Visiting the Transit Museum

Thank you to all the families that came to Parent Teacher Conferences. It's so important to have these conversations and it was wonderful to meet families I haven't met previously!

Last Friday, we went to the New York Transit Museum. It's a super fun museum full of history! It's also one of the museums you can visit with your cool culture pass. Located in Brooklyn and in an old subway station, the museum is full of transit memorabilia and train cars from the past.

Each child got to go on the bus and "drive" it!

We also got to create our own buses!
After creating the buses, we got to walk around the museum for a bit. We saw subways from the past and even got to sit in several of them!

Thank you to all the parents that came with us to the transit museum!
This week, we started our new reading and writing units. We will be reading and writing pattern books. This is when students will begin to read words in their books and begin to write sentences in their writing.
