Alana’s dad, Dr. Liberatore came in to talk to us about teeth. He is a teeth expert. He knows a lot about braces and how to keep your teeth healthy. February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. We learned about the four parts of a tooth. We also talked about being responsible and taking care of your teeth. Dr. Liberatore gave us some goodies to help us take good care of our teeth. Thanks Dr. Liberatore!!!! Two lucky friends won a special bag of teeth goodies. This will really help keep their buckies nice and shiny!
Tomorrow is Winterfest. We will be playing and having fun outside. It is going to be cold. Please dress extra warm. Feel free to pack an extra pair of mittens, socks and pants just for tomorrow. Thanks!
Today we learned a new math game called the Number Grid Game! You can play this game at home. All you need is a die , counters and a number grid. Roll the die and move. There is a catch! When you get to the bottom of the number grid, you have to roll the exact number in order to move and win. When students are counting, we are working on keeping the counter in place, counting with our finger and then moving the counter. This helps students develop the concept of hopping or moving up correctly.
Thanks for having fun with us today! We dressed up like 100 year old people in honor of the 100th day of school!
We met Tessa’s dad today. He is going on a long trip to the desert. Tessa’s dad read us a story called My Dad’s A Hero which was about all the great things that dad does while he is away serving in the military. We are going to miss you! Thank you for being so brave!
Due to the snow day we will be celebrating the 100th day of school on Thursday.
Thanks for your help today friends!
