The Chicks Are In! (Or should I say Out?)

The class left school on Tuesday with seven eggs in a classroom incubator and came in on Thursday to find that all seven of our chicks hatched while we were home with a snow day on Wednesday!  Ask your child how (s)he can tell if a chick is a boy or a girl.  We are journaling the changes in the chicks over the next week before they go back to the Science Center.  Exciting times in Room 111.

Valentine's Day
Since we are going on a field trip on Monday, February 14th, we will be celebrating Valentine's Day with a small celebration and valentine exchange on Friday, February 11th.  I will be sending a list of the names of all the boys and girls and their teachers if your child needs them for writing valentines.

WeeDeliever Is In Full Swing
Wee Deliver is still in full swing if you want to write a letter to your daughter or son.  The address for our class is 111 Rock Party Drive.  They can be mailed through the large red and blue mailbox in the front lobby.

Snow Pants and Boots
I know that the inclement weather has kept us in for recess lately, but we are going to be going out into the snow whenever we are able so please continue to send your child in with boots and snow pants every day.

Happy Chinese New Year
Special Thanks to Christina Chang (Malachi's mom) for volunteering her time to come into the class to teach them about Chinese New Year.  We all had a great time listening to a special story, making a paper dragon and leaving with lucky money and special treat!  Above is a photo of the dragon the class made together under Ms. Chang's direction.

"Secrets of the Sky" Field Trip 
On Monday, February 14th
We are all set for a field trip to see "The Secret's of the Sky" on February 14th.  Thanks to all of you who volunteered to chaperone.  If you did not get chosen for this field trip due to the overwhelming response of volunteers, please be assured that you will be able to chaperone future field trips.  Thanks to all who have submitted their permission slip and payment.  Please be sure to pack a brown paper bag lunch with a drink in a non-breakable container for your child on the day of the trip.  Busses will leave promptly at 8:30 am.  Chaperones should be at the classroom by 8:15 am.  Thank you.
