, we had math, where we continued with tally marks and pictographs.  We did a Scholastic page on penguins and watched a couple of short videos on the emperor penguins.  After lunch and recess, we had a nap, library, religion and then packed up to go home.
