Rock Researching

The students are learning that rock is an earth material and a natural resource. In the pictures the students are investigating the properties of a river rock mixture. They are using screens to sort the mixture into pebbles, gravel, and sand. They will learn later that the smallest particle is silt which can be used to make clay.

Our winter party was so much fun! The students enjoyed the Polar Express morning. They arrived in pajamas and boarded the classroom train for a morning of reading, math, and writing all about The Polar Express. In the afternoon the students enjoyed hot cocoa, the snowball game, snowball fight, crafts, and the snowman dress up contest. It was a wonderful celebration.

Ready, Set, Action!

We love to act in our classroom. Each week a new group is learning a play and practicing to use their most expressive voices. It is performed for the rest of the class to enjoy.

Working and Decorating

We are getting ready for the holiday season by decorating. The students wrote a book report where each part was a piece for a garland strand. The students hung the book report garland around the room and made our room look very festive.
