School Supply Kits

NEW! Crozet Elementary has its very own online store where you can purchase a customized school supply kit with everything your child will need next year! This is not only the most convenient way to buy school supplies, but is also a fundraiser that will help the PTO purchase kits for children who need them. Just go to the link below and select the kit for your upcoming child's grade. All kits will be delivered directly to your child's classroom! Deadline is June 30th.

Monday

We were excited to see that our caterpillars have formed their chrysalis! We have moved them into an aquarium and are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our painted lady butterflies. The students did well understanding the life cycle of a butterfly and will apply what they have learned about life cycles to plants and frogs.

Tuesday

We had a wonderful time today on our field trip. The play at the Paramount was very entertaining. The children were excited to see Eric Carle stories come to life! We then walk down the mall to the Pavilion where we had a nice picnic lunch.

Wednesday

The children have mastered telling time to the hour and are now learning to tell time to the half hour. We are also making connections between time and events that happened during our day (lunch and dismissal times) and at home (wake up and bedtimes).

Thursday

Today we saw a performance of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone put on by our drama club and chorus. The actors did a great job and the students enjoyed the show. Also today, the children planted grass seed. We are learning what seeds need in order to grow. We will watch our seeds over the next two weeks and observe how they grow and change.

Friday

Our class has really enjoyed reading books written and illustrated by Mo Willems. Some of our favorite characters are Piggy, Gerald and the Pigeon. Today the students listened to a Pigeon story and then drew their own pigeon character with their buddy reader. We really enjoy spending time with our 5th grade buddies!
