WE ARE A TEAM!

  

Every Tuesday from 2:45-3:20pm, we have Parent Engagement in our classrooms.  If you wish to discuss any issues involving your child, you are welcomed to make an appointment to talk to your child's teacher.  Please try to make an appointment in advance rather than showing up due to the possibility of other meetings.

Also, a progress report will be distributed in the end of January.  Furthermore, we will have one final Parent-Teacher Conference in mid-March.    Either way, you are encouraged to discuss your child's progress whenever possible.  Remember, that parents and teachers are a team working together towards a bright future for all children.  Therefore, constant communication is essential to guide and nurture this relationship.

DAILY SNACK

  

Our class has a daily mid-morning snack usually around 10:00-10:30am.  This snack break will only last 10 minutes, so your child's snack must be a quick item.  I have listed some suggestions below.  Please try to make the snack as healthy as possible. 

 

CHEESE STICKS           

FRUIT              

VEGETABLES             

CRACKERS             

YOGURT              

GRANOLA BARS              

TRAIL MIX              

PRETZELS             

 POPCORN           

 WATER              

100% JUICE             

APPLE SAUCE    

          

If you wish to contribute a class snack in bunk, that gesture would be very thoughtful of you.   I am sure that some students might forget or be unable to bring a snack, so these bunked items could be used for any kids missing a snack.  I would greatly appreciate it!

FIELD TRIPS: EXCITING ADVENTURES

  

Class trips are a vital way to increase and improve a child's learning.  Therefore, we have the following important dates to look forward to:

March 12th:  American Museum of Natural History

March 18th:  Fire Zone

April 11th:  Bronx Zoo

May 8th: New York Historical Society

 

READING UNIT: STUDYING CHARACTERS

  A character's feelings are emotions that he or she feels at the moment.  These feelings tend to change throughout the story.

 

  A character's traits are descriptions of his or her personality.  These traits demonstrate who these characters are as people.  Traits tend not to change throughout the story.
