Primary C Weekly Note

Dear Primary C Families,

It was so nice to be together with you and your children at The Schuylkill Center this week. We hope you enjoyed hiking to the ponds and stream and learning about the animals from the Schuylkill Center Wildlife Clinic. Aren’t we fortunate to have a great outdoor classroom? We have a few more visits to The Schuylkill Center this year; keep up those tick checks, please.

We started science project work this week. Students are researching their self-selected topics independently, using the index of the many amphibian books in our classroom. They also tried to add what they are learning about amphibians into one of the several poetry forms we have studied.

This week ask me…

...about the dance performance we saw at Encuentro this morning and about Tourette Syndrome. How did the dancer say it affected him?

...how we can check our answers when subtracting. (second grade math)

...to notice when our family uses fractions. Also, ask me what fractions are and when ¼ can be larger than ½. (Jane’s math group)

...what my science project topic is.

...about my amphibian poem.

...to sing the "I’m a Frog" song to you.

...about this week’s Words with Wings read-aloud.

Reminders:

If your child has a summer birthday and he or she would like to do an in-class birthday celebration, please email us to schedule a time.

There is no school for students on Friday, 5/26 and Monday, 5/29.

Enjoy EATS. Bid early and often!

All the best,

Jennifer and Jane
