The 100th day of school is coming up soon and it will be a major celebration! Wednesday February 12th is the 100th day. We will celebrate all day long with special activities about the number 100. One of the things we will do to celebrate is create a 100 Museum that will contain collections of 100 things. We have been talking about ways to show 100 like 100 baseball cards, 100 paperclips or 100 beads on a necklace. Children may need a little help gathering materials, but they should be able to do most of the work themselves. Please send in your collection on Wednesday February 12th.
Valentines day is coming up! Here is a list of students in our class. We encourage students to write out valentines. It is a great way for students to practice fine motor skills like how to hold a pencil, using correct letter formation and building hand strength.

Have a great weekend!
Today we did a cool experiment with Mrs. Erickson in guidance. Here’s what we did:
Step 1. Fill a bowl with water- the bowl is the school, the water is the classroom
Step 2. Shake lots of pepper (pepper people) into the bowl.
Step 3. Fill the pepper people’s buckets’ with sugar (the sweet, kind things we say and do for people). Watch what the pepper people do- they go towards the sugar.
Step 4. Dip a bar of soap into middle of the bowl. The soap is the bucket dipping things we say or do to people. Watch what the pepper people think of bucket dipping. They move away from the soap.
Life Lesson: People want to be around those who say or do nice things and people don’t want to be around people who don’t.
Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to celebrate your child’s writing with us! They really enjoyed the visit and kind comments 🙂
Reminder: NO SCHOOL MONDAY
We ended the day with an All School Share. Lately it has been so cold that we have not been able to go outside and play. During All School Share we had fun sharing different ways we have moved and had fun inside. Here are some of our favorites:
Just a reminder…

A menu change for tomorrow… hot lunch will be cheese filled pizza sticks instead of mini bagel pizzas.
We got a new newspaper today. It was all about push and pull. Darby’s favorite part was the dog because he was on a sled. The dog was being pulled on a sled.
We had fun in math because we got to use geoboards. Maya likes using geoboards!
Some of us wrote music notes during choice time. We are learning how to read music. Quarter notes are tah. Eighth notes are tee tee. Sixteenth notes are teary teary. Check it out!
We are going to have a writing celebration. We wrote an invitation for you. It is in our folders today! Please RSVP by Thursday.
We learned about Dr Martin Luther King JR today. He was a hero! He was hardworking. He gave speeches. He led marches. He helped change the unfair laws so everyone could go to school together.
