    As we enter into March in the Busy Bees room, we are diving into Fairy Tales. We will be reading about The Three bears, Jack and the Beanstalk, and the Three Little Pigs. Our PLTW science curriculum will guide us through discussions of the Structure and Function of objects and allow students the opportunity for STEM challenges. In social studies we will continue discussions about geography by looking at human characteristics, human-environmental interactions, and movement. In math we are finishing our unit on subtracting within 5 and moving on to making and finding missing parts of 10.

    bee my valentine?

    It is the month of Groundhog, the 100th day, Love, and Presidents Day. We will be very busy in our classroom celebrating and learning this month! Remember there is no school for students Feb. 13 or 20th.  We are starting addition this month as soon as we wrap up our shapes unit. We are also learning a lot about the weather. Our Character Strong trait for the month is Honesty so we will be talking about how important it is to be honest with one another at school and at home.  Thank you to all of the amazing volunteers who have been helping out in our classroom. I appreciate it so much and students love having extra loving adults to share their learning experience with daily.
