Lots of Learning

Hello Families!  I hope you are enjoying your 3 day weekend.
Lets start with a few important reminders and announcements!

Open House:  I hope to see you at Open House Thursday evening.  We will all be meeting in the cafeteria at 6:00.

Remind 101:  I only had 4 families sign up for Remind 101.  I encourage you to sign up to receive important information from our class.  I promise I will keep the texts to a minimum!  I will have our code available at Open House if you would like to sign up.

Blog:  I am LOVING the recent interaction on this blog!  Thank you for participating in the questions.  Families can also leave comments in the Comment section at the very bottom of each blog post.  

Homework & Planners:  Thank you for continuing to sign your child's planners nightly.  It is a great place for parent & teacher notes!  I check them everyday.  Our homework is to read each night.  Other activities in addition to the reading will be coming home throughout the school year.  At this time, I will NOT be sending home work packets or spelling lists as part of your child's homework.  

We have been busy in 1 & busy that I didn't get to take many pictures this week.  I promise I will have more to share with you next week!

We worked on building our stamina at Read To Someone this week.  This week we will begin our Daily 5 3 rotations!

In Science, we learned about inquiry skills and the scientific process!  Here is your chance to SHOW WHAT YOU KNOW!!!

Bonus:  Students- teach to your parents WHY that happened. Parents- comment BELOW in the comment section what your child taught you.

Enjoy your weekend!
Ms. Gilbert


  1. The marshmallow is made of sugar. When sugar is heated, it expands.

  2. It was soft and the bubbles moved faster and faster and made the marshmallow bigger.

  3. McKenzie taught me that marshmallows are made of sugar and water. The microwave heated the little bubbles and they moved fast making it expand.
