Today's Learning Phone Numbers lesson comes from a mom on Facebook, Kristie Molanick.
She says it's a good way for kids to see how the numbers actually look on the phone keypad, just in case they need to call for a parent or call 911 in the event of an emergency! I totally agree! There are many scenarios where knowing family phone numbers is extremely important. I ask our Eaton Rockets if they know their important phone numbers and their addresses as things come up during the school year. It's not just the Kindergarteners who don't know them, so please, take time to learn them now. Hopefully, you'll never need to call or give your address, but if you do, you'll be prepared!📚
Happy Earth Day!

Mother's Day 2020
Make Mother's Day 2020 special with an acrostic poem for your awesome mom! Acrostic poems are fun to write and can be serious or silly. To begin, choose a word or two that you will write your poem about. Next, think about words that describe or go with your topic word. Then decide how you want your poem to read. Your poem can use the letters in the topic word to begin each line, be in the middle of the poem, or the last letter of a line. All lines of the poem should relate to or describe the topic word. One word, a phrase, a sentence, or a message can be used to describe the topic word. Poems are written vertically down the page and they do not have to rhyme. Here are two examples:

Top school Makes me happy

Please send me a picture of you and your poem if you'd like to be featured on our school social media.
