Gingerbread Houses!

Please remember to send in your assigned supplies for the gingerbread houses! We have a small pile of goodies...but are in desperate need of more graham crackers, white icing, and candy! If you've already sent in your items...feel free to send in more! Thank you so much:)

Science in MOTION...

Twirly Birds

Science Notebooks
 "New Question: Why do you have to fold the sides?"



We are having a ball with the motion unit in science! Take a look at our zoomers in motion and our science notebooks...

Star Students!

These students are mastering sight words! Keep up the great work!

Grandparents make everything better...

Before we left for the Thanksgiving holiday, we invited our grandparents in for a Grandparents Breakfast. I love grandparents! They were so sweet, supportive, and social. The students shared their grandparents with the whole class as we read our poems, Mayflower books, and thankful lists. Thank you to all the grandparents who were able to come and make our day so special!

Long time No see

Hi Friends! I'm sorry I haven't added a new post lately. We've been working really hard and having a lot of fun. I couldn't wait to transfer my new pics from my phone to my computer and create a new post. Well... that didn't happen. There was some problem in technology land and all of my *new* pictures (including field day) are GONE! Lost in space...forever! I am super bummed tonight...and fighting off tears. It's almost Thanksgiving...I have a lot to be thankful for...right???! Right. I'm going to try to learn a lesson from this and email my pictures or transfer my pictures right away so I don't lose any more memories. I'm so so sorry.

I was able to save a few new ones...

Welcome November!

Continuing to explore balanced systems...

Adding weight to the bottom DOES help keep the paper arm and pencil stable!

Finding the missing partners...

Enjoying indoor recess...

A Happy Meal Party!!!

(Thanks again, Jose L.'s Mom & Dad!)

The Pencil Challenge:
Can you balance a pencil on it's point using wire and clothespins???

Wow! I'm pleasantly surprised every day!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving.
I am so thankful for such a loving, caring, bright, and determined class!
