The students have become quite the researchers! Here are some shots of them in action.

Make sure you ask your child what animal they are researching and what they have found out about it!

Learning, by becoming experts! 

Yesterday we worked in groups to teach our classmates how we solve 2-step equations. Research shows that kids learn best when they teach each other. The kids did a great job and learned how hard it can be to play the role of a teacher! I think they are all ready for their quiz today after this great activity.

Catch up post!

Below, I am posting all the pictures I need to catch up on! I will put a description above each group of pictures to let you know what they are from. 

Halloween! The following pictures are some of the great ones I got from our Halloween Day here at school. The kids had a great time sharing scary stories, eating lots of wonderful treats, and dressing up in their costumes.

The next group of pictures is from STEM day. The kids had the chance to work with Lockheed Martin engineers and create machines, make paper airplanes, and do STEM related activities in our classroom. They loved working on the "lock boxes" that they had to use math to get inside. 

On the 15th, the kids FINALLY earned their class party that they have been working so hard towards! They got to play with the school set of robots. They learned how to move them around using an iPad. We are hoping that next time we get to use them, we can learn how to code the program to make them move how we want! It was such a great afternoon for the kids.

I just cannot get over how great all of your children are. We have so much fun in our classroom and it is because they are so well behaved and can handle learning through activities! I am really excited to see what the rest of the school year has in store!

Compost Lesson!

This morning the 6th grade students came into our class and taught us about composting!

We will begin composting during our lunches and the 6th grade students will be taking it outside into the containers! This is a great chance for the students to see the importance of keeping our earth clean! Ask your children what type of things can be composted and what type of things cannot. Here are some pictures from our morning.

The kids had a great week dressing up and I think it really helped make things more fun! Here are a few pictures from our week.

Sometimes, Friday afternoons call for some extra long quiet time!

The kids and I both love quiet time! It is a great time to relax after lunch and recess and work on our silent reading books. A little piano music and a whole lot of reading. We love it!

Our awesome day in P.E. today!

The kids got the chance to use medicine balls in P.E. today and practice yoga! What a great opportunity for them. They really enjoyed it!

The final butterfly (Pumpkin) was set free today! The kids are already asking what the next class pet is going to be. We had fun watching our butterflies grow, but I think for now we will be a pet free classroom.
