We are off to a great start! September 15, 2014

Field Trip!

Our field trip will be on September 22nd! If you have not sent in your permission slip and $7.00 please send it in ASAP. I need to know by Wednesday!


Parents are welcome to join us. Our tour begins at 11:00 and ends at 12:30 and the cost is $3.00 for the tour and $3.00 additional dollars if you want to pick apples. You will have to provide your own transportation due to space on the bus. You are welcome to meet us over there, or you can follow the buses.


I am very excited about this day! I think we are going to have a great day!


We will be taking a snack with us on the field trip too, so I would greatly appreciate a few volunteers to sign-up to provide drinks and snacks. I think it would be great if we could SYNERGIZE and get at least 4 volunteers to spread the need. Thank you in advance. Please just send me a note, email, or phone call that you would like to help.

We discussed verbs this past week and now I am going to introduce adjectives.

Math: Coin Assessment

At the beginning of this year the majority of the class couldn't identify a quarter from a nickel, or a dime from a penny. They didn't know their value and they didn't grasp how 5 pennies could be traded for 1 nickel. As a class we worked together and with the help of Mrs. Hyatt we can now say we DOMINATE with coins! Check out these students that answered all 10 questions correctly! I even through in some deeper thinking questions! Superstars! Also, there were many students that only missed one or two questions. This class works very hard!!
