Digital Learning Day!

This is the day we spent using technology as much as possible- for math, reading, writing, and science! We shared the day with our Book Buddies as well.

Jump Rope For Heart!

Our PE teachers led a very successful call for help with heart disease! Thank you all for your contributions! The children had a blast at the PE celebration! They found different ways to jump rope and had great fun exercising! Get up and get moving! These kids loved it!

4th Grade Weather Stations!

Our class was invited to be the audience for the 4th grade presentations of their study on weather! They did a fantastic job presenting! They had lots of hands on learning and interactive games for the 1st graders!! Fun, fun, fun!!

And the Survey says...

The children continue to enjoy creating survey questions and polling their friends. We also began putting their data into graphs!

Counting By 2s!

This is the fun way to practice counting by 2s. Make it into a picture!!

Fun Friday Reading

We work hard all week!!! The kids love their Friday reading groups. We take each book we read during the week and read them to our friends! Reading and rereading familiar text helps with fluency and comprehension! It doesn't even feel like work!
