We made it! We're officially at the end of our first fantastic week back and school, and I think you're all going to have some pretty tired kiddos making their way home today. We have had a busy week of getting things organized, learning new routines and making new friends. We've also jumped right into our first units of study and have been having a great time outside for lots of activities. Here's how we're starting our year:
L.A. - We'll be spending the first part of year taking an adventure together as we read fiction and non-fiction adventure stories, and spend some time learning about the story structure that makes a great adventure.
Math - Number value is our first unit of the year. Some of us learned a great game to practice our place value skills called "junk it". If you have a dice at home, ask your child to teach you how to play!
Science - Waste in our World is what we have started to explore this fall. We've been outside almost every day this week looking for natural waste and God's garbage crew that cleans it all up. Today we had a scavenger hunt for decomposers out on the playground and we found centipedes, millipedes, bark beetles, wire worms, fungi, and many other cool critters. We love the creepy crawlies!
Social Studies - We are busy exploring the land of Alberta! It seems huge to us, but when you look at all of God's creation, we are a very tiny part of it. Even in this small part of the world, we're going to find many amazing things that are all around us.
We've got a busy year ahead of us and we're looking forward to every bit of it! Please remember that if you have any questions or concerns, you can reach me by email anytime (firstname.lastname@example.org), send me a note in the agenda, or give me a call at the school (403-684-3752). Thanks, and enjoy the weekend!
