This week Marjory and Judy sent home a September calendar with the sharing schedule. Sharing time a little different this year. Each Friday, six students will have the opportunity to share something with their classmates, so each student should get to share about once a month. For sharing, we ask that students bring something that is educational or anything that is about them, absolutely NO TOYS. If a students is absent on his/her sharing day, he/she will get another opportunity the next month as we do not have time to add him/her to the following Friday.
The September calendar also includes the Birthday Timeline schedule for students with August and September birthdays. June and July birthdays will be added to our May calendar. For the Birthday Timeline, each student should bring in pictures that represent each year of his/her life. Please send no more than two photos per year of your child's life, and include a brief description about each picture so that we can help your child talk about the photos during the Birthday Timeline.
Next week we will start prep work for our worm bin and our lessons will be about worms. Students will have lessons on vertebrates and invertebrates, and parts of the worm, and we'll be adding several wormy works around the class. We're excited about getting our worm bin started and sure the kids will love the lessons.
