This week the students learned all about money-coins. We talked about the difference between quarters, dimes, nickles, and pennies. We learned their amounts and who is on the face of each coin. We sorted coins and measured with quarters. We experimented with how to clean pennies with vinegar, as well. Next week will be a very busy week for our school and our class. We will have Book Fair that will be in the front by the office all week. Then on Monday with Muffins for Mom (7:00am), Tuesday will spring pictures with Life Touch, Wednesday there is Donuts for Dads, Thursday is Goodies for Grandparents and the Hot Dog Dinner, then on Saturday there is a Yard Sale at the school from 8am - noon. Also, next week we will focus on rhyming words and Dr. Seuss' Birthday (we will have green eggs and ham on Thursday).

Our class had a great time this week sharing their Valentine cards and treats with their classmates. Thank you to everyone who donated items for the card exchange and the snack. Also, this week we worked with graphing and balancing different items. Today we were visited by some of the dental staff from Fort Stewart and the students some facts about how to take care of their teeth. Please do not forget that there will be no school this Friday, February 17th or on Monday, February 20th, due to President's Day. Thank you again for all the wonderful Valentine treats that you sent in for the class and for Ms. Gibbs and myself.

The students have really had a busy week this week. We made it through our first severe weather drill, took class pictures, and began learning about friendship/Valentines. All the students have really enjoyed showing off their Valentine card boxes and they are very excited for the card exchange next week on February 14th. A big thank you to everyone for donating for the snack after the card exchange, I know that the students will really enjoy it. Please remember that we have 22 students in our class and that we are asking that you only fill out the "from" section of the cards for the exchange. Please enjoy the photos below:
