We started learning about our solar system, our place in space, the planets of the solar system. Next week we will learn about how the earth rotates around its axis while it revolves around the sun, what causes night and day and why there are different phases of the moon.
We will also start with a positive discipline unit in our classroom. A key part of expressing feelings is being able to name them. We will brainstorm how we can feel to increase our emotional vocabulary and then create a emotional map.Emotional awareness is one of the most critical skills in growing up, when we understand our own emotions, we can actively decide what to do with them. Sometimes students have a hard time figuring out what it is they are feeling, then they will have a hard time expressing their emotions which can easily cause frustration.
Our next excursion will be to the Planetarium on Monday, February 11th, the first day we get back from winter vacation. For this excursion I will book a school bus, as by BVG it would take too long to get back in time. It would be great if one parent could come along to chaperone the group of kids. Please let me know via email if you are interested in joining us.
We will celebrate Fasching on March 5th this year without a theme. Students are welcome to dress up, we will play some games but will have normal school lessons as well.
Planetarium in February, I will need one chaperone to come along!
Excursion to the Allied Museum, tba: With the motto of 'When Chocolate Rained Down from the Skies', we want to take a journey back in time to the Berlin Airlift. Highlights of the tour are the story of the “chocolate pilot” Gail S. Halvorsen and an inside tour of a British Hastings TG 503 airplane used in the Airlift. Students will craft their own “chocolate parachutes” and have them dropped from the Airlift plane.
Excursion to the Freilandlabor on the topic of bees, tba
