A Message from Mrs. Wissemann

    January 2019

Happy Friday! The students have been very busy the past few weeks of the New Year!  Be sure to ask your child what projects, activities and themes they are focusing on this month.

I love greeting our Pre-K students as they wait in the lobby for their day to begin. We have begun a morning game of "I Spy"while we wait for our friends! I enjoy hearing there stories while they wait for their teachers to bring them to class.

Primary 1 is currently investigating Simple Machines. Students have completed learning activities that involve levers and pulleys. Students worked in small groups designing a pulley system that would help them lift a bucket filled with a variety of objects such as shells and Legos. Never giving up, students redesigned their pulley systems (as good scientists do!) to lift certain loads. Way to go Primary 1 scientists!

Primary 2 has been busy learning about Landforms. Students have completed an number of investigations and are incorporating art into their learning! Be on the lookout for their mural.

 Be sure to check out the bulletin board in the front lobby where Intermediate 1 teacher, Miss Simicich has displayed some examples of the work students have completed throughout their Food Chain/Owl Pellet investigation! If you take a walk in the woods, you may be able to find an owl pellet to dissect on your own to find out what they owl ate.

Intermediate 2 has begun a Microscope/Cells investigation. Students are learning the parts of a microscope, how to view a slide and create a slide for viewing.  I loved popping into their STEM class and viewing the head of a housefly under the microscope! So cool!

If playing Cornhole is your thing, pop into gym class with Coach K.! Students are learning the rules of the game and correct throwing form! It certainly looks easier than it is! Practice, practice, practice!

After school chorus with Mr. G. has begun. Students will help in the creation of the spring concert! I'm excited to see what songs they will sing.

The art room is a busy one throughout the day! Students are not only working on pieces during class time, but also during Art Portfolio time! So many beautiful works of art are displayed around our school! Make sure to take a look! 

Please come visit our school and classrooms! We would love to see you! Do you have a special talent that you would like to share? Let me know! We enjoy having visitors in the building! 

Have a wonderful snow-filled three day weekend! Just a reminder that school is closed on Monday, 1/21/19 in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.

As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns!  jwissemann@oysterponds.org
