Wow!  The Fine Arts program was a home run!

The children did a remarkable job and knocked it out of the park!

(Hahaha, okay I will stop.)

The best part of the whole thing was how much fun they had!

We are heading into Easter break.  We have noon dismissal on Thursday and return on April 24th.  We have several fun things planned for this week, including an Easter egg hunt and a performance by the Tucson Symphony Orchestra Harp Trio.

I hope you have some time planned over break to relax and enjoy yourselves!

Thanks for all you do!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  We are headed into a busy week full of fun and adventure.  We are continuing to be fabulous readers and are working hard on blends.  We are telling time and working with 3D shapes.  We are still chatting about spring and life cycles.  It is exciting to see all the stories that are circular!

On top of all that, we are practicing our songs for Fine Arts night!  Fine Arts night is a fabulous showcase of our primary grades.  The performance starts at 7:00pm in the gym.  Please bring your children to our classroom no later than 6:40.  You then proceed to get a good seat and watch the terrific show.  After the performance you will pick your children up from our room.  That way we ensure everyone is with their parents.

Happy Spring!  We hope everyone had a lovely weekend and got to enjoy our wonderful weather.

Last week finished with a bang!  Our resident leprechaun made a mess of our room, but later apologized for it by leaving us little goodie bags!  The experience made for wonderful writing stories and illustrations!

 

This week, we will be talking about spring, insects, the water cycles and graphs.  We will continue being busy, learning and having fun!

What a great “Love of reading” week we had!  It was so much fun to hear from different authors, wear our pajamas, eat cookies and read with our buddy class! Fun!

This week, we will continue working on math skills and reading.  We will see what kind of notes Danny leaves us!  An exciting week!

Hi everyone!  Last week was amazing!  We came back from break and worked at full speed all week long.  We danced to Tucson High School Steele drum band and ate pancakes.  We learned about Lent in chapel and we saw how TMC works when our ‘lovies’ might need a little extra care!

This week, we will continue getting messages from Danny, the visiting Leprechaun, who has a challenging time with his letters and spelling.  We will also continue working on our numbers and using our hundredths place!  We will be discussing colors, transportation and spring as well!  On top of all that, It is our Love of Reading week!  WOW!! Sounds like a lot!  We will try to fit it all in!

As we close in on our last trimester, I will be reminding my friends to tuck in our shirts, tie our shoes and make sure we look like the “almost” first graders we are!

Welcome Back!

We hope everyone had a wonderful vacation.  It is hard to believe that we are heading into our last trimester!  It will be busy and fun filled!

This week, we will be celebrating Dr. Seuss birthday, rhyming and reading.

Tuesday is Fat Tuesday (Mardi Gras).  We will be enjoying a free pancake lunch.  Your child does not have to bring lunch to school that day, unless they prefer to eat something other than pancakes. 

Friday we are going to the Teddy Bear Clinic at the Tucson Medical Center from 9:00-10:00. Look for a sign up sheet to be posted for drivers and volunteers on Monday morning. We will be departing campus at 8:30, and should be back by 10:30. Your child needs to bring one small to medium sized stuffed animal! This field trip is a wonderful way for our kids to interact with medical professionals in a non-emergency environment.

Happy Valentine’s!

We are going to have a sweet week!

Tuesday we will be celebrating Valentine’s Day!  It is relaxed dress, Valentine’s inspired.   We will finally take our mailboxes home with all of our wonderful cards inside!

Friday is relaxed dress with Rodeo theme.  Jeans, bandanas and hats are an option.  We will be having some Rodeo games with KB.  Sounds like fun to me!

Along with all the festivities we will be working on Arizona’s birthday, and base ten.  We will wrap up our Fabrics unit and discuss President’s day as well.

In short, a rather busy, fun filled week!

Also a quick reminder, the student enrollment contracts for next year are due this Wednesday.

Wow!  What a week!

We celebrated our 100th day of school, we set our Post Office and we went on two field trips!

Our 100 day projects were varied and fun!  Sabino Canyon couldn’t have been more beautiful.

“Charlie Brown” was fun ant the children did a fabulous job!  We are looking forward to working in our Post Office this week.  (Please be sure to send in those Valentine’s 🙂

This week we are going to be talking about kindness, love and hearts.  It promises to be a heartfelt week!
