Happy Staff Appreciation Week
Congratulations to Addisyn Tripp and Rosy Landrum. They are this year’s winners of the Voice to Voice poetry recitation competition.
The 8th graders are selling flowers to raise money for some springtime fun, a class gift, and their graduation celebration. Orders can be placed online until May 15 at http://brooklinschool.
Pre-K and K students have endured the April showers and are looking forward to May flowers! Before April break we got out and sketched the daffodils, and upon return to campus students eagerly noticed the blooms and some flowers. Students celebrated the buds on the trees on our campus, and we are looking forward to seeing blooms and fruits! Kindergarten students are working to master Fry’s first 100 sight words by playing sight word memory, go fish, and doing flashcard drills with each other; many Pre-K students have been challenging themselves to do these drills as well! In math, the kindergarten students worked on number bonds and simple addition sentences and used Zearn to help practice those skills. Kindergarten students also worked on addition and subtraction facts and began to learn how to “count the 10 way” up to 20. Pre-K students were introduced to number stories and worked on fluency to 20. Kindergarten and Pre-K students continue to enjoy exploring their math boxes and using the manipulatives to create their own math games.
ELA – 3/4 This past week we worked on editing sentences, reading a short “book” about the Mayflower and a short “book” that was a retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale of the “Wild Swans”. We also finished reading our book about the Iroquois and practiced some work on inference… After completing the final assessment for that unit, we will begin a unit on fairy tales around the world – specifically different versions of “Red Riding Hood”.
3/4 Super Studies
PK/K – This week in music classes we started working on a song called One Small Voice for our virtual spring concert. We will be making a recording in May to post for families to enjoy. We were happy to be able to spend a lot of our class time outside singing this week!
1/2 – This week we practiced our song One Small Voice for the virtual spring concert. We will be making our recording in May to post for families to enjoy. We were excited to be able to spend most of our class time outside this week!
3/4 – This week we learned how to play the G Chord on Ukulele! We also were able to play through our song Colors Over You without Mrs. Hicks calling out the chord changes! We are super excited about all the improvements we have been making in class. We are preparing to be able to take our Ukuleles home to practice. There will be a permission slip sent home for this shortly.
