What's going on in Room 125?

Weekly Update: 5-2-13

on May 2, 2013

Happy May! Looking forward to spring weather as we approach the end of the year. Despite the snow, we have been talking about spring. To supplement what grades K-2 have been learning in science, we have been talking about flowers, making diagrams and labeling the parts (roots, stem, leaf, flower). This week we also practiced hiding quietly for a lock down drill. We will continue to practice this the next couple of days. Though we practice fire drills monthly as a school, we do not have as many opportunities to practice lock downs and severe weather, so we are spending more time as a class on these things. We reviewed shapes (circle, square, rectangle, trisngle) and colors (yellow, red, blue, green) of the week. Remember, each week we focus on a letter, shape, color, and rhyme. Feel free to touch base with me about what we’re on, and what we are working on with your child specifically, that way you can support the skills at home.

As the end of the year approaches (the last day of school is June 4th), lots of fun things will be coming up in our classroom and school. In the next few weeks I will try to keep you posted with details on things like Enrichment Day, field day, end of the year parties, the Recess Buddy party, and graduations.

Here are the most relevant upcoming events:

1. Mile Hi 5: This is a fun 5k/5 mile/5000 feet race benefiting Edison and other schools in Northwest Denver. The race is this Saturday, 5/4 at Sloan’s Lake Park. Several teachers and families from our school will be there, including me and Mr. Dani, and it would be great to have some support from Room 125! The money earned goes straight to Edison’s PTA. The PTA has done many great things for our classroom, including helping to fund our horseback riding trips. I hope to see you there!

2. Enrichment Day: Next Friday (5/10) is Edison’s Enrichment Day! We will be going on a Recess Buddy trip to Acres of Opportunity Ranch. Prepare your child for horseback riding as usual with appropriate clothes and a water bottle. Please also pack a sack lunch as we will be having a picnic lunch .

Remember to dress for horseback riding tomorrow!
