I hope you all enjoyed your last weekend.

We would like to invite our lovely daddies to a Father´s Day breakfast on Friday, March 16th. Before having breakfast, the children will perform a Mexican song. Children should come dressed with black pants (boys) or black skirts (girls), a formal white shirt and a Mexican hat. We hope to see all our Daddies attend!

Believe it or not, Easter is just right around the corner. We are requesting Lps. 300 to be sent to school by Monday, March 12th. This money will be used as follows:

Lps. 150 Father´s Day Gift

Last week the children took home an empty booklet. On this booklet they will have the chance to become authors and illustrators. They will create their own main character and write a 10 page story that goes along with their characters. Each page should have only one to two sentences. These sentences need to have rhyming words. For example,
Page 1: The pig is wearing a wig. The big wig is pink. Page 2: The pig meets the dragon that is pulling a wagon
These books should be turned in back to school on Friday, April 6th. The children will be reading their books to each other and also to other students from other grades. Be creative and remember that imagination can take you everywhere!

In Math we are going to continue learning about comparing numbers. Last week we reviewed the signs of less than, greater than, and equal to.
