Beautiful Class Art

Today the kids made a beautiful class art project with a little help from their grown ups. At Get the Scoop Night, parents wrote things they liked about their child on a star. If parents were not able to attend, I wrote things I liked about the child. We read the stars aloud and celebrated all the wonderful qualities of the people in our class. The kids then stung beads on the wires attached to the stars.

We turned this bare branch into this beautiful display.

Wednesday is Library Day

Wednesday is our lucky day because it is Library day! Each Wednesday we will visit the library for a story and time to check out a book. The book should be returned to school the following Wednesday.

Today the kids were SO excited to check our books! Made my heart glad to see their enthusiasm!Mrs. Fitch taught us all about how to take care of books and how to find a book in the library .

Our First Monday Meeting

Today we had our first Monday meeting in the gym. Each morning, the whole school gathers in the gym to build our school community and celebrate the many successes of our students. We discuss the news around the school and share projects students are working on. We say our school pledge, the Pledge of Allegiance, and sing our school song. We celebrate the cleanest classrooms, amazing lunch and recess behavior, as well as grade levels and classes with the best attendance. I love this positive and encouraging start to the week!

Our Library Visit

Today we got to know the library and our wonderful Librarian/ Library Media Specialist, Mrs Fitch. It was so fun! Mrs. Fitch read a dinosaur story and taught us songs about dinosaurs as well. We also got a chance to read some library books! We had a great time and are excited to return to the library for book check out when kindergarten starts!

B is for Butterfly

Today we learned about the letter b and also made a butterfly craft. These activities help the children become more familiar with each letter’s name and sound as well as provide opportunities to develop fine motor skills. Our crafts also help the children learn focus skills and build stamina to complete a task. Here are the kids working on their butterflies!

2nd to Last day!

We had a busy 2nd to last day. We cleaned out our book boxes and seat sacks. We also did some fun crafts based on one of our favorite book characters this year, Pigeon!

We also released the butterflies who had emerged from their chrysalis over the weekend.
