Art Barn Field Trip - April 20, 2017
We had an amazing day of fun and learning experiences with our friends today. At the Art Barn, we learned about chickens and the variety of eggs they lay and got to hold and pet a chicken and rooster. We brushed a horse, donkey, sheep and goats. We saw pigs, chickens, roosters, geese and rabbits. We went on a tractor ride and learned about manure and composting. We made some art and enjoyed lunch. Thanks to Farmer Sue and all her friends for a wonderful time!
happy 100th day of school - january 20, 2017
WOW! 100 days of learning and your children have grown so much! We had an amazing day today. We made a 100th day hat, did a 100 Exercise challenge and made a 100th day snack. Your children looked amazing today and I am so amazed at how they get around being so old. Ms. Evelyn and Ms. Mildred had a great time with the kids today! We even had a 100 balloon pop. Thanks so much to all the parents who sent in donations, blew up balloons and helped dress up your children to make this day special. It is one they will never forget!

happy 80th day of school - December 6, 2016
Time is going SO fast this year! We celebrated the 80th day on Tuesday. We made a snowflake with 80 small snowflakes in it. We were able to stack cups on Wednesday because we ran out of time on Tuesday. We had 2 groups - boys versus girls. I told them they would earn teamwork points for how they worked together. It was so interesting to watch how they planned and how they built - very different methods.

happy 50th Day of school - October 17, 2016
The 50th day was fun and quick. We got to make hats with 5 leaves and used 10 frames to organize our groups of 10. We got to stack cups. The amount of cups is getting larger so our number of groups is getting smaller and number of students in each group is growing. Each team worked very hard to earn a teamwork point for working together and sharing as they built their towers!
Happy 40th day of School - October 3, 2016
For our 40th day we added 40 bugs to a spider's web in groups of 5. We then wrote and counted by 5's. Students got to make towers with 40 cups! They love to build and create.
happy 30th day of school - September 12, 2016
The 30th day was another great day to celebrate! We got to count 30 fruit loops and then make groups of 5. We used two colors in our groups of 5 to show different ways to compose 5(4 and 1, 2 and 3, 0 and 5). Then, we stacked our cups in towers of 30. Students made basic towers first and then with extra time, were allowed to get more creative.
Happy 20th Day of School - August 26, 2016
The students were SO excited to celebrate the 20th day. We counted 20 goldfish and organized them in groups of 5's. We practiced counting by 5's and then ate our goldfish. We also counted our fingers and toes as practice of counting by 5's to get to 20. We stacked 20 cups and the designs were more creative. We were so busy, we almost ran out of time!
Happy 10th Day of school - August 12, 2016
We had some special activities for our 10th day of school We made a bundle of 10 straws and moved them from the ones to the tens place. We watched a Story Bots video about all the things that come in 10's (fingers, toes, pennies to make a dime, bowling pins, etc.) We colored a 10 frame with 2 colors to show a way to make 10. We got with partners and stacked 10 cups! Students seemed to have a great time stacking cups.
