Team Bannon Super Bowl Celebration — Are you rea!dy for some football? Flag football, that is. We seized the opportunity to celebrate the Patriots and the amazing Super Bowl. Super Bowl week began with our very own combine! We experienced a variety of agility and strength exercises which taxed our bodies and our minds. We discovered that we have our own agility training every day here at I-LES when we read, learn new math facts, exercise our cooperation skills, etc.
Third graders have been very busy this month and have had some very special opportunities. We hope you all had a chance to look at your child’s portfolio and can see the great growth they are making.
There have been some great guest teachers this month as well. Dr. DeTolla made a visit to talk about dental health.
Students in kindergarten through grade 4 have spent so much time and effort this year learning about, and working on, the Inter-Lakes personal competencies located on the front of our progress reports. During the month of January, a poster/writing contest opened up for all students. The task was to draw and explain what a student demonstrating the personal competencies would look like in our building. We received a ton of posters!
After learning about Phil, the Groundhog, and what makes a shadow, the preschoolers are now learning how to take care of all 20 of their teeth. Our activities include reading about our teeth in our Clifford News, illustrating pictures of what our teeth look like, “brushing” teeth with minty toothpaste paint, sorting foods that are good/not good for our teeth, counting crocodile teeth, and sorting words that begin with the letter Tt. Next, the students will create valentines and learn about different kinds of transportation.
The third grade recorders will arrive this week and we will begin the process of learning how to play them. We have been reading music, so we're ready to go. At the end of the year, the students will bring them home with a booklet of all the songs we have learned. The second grade students are beginning to work on the play, Bremen Town Musicians. We will be performing this for parents sometime in April.
