Book Tasting

Tuesday, February 21, 2017

We had a fantastic "Book Tasting" today! I promise I did not feed your children books, but we did have Hershey bars for math (that's another story). 😊 This afternoon our classroom became a restaurant and students were invited in to "sample" books. Once they sampled the selections they rated the books on a 1-4 scale (1=must have to a 4=do not want). From there I placed them in book groups. Based on their faces, they had a blast.  I owe a huge thank you, for the idea, to Musings from the Middle School, for this idea!!  

Valentine's Party 2017

Monday, February 13, 2017

There is nothing like an elementary Valentines Day party! We had a great time and even managed to attempt a mannequin challenge with Mrs. Cruz's class! Hard to stand still after eating all that delicious sugar!

100th Day of School

Friday, February 10, 2017

Wow! We have had an amazing 100th day. Students began the day with building towers with 100 index cards. The goal was to build a 2 foot, freestanding tower, that would hold a small stuffed animal for 5-10 seconds. It was a challenge that they persevered through.

We ended the day with counting 100 Skittles or M&M's (their choice) and then creating fractions and graphs for the colors. After that, we ate them all up! It's been a great day!
