Tomorrow will be our first day of cross-country skiing. Please send your child to school with snow pants, hats and mittens. We will ski on the playground for one hour.
The students have started their informational books. Students are the experts on their subject of choice. We are learning about different text structures within our books.
Students are researching different countries. They are learning how to take notes, find the main idea, and compare different subtopics in non-fiction books.

Homework - Last week, the students worked on a paper about antonyms and did two pages of cursive. This week, students will do an antonym crossword puzzle and two pages of cursive. Please encourage your child to complete the homework and read for at least 20 minutes every night.
BPMS is having a Gratitude Challenge for 30 days starting on January 22nd. Each student is receiving a gratitude journal. Students and staff will write one thing they are thankful for everyday. There will also be a "Wall of Gratitude" displayed in the hallway.
We will also be focusing on mindfulness. I will be showing this video to the students to explain mindfulness and then we will do short mindfulness activities.
Enjoy your week,
