Almost 100 Days!

by Steve Krile

This Week


We worked with dollars and cent notation this week.  We also practiced reading several graphs this week.  

Our class continues to discuss even and odd numbers. Please work on counting by 2’s, 5’s and 10’s from ANY number.

We practiced finding the rules for frames and arrows, used a balance scale to compare weighs of school tools and continued to use cubes, rods and flats to help with place value.

We also just started talking about part and total.



Our morning snacks supply is LOW!

Our Valentine’s party will be on Thursday, February 14th at 2:30.

Reading and Writing


This week we read books all about Groundhog Day! With the weather the last few days we are not sure what Phil will do??

In writer’s workshop this week the kids continued circle books based on If You Give A Mouse A Cookie by Laura Numeroff. The children have created books that start with an idea. Then the main character gets distracted over and over until finally the book is brought back to the original idea.

So far we have If You Give a Chihuahua a Ball Gown, If You Take a Dragon to the Disco, If You Give a Dog a Bone, and If You Give A Pony a Pancake.

Social Studies and Science


Goldfish and snails arrived in Kriletown this week. We learned goldfish live in fresh water and breath through gills. Our fish eat fish flakes and are about one and half inches long. All of the fish are gold, but some have white bellies and some have white spots.


Our SPECIAL KID this week was Sindhuja! Sindh loves pink, pizza, is good at making her brother laugh and speaks TWO languages!!
