This week, we will be busy making holiday gifts for our families! We hope you enjoy all of them and know they were made with love.


This week we will be reading stories, having discussions and participating in activities about different winter holidays. The children will learn more about Hanukkah, Kwanza, Las Posadas and Christmas. We will learn about similarities and differences between these holidays, and why they all involve lights of some kind. Check out the link below to learn more!


The children have been having a wonderful time using a new item in our classroom. They are called Keva planks. They have been creating wonderful structures by themselves and with friends. They are becoming amazing engineers, and it is awesome to see their creativity and problem solving at work. Thank you to Ms. Crummie for providing each classroom in the school with a set of these!


We were treated to a holiday performance today by the 4th and 5th graders. They sung songs, danced and played instruments. At the end we all joined in a holiday sing-a-long! We had a great time watching our buddy readers perform!


We had a fantastic polar express day! The children had a fun time listening to the story, watching the movie and having a snack while wearing their pajamas! Also we were treated to an exhibit by the 4th grade students called Canoeing Across Virginia. They taught the students about the Native Peoples of Virginia in a museum style with exhibits, displays, and presentations. We learned a lot and had a fun time!
