This week, we learned all about Groundhog's Day as well as the seasons of Winter and Spring. We learned that groundhogs are rodents that hibernate in the winter. We also learned that on Groundhog's Day, a special groundhog will come out of his hole. If it is a cloudy day, there will be no shadow and Spring weather will be on it's way! However, if it is a sunny day, the groundhog will see it's shadow, get scared, and run back into it's hole. Then there will be 6 more weeks of winter. We made a prediction graph of what we think will happen and it ended in a tie!
On another note, I wanted to let you all know how incredibly proud I was of our students with how they handled the power outage yesterday. We had to do a lot of things differently and they all did a great job of paying attention to and following all of the directions that were out of the ordinary. They were also all very, very patient while waiting for our buses which took MUCH longer than any of us had anticipated. Great job, 4K!
Our literacy goal this week was to sort and write letters S, G, and C.
Our math goal was to match shapes.
