It didn't take us long to get right back into the swing of the things after our Holiday Break. We are currently combining science and ELA in our study of the rainforest. Our classroom is transforming into a jungle. Thank you for the arts and craft donations. Please check out our Class Photo Gallery to see how these items are being (and will continue to be ) put to great use!
We received some great news this week! We will be visiting the Bronx Zoo as our end of the year field trip. We are studying our rainforest animals and facts extra hard to show them off when we see all of the animals at the zoo. Encourage your students to keep selling lots of fruit to offset the cost of this exciting trip.
We recently enjoyed a great field trip to Siena College to watch a women's basketball game. Although the Siena women weren't able to pull out the win, we really enjoyed getting to watch them on a college campus. We even got to watch one of the players who had come to talk to us at school. Pretty neat! There are some fun photos in our classroom gallery.
This week is Catholic School's Week. Lots of fun activities and events for our class to partake in. Your student should have brought home a letter detailing the events and theme of each day. Tomorrow Is School Spirit Day. The day will end with a Teachers Vs. Students game. Wish me luck! (I think I'm going to need it.)
