What’s Happening...


We will be participating in the "Beautiful Stuff" project. As part of this project, we ask each student to collect beautiful stuff from home and bring it to school! We are looking for things from nature, metal, string, ribbon, beads, buttons, paper, and anything you can donate to our project. The "Beautiful Stuff" project aims to investigate what it means for student to sort, discover, and collect materials themselves. There will be a bin outside of the classrooms, please use this to drop off all the "Beautiful Stuff." 


 This month we will learn about plants. During this unit, students will explore how water and light helps plants grow. We will explore different kinds of plants that we eat, including fruit, vegetables, herbs, and seeds, etc. During this exploration, we will discuss the importance of different plants. These investigations will build student understanding of plants and increase their awareness of healthy eating, where food comes from and how plants help us healthy and grow. 


Throughout this unit, we will critically think and inquire about the properties of water. Activities throughout the unit, will prompt the children to learn about water through hands-on explorations and provide opportunities to observe water in our immediate environment. 


Some questions you can ask your child are: 

-What do plants need and where do we find them?

-What are some different kinds of plants?

-What happens when we put things in water?

-How does water help us?


Art with Ms. Lorna


In Art, we are finishing up our "Transportation" and "Clothing" units with collage and weaving activities. In March we will be studying plants- drawing from observation, painting, and making rubbings and prints. We will also begin creating visual elements from our opera performances. 


Warm regards,

Ms. Lorna


Music with Ms. Sarah


This month we are taking songs we already know and adding instrumental to them. It takes a lot of coordination and concentration to sing and play an instrument at the same time! We'll be working on treating our instruments with respect as well as playing "on cue." 

In enrichment, a lot of students have demonstrated songwriting prowess and interest! This month we will be focusing on the ease of composing our own songs using topics that are interesting to us and chords we already know. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!


Reminders


  • Please read to your child everyday.
  • Pack a healthy lunch and snack.
  • Check your child’s mailbox daily.
  • Practice zipping coats and jackets.
