Read Across America Day
Grab your hat and read with the cat! The Plovers will celebrate the National Education Association's annual Read Across America Day on Monday, March 4th. The Plovers will honor Dr. Seuss's birthday with a day of reading! We will also have special guest readers, read alouds, opportunities to read with a buddy and read-to-self time. Students are allowed to bring a stuffed animal to read with, but they should not bring blankets or sleeping bags.
Thank you to all the families and Plover friends who supported the class business at Celebrations of Learning last week! We really appreciate your generosity and patience while waiting in line! The students completed a reflection today and wrote the following note of appreciation:
Dear Customers and Donors,
Thank you for coming to our mini golf course and supporting our class business. We were excited to show you what we’ve been working on in class for the past months. This year, we have been learning about garbage and natural resources. We found out about some problems, like people using too many non-renewable resources, like oil. In our school, we saw that a lot of wrappers get thrown away every day and sometimes food gets put in the garbage instead of the compost. We hope we can use the profits from our business to fix these problems and help our school be more sustainable.
We made our golf course from recycled materials because we wanted to find a creative way to reuse trash from our homes. We think it is important to show that there are fun projects that you can do with things people might normally throw away. We want to help people pay attention to what is in their garbage and find fun ways to reuse as much as they can. You can also help by buying things from reuse stores like Goodwill or buying a compost bin for your house.
