|Lucy was kind enough to bring 3 of her bunnies to school last week. Please let me know if your child would like to bring a pet to school for sharing. We will be studying reptiles & birds next month.|
I cannot believe that this is the last post of 2011! I thought it might be fun to have the students reflect on their favorite things about the first part of the school year. Most of them had difficulty choosing just one thing! Some of them allowed me to share their thoughts with you…
“I liked the marsh trip because we saw lots of cool birds and other animals. I also like the timeline of life because you get to write lots of things about how life began and draw pictures. And I liked making math problems with dice.”
“I like the checkerboard because it’s fun doing big problems and feeling proud of myself when it’s done. I liked the camping trip because the class got to go on a cool and fun trip.”
“I liked the compound words because there were a lot of hard words. I also liked all the skits we did and the timeline when I got to find the first Montessori school and the first person on the moon. I also liked Lucy’s bunnies and Ghost was my favorite.”
“I liked the Maine Huts & Trails trip because we got to sleep on cool bunks and I got to sleep on the top bunk. I also liked the bunnies because they were really cute. The timeline of humans is very interesting and I am learning a lot about early humans.”
“I like the subtraction snake game because I like making a golden snake.”
“I liked the checkerboard because it helped me with multiplication and it made multiplication easier. I also like division.”
“I like the big Russia project and I liked the awesome camping trip.”
“One of my most favorite parts is the timeline of humans. We got to do a bunch of skits about it and we’re learning about Australopithicus and Homo habilis. I also like division because it’s new and we’ve never done it. Its fun laying out the skittles and beads.”
” I liked the first day of school and I liked the first time when I traced a puzzle map and I liked the marsh. I like the bunnies and I like when you write down a math problem and do it.”
“I liked when everyone got to hold my bunnies and I liked tracing puzzle maps. I like the stamp game because it is easy and fun.”
“I liked when the bunnies smelled my shirt.”
The Meadowbrook teachers are looking forward to finishing up organization projects we started over the summer & creating and putting out new classroom works over the break. I wish you all a restful break and a happy holiday! We’ll see you on TUESDAY January 3rd.
Can anyone help out with laundry next semester? If every family takes two turns we will be covered through the end of the school year. The dates are below. Please let me know if you are able to help. Thank you in advance!
If you would like to schedule a classroom observation for the 2nd semester, you may do so at any time. I am setting aside Tuesday mornings for current families to observe. You are welcome any morning, but I will close Tuesday observations to prospective parents. We strongly recommend visiting the classroom at least twice each school year.
