Camping Out

We had a lot of fun on our Comfy Wednesday camping out in our classroom! Check out what we did!

We wrote in our tents by lantern light! We played math games and fished for review math problems in Lake Champlain. We read by flashlight and had story around the campfire with campfire treats!

Our First Mystery Skype!


Our first Mystery Skype!  We had such a great time trying to figure out where our new friends were! We asked many great questions and our map followers did such a fantastic job following along that we soon learned that our friends were actually in Colchester, Vermont as well!  Thank you to Mrs. Davis's Grade 2 classroom at Union Memorial School.  They also asked us great questions to figure out where we were located! They helped us  practice our skills so when we begin to Skype with other children across the country, our skills will be sharp!

A Few Dates and Reminders

Just an update on a few things!

Early Dismissal Tomorrow! 9/27 Our students will be dismissed at 12:45!

Open House: Thursday, 9/28 6:30-7:45

Echo Field Trip: Please send in your Echo permission slips. We have had some parents ask about children that already have a pass to Echo and if they need to pay. Unfortunately, the answer is yes. The amount we asked for covers our bus fees as well as a workshop at Echo.

Homework: It is expected that your child is reading at home everyday for at least 20 minutes. They should also be practicing their math facts adding and subtracting to 20.  A few times a week we may send home the Homelinks from our math program. I have 3 goals when this comes home. 1. I want parents to see what we are working on. 2. Practice for your child. 3. Responsibility for your child to practice taking homework home and returning it to school.

We are all off to a great start this year! We are really in full swing of learning our new routines and expectations. We have some great writers in our classroom and our writing skills are really growing.

We are really enjoying working with our Kinder Buddies each Friday. We teach them reading and writing skills and how to follow directions to complete projects. We also teach each other problem solving and working together as a community.

Spring is for Sprouts

Hi all!

In celebration of Earth Day tomorrow, April 22, we grew a tree in hallway. On the leaves we wrote what we can do to help our environment. Students worked with their Kindergarten buddies to come up with ideas like picking up litter, recycling, and saving water by turning off the faucet when they brush their teeth. We encourage our students to try and stick to these promises over their break!

We also have some growth in our classroom! A few weeks ago, we started planting zinnias, marigolds, and cherry tomato plants to see how plants grow. Now, those plants have sprouted and are well on their way to becoming mature plants!

We hope that you all have a lovely break and we look forward to seeing our students back to school on Monday, May 1st!
