Ms. Hahn’s Newsletter
Feb. 27, 2022
During reading the students have been reading Sled Dog School. The students have answered questions and discussed the book with the class. Some of our whole group lessons have been practice time for the IAR tests. We will continue reading this book in the coming weeks.
The class has finished their information writing piece. The students added a conclusion and lots of details. They also added a bibliography, a table of contents, and a glossary. Next week we will do some short writing pieces and use writing time to prepare for our student-led conferences.
In math, the students are learning about angles, lines, line segments, and rays. They have been using pattern blocks to learn about angles. On Friday, Ms. Harper read the book Sir Cumference and the Great Knight of Angleland. Many students were convinced she was reading a true story even though it is fiction. Next week they will be using protractors to measure angles and learning more about polygons.
Nature Time, Social Studies
During nature time we took a walk near Lake Leopold and the horses while trying to avoid falling on the ice. The students noticed many signs of winter even though the weather was mild that day. Naomi taught the class about animal sounds. They listened to a variety of bird calls. Students also learned what animals are the loudest.
We have begun social studies by learning about the oceans and continents. A highlight for the class was listening to the songs about oceans and continents. Students will begin learning about the different regions of the United States next week.
This trimester the parent-teacher conferences are student-led conferences. Students will be working on a presentation for you with work samples. They will be telling you areas they are doing well and areas for improvement. Conferences will be held via zoom with more than one break-out room. Ms. Harper and I will join the break-out rooms to see your child present information and answer questions.
