Black History Month: Each student was assigned a person we will be doing in class, what is not done through the day will be homework. (Paper Bag Assignment) All students need a picture of their person printed by 2/19 no bigger than 4X6.
Read Across America: We are celebrating Read Across America. Instead of just focusing on Dr. Seuss we are going to focus on all the cultures and incorporate them to enhance literacy amongst everyone. All parents are invited to come do a read aloud of a book that depicts a culture, it doesn’t have to be your own. The story can’t take longer than 20 minutes and along with the story you can incorporate clothing, artifacts, music, pictures, slide show and air play it on our smart TV, food item, I can take up to two parents per day from 1:00-1:30 pm during AR time and Wednesdays are excluded due to early dismissal ( Feb 12- March 6). If you cannot come in fill free to do a read aloud and record yourself with your child’s iPad and your child can air play it and present the props. If there is a language barrier or you have a story from your country don’t hesitate to read it in your language and your son/daughter can explain it to the class. Please participate by doing a read aloud and help us celebrate Read Across America Day. Please email me directly to confirm a date. Remember teaching and engaging them in other cultures enhances reading and teaches students to be more open minded and accepting of others and increases mutual respect.
On Tuesday students will take home a colored piece of paper, with a caption, “My name is.______________” They will fill in the blank and there will be lines provided to write about the significance of their name. They can write about the meaning, history, or reasons why they were given their title. Name should include first name, middle name if given one, last name and maternal is optional. Around the caption they must make a collage of pictures (pictures can be photos, drawings, magazine cut outs, and print outs of things that represent their culture).
