Weekly Update 4/22 – 4/26

As you know, students took the ELA PSSAs this week. We are so proud of how hard the students worked each day! Their effort is truly commendable. Thank you for taking the time to write notes for your children. They were so encouraged, and their faces lit up each morning reading them. Many students kept all of their notes on their desk the whole week!

Next week the students will be taking the Math PSSA’s on Wednesday and Thursday. Just like this week, please be sure your child gets a good night of sleep and eats a healthy breakfast in the morning. Also, please do your best to make sure your child is in school and on time those days. If students are late, they are not able to join the rest of the class once testing begins.

Just a few other PSSA reminders: Students should bring a water bottle to school that they can refill. They should also leave any phones, Fitbits, smart watches, or other electronics at home on testing days. We could still use some donations of sugarless gum of any flavor or mints. Your support is greatly appreciated!

Dear Families,

          Thank you once again for the wonderful donations for our bunny baskets. They were a huge success and the class had so much fun! The baskets may be coming home fairly empty today but they were loaded with so many wonderful surprises from our generous families!

          Field trip papers may be returned anytime next week. We are looking forward to our Science Factory and Musser Park trip on May 21st. We will contact you in the near future if you have been randomly chosen as a chaperone.

We will also be writing thank you cards to the PTO for paying for the trip.

          Have a wonderful Easter and thanks for all you do each day!

We had a hard-working, successful, optimistic week of PSSA testing for ELA. On Thursday, the students in fourth grade were treated to a movie “Whispers.” We also read Rechenka’s Eggs by Patricia Polacco and saw the process to making pysanky. Ask your child what happened during the All School Assembly today!

Thank you, parents, for the encouragement you gave to your child this week. Several other teachers commented to me on how hard the individual students worked, especially on the TDA portions of their tests.

Also a big thank you to the families who donated some snacks. It was a nice treat to offer the students after the test was finished for the morning.

Next week:
Monday – no school
Tuesday – Regular day of school! Music
Wednesday – PSSA Math, wear sweats, Library Instruction/Book Exchange!
Thursday – PSSA Math, wear bright neon colors, Art
Friday – Fine Arts Day (the best day of the year at Hambright!), no “Phys. Ed.”

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter/Passover/Spring Break with your families!

Some fun this week..

Students had a special stuffed animal visit the classroom yesterday. We took a class picture with him.

Today the students worked in teams to solve riddles like detectives. They had to read the clues and work together to solve each riddle, while practicing our focus skill of “drawing conclusions” from this week. Then the students even made their own riddle for a friend to solve in the classroom to create a “conclusion detective” project that we hung in the hallway. Way to go first grade detectives!

Week of the Young Child 2019

During the Week of the Young Child, we recognized the young learner in all of the students by doing short, focused activities each day.  A summary of the week is below.

On Music Monday, the students participated in some musical movement activities.  They danced to Kids Bop songs, particpated in GoNoodle activities, and even had some special requests for songs to listen to at dismissal time.

For Tasty Tuesday, we discussed healthy food choices and tasted a variety of foods.  The kids tried gluten-free garlic and herb sprouted seed crackers, dark chocolate pretzel crisps, and regular pretzels. All of the kids were encouraged to take a courtesy bite (as we call it at my house) and most tried everything!  We talked about how it’s okay if they didn’t like it but they should at least give it a try.  Most of the kids found that they liked something that they thought they wouldn’t enjoy!

On Work Together Wednesday, the kids were given various tools to build something.  They had to pick a partner, develop a plan of what they wanted to build and then work together to build it.  They had so much fun being creative!  The kids were so happy and their smiles were priceless. We will definitely find time for Work Together Wednesday another day in the future.

For Artsy Thursday, each student decorated one white bag any way they wished.  The bags were then connected together to create class flowers.

It’s always so fun to take the time to celebrate being a young learner!

Today was a great first day of PSSA. These fourth graders in 4-Sz were focused, confident, and proud. You should be! They were well-rested and enjoyed their PJ’s and some Peeps!

Get another great dinner tonight, some solid sleep, and another healthy breakfast tomorrow! Remember to wear RED, since you are RE(a)Dy for the test!
