Slice of Agriculture Field Trip

On our field trip, we learned about how farmers milk cows. We learned about what kinds of meat people eat. We also learned about tractors and the sizes of some tractors and how much they cost. We got to go inside of one and it was really cool. We learned about pigs and how they raise pigs to get plump and then kill them for food. We learned about seeds and what year you should plant them, and what foods they can be in like tomatoes you have spaghetti sauce out of tomatoes. We learned about grains like wheat and corn and that while we're having fun in the summer farmers are picking their crops. We also saw Maya, the cow. By: Amara and Maya

Class Read Aloud: Paddle to the Sea

The students in Ms. Feighny class have been reading a book together called Paddle to the Sea. We have written notes about the book and writing about what has happened. We’ve written our own journal based on the book, we will be showing our journals at parent teacher conferences. We are also writing our own endings of the book to search our talents. We heard about the towns around the Great Lakes. We have drawn the path of where Paddle has went on a map and created our own cover for the book.

Valentine's Day Party

We had dark chocolate cupcakes that were healthy for you, cuties, and strawberries. We played bingo but since it was a Valentine’s Day party we called it “Heart Bingo!” We also made picture frames with ourselves in it and we decorated them. We got many different things like bracelets, pudding, and a LOT of candy. We did special Valentine’s Day activities like we learned about the history of Valentine’s Day and St. Valentine. Ms. Feighny’s fiancée and dad also came to visit our classroom that day. Thank you to all the parents who helped with the party-we felt so special and loved!
