Circles Reading Group

Dear Parents,
During guided reading one of the groups is currently reading a world atlas resource guide.  We have already talked about the United States (Pacific Ocean, western US, eastern US, Atlantic Ocean, capital cities, map key and how to read them).  Today we talked about Antarctica and the Arctic.  A couple students requested this website on ice caps to view from home.  These pictures are amazing and the students are very motivated and want to learn more!

Ice Caps

A few reminders:
-please remember to send all snow gear to school.  We are still in winter and the weather is not going to stay this nice until spring.

- Our Valentine's Day party is Tuesday next week.  I am planning on making the cookies and decorating them again.  I have frosting left over and have a ton of sprinkles at my home.  We will be playing math and literacy center games as well as completing some valentine literacy projects.

-Love Lunch will be Monday and Tuesday next week.  Please be prompt.  If you are coming Feb. 13 (Monday) be here by 11:40.  If you are coming Feb. 14 (Tuesday) please be here 11:45.  You can wait for your child right outside the classroom door.  They have recess first and then will be coming in to wash up for lunch.

-Also in honor of Valentines we are going to wear either red or white on Tuesday. 

Have a great weekend!

Mrs. Parker
