…a look back at February:
As part of our study on nutrition, we went on a field trip to our local Giant Food Store! "Tr. Mary" gave us an informative tour and offered us different foods to sample from each department. Students were especially excited to visit the seafood department and meet the lobsters! We also celebrated the 100th day of school this month by creating “100 Days of School” posters. We practiced skip counting to 100 by 5’s, 10’s, and 20’s! (see pictures)
We will be working on identifying number patterns & comparing and ordering numbers to 100.
Throughout the year, students have been reading weekly poems from several wonderful authors. Now, we are going to start working on writing some of our own poetry! Students have also been hard at work writing recipes for our class cook book. Look for the final copy to come home soon! In addition, we have been working on recognizing words that have blends (ie: /st/ as in the word “stop”) and digraph blends (ie: /nch/ as in the word “crunch”). We are also studying word families and are applying these skills to our reading and writing.
We will be learning about different types of landforms and waterways.
Students will define what a community is and will explore the characteristics of their own community. Students will also begin to develop an understanding of maps and how to use them.

Small class size allows Goshen Friends School teachers to get to know each student well. Teachers work in tandem with parents so that no child ever slips through the cracks.
