February 2020 News


We are officially past the half way point of winter and the ground hog did not see his shadow!  We are studying the Unique curriculum “Natural or Man Made”.  Our story is “Places on a Map” and our vocabulary is land, water, nature, ocean, forest, mountain, lake, city, and map. Our word wall words are by, a, live, you, that, part, find, some, many, made, place, and people. We have a social studies focus with the language as we sort vocabulary into land and water forms and we are also still studying the science of winter with hibernation.  We are counting and adding snowboards, snow tubes, helmets, goggles, and hot chocolate.  We are still counting by tens to 100.  We count by twos, both odd and even numbers during our calendar time each day. We also have a count down to Summer Break to warm us up.  We are reading the book “Valentine Mice” and we watch an online video along with the story.  Our quiet time visualization is Peace Out Snow and our character word is friendship.

February pretend play is birthday and Valentine party as well as using the magnetic tiles to build shapes and telling stories with what we have built.  Miss Pam and Miss Jennifer are busy seeing students for speech/language and occupational therapy sessions.  They plan a fun group each week for the students with a Valentine focus.

We will have early dismissal at 11:00 on Friday, February 14 for school improvement and no school on Monday, February 17 for President’s Day.

Please check your REMIND app regularly for any updates.  Please make sure to call any student absence to the elementary office or message the REMIND app.

Watch local stations for inclement weather days. And a reminder to parents is that the students go out for recess unless the temperature is below 30 degrees or if it is raining.

Let’s hope the spring warm up is soon!
