Coming to a School Near You in January

Oh My! We have a ton of fun planned for January! As a school, we’re offering an event for kids on Thursday afternoons (drumrolls please!)….Kadlec Academy @ Sunset View Gym
Students in grades 1-5, may join this fun after school club to learn how their bodies work.  There is no cost and each class includes fun exercises, hands-on activities and a healthy snack. For more information call (509) 438-4969. Register online by clicking the Sunset View link at   http://www.kadlec.org/krmc/our_care/kadlec_academy. Experts from Kadlec will be teaching these interesting classes and I’m thinking of sneaking in, just to see the fun for myself.

January 9 – Brain
January 16 – Heart
January 23 – Lungs
January 30 – Bones

In our own classroom, we’ll start several new concepts:

In math, we’ll study time and learn to tell it on an analog clock to the hour and half-hour. In reading, we’ll start looking maps, directions, and geography, which is an excellent foundation for our upcoming penguin study (science/social studies).  But, before we get to the blinding excitement that is PENGUINS, we are going to explore some physics with a science study called Push-Pull-Go. We’ll build ramps, swings and more with K’Nex and learn how the world works. Exciting stuff, my friends, exciting stuff. I can’t wait to get started.
