We have started a new unit in Science on Matter. The kids are really enjoying the activities so far. Next week we will work on finding a mortar that will work best to build “The Three Little Pigs” houses!
I have been out sick with the nasty flu that has gone through Walterville…what a year this has been for me. I apologize for being out so much. But while I was gone, kids got to have the wonderful Mrs. Weber (retired Walterville teacher) and she did some great stuff with them. One of the activities was to build a structure that would hold a book using toothpicks and gumdrops. I will put some of the pictures of the top teams on my blog. Please check out the blog site and sign up for updates on the right side of the weekly news page. Then you will always know when there is something new there! I try to post pictures of activities when possible. http://mspattersonsclassroom.weebly.com/weekly-news
I will send a Valentine list home on Monday for kids who want to get started on Valentines. We will have our party on Friday Feb. 13th at 2pm.
I will also be sending a February calendar and a book order on Monday.
