Gila Monsters- January Update

Dear Parents of the Gila Monsters' classroom,

I hope you had a good start into the New Year. Everyone is back to work and we have been very busy these last couple of weeks.

Right after the winter break the children started rehearsing for the play that they will present to you on January 29, 2019 at 6 pm. At the end of this week you will get an invitation to sign up for food for our pizza potluck that we usually will have right after the performance. The children are already excited about this event and rehearsing every day. They are looking forward to the day of the play.

Over the past days they got lessons on: the classification of leaves according to the veins, the reflexive quality of the verb, the classification of nouns, squaring a binomial with the Golden Bead material, bisecting angles, parts of a woody stem, main rivers on our continent, parts of a seed, finding the three digit cube root of a number, interpretation of a box graph, and several more. The children also have started to practice writing an essay about a topic using the information of two passages that they read first.

Some children are organizing a bake sale that will take place on February 1, 2019. They are at the moment planning what to make and when they will do the baking for it.

We had a few presentations by the children: One was on Beyonce, one on Stan Lee, and the other one on Snow Leopards.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Have a great day,

 

Mr. Stefan
