April 23 - 28th

As always, we have a busy week ahead of us!

Last week we had quite the adventure to the Iowa Childcare's Museum. The students (and myself!) explored air, crafting, motion, legos, farming, trains, and well much more! It was such a great experience watching the children's eyes light up when they discovered something new. Another big THANK YOU to our parent helpers. We definitely had a surplus of help. Please check out the facebook page to see all the cool pictures of our class!

This week we have Grandparents visiting us on Tuesday and Thursday. They are welcome to visit for breakfast and to check out the classrooms. In our class we have been working very hard on a readers theater piece that we will be performing for our visitors.

Tomorrow (Monday) we will have a presentation from the Midwest one bank on saving money. Sabrina will visit our room to to give a lesson on the value of saving as part of the American Bankers Association Education Foundation’s annual Teach Children to Save Day.

We will also be wrapping up our research projects. Students have been working hard at learning about one particular animal and then taking what they learned and writing about it. We have used the internet, books and other means to find out everything we can!

Keep sending in those box tops! By now you should have received a very bright pink sheet to help you collect those little rectangles. The classes that collects 500 tops will win a root beer float party and the class that collects the most will earn a pizza party!
