We had a busy month between parent teacher conferences and our holiday break! We all worked very hard to write about our lives as a water drop going through the water cycle, and you will see those pieces published on the blog very soon. We practiced our reading strategies and skills by learning about how they celebrate Christmas in the tropical climate of Hawaii, and we started to learn about the physical regions of Pennsylvania.
Please be on the lookout for our field trip permission slip which will be coming home on January 6! We'll be traveling to the state capitol and museum in Harrisburg on January 24, and we are very excited for the trip.
Our last day before break was filled with fun, food, and teamwork! Everybody enjoyed the delicious food we had for breakfast (a special thanks to Miss Conrad and Ms. Miller for flipping ALL of those pancakes!) and to all of the families who donated supplies for the morning. Please check out the fun we had in our slideshow below! You'll see us enjoying breakfast, stuffing Santa's belly full of jelly (aka balloons), playing pictionary and bingo, having a snowball toss, and participating in a snowman building contest and a Hershey kiss relay. It was definitely a fun way to celebrate the end of 2013!
