Wow! What a week! We had 2 guest speakers talk to us about simple machines they use. Ms. Bailey, our speech and language pathologist showed us how she uses simple machines to cut and make fruit salad. We got to sample some delicious fruit after! Thanks Ms. Bailey! We had Jessica from the No Coast Derby Girls come today and talk to us about the wheels on her skates and how she uses them. She had a lot of medals to show us as well and we even got to feel how heavy her skates were. Thank you so much to our special guests. We also talked about pulleys this week. We were surprised by how many things use pulleys. Take some time to look at the pictures form this week on the photos page.
In Second Steps this week we talked about Managing waiting. We talked about calming our body again when having to wait for a long time. While we are waiting there are strategies we can use to help. We can count or sing a song quietly while we wait. Below is the home link to that you can use to help with these strategies at home.
This Thursday we will be having our Valentines parties. The AM class will be starting at 10:00 and the PM class will be starting at 2:45. Please let us know if you would like to join us either by email or the paper we sent home. Send Valentines with only your students name on them please. Thank you for your help with this at it will make passing them out much faster for everyone. If you are in need of a box of Valentines for your child please let us know as we have several extras. We can send them home you you to help your child sign.
Please look for GOLD report cards to come home this week. We can answer any question you have during our home visit.
Thank you for all the you do!
Mrs. Losey and Ms. Jamie
