When we walked into our classroom this morning we were surprised that a little visitor had been playing some tricks on us! Pinky O'Toole left us a note an hid a bunch of our chairs in the bathroom! What a tricky little leprechaun!!
We also had 11 superstars complete the reading challenge for the first 2 weeks of reading month! Way to go!
Wow! so much has happened since my last blog post! The superstars and I have been busy learning and growing together.
This is a busy week at Elmwood! We kicked off March is Reading Month on Monday with some flashlight partner reading.
It was perfect for our theme: Spotlight on Reading! Snowflake Wars is in full effect! the superstars have already purchased 125 snowflakes and we are tied for 8th place. We are striving to win some scholastic bucks and maybe even the grand prize... a movie party with Mr. Lyman! All proceeds go directly to Elmwood. The battle concludes this Friday.
Elmwood PTO is hosting a Green Eggs and Ham breakfast tomorrow to celebrate reading month. It begins at 7:30 and ends at 8:15. There will be coffee! Hope to see you there!
The superstars have been working on division and are just rocking it! They know 5 different methods for solving division equations and understand which ones are most efficient.
We are finishing up an author study on Eve Bunting. The students have fallen in love with her books! So far we have read: Fly Away Home, December, Wednesday Surprise, A Day's Work and Some Frog. Ask your superstar to tell you about their favorite!
Our Valentine celebration was fabulous! thank you to everyone who donated supplies and helped out at the party. It was truly a day filled with love and kindness! Pictures coming soon.
We have been surviving indoor recess and keeping our minds ready to learn with brain breaks using gonoodle.com We have way too much fun singing and dancing!
