Not only did we find out that we won the door decorating competition, but we also had a fun science lesson! Today we played with shadows and experimented with what happens when the position of the light source is changed. We also got to have our movie party with Mr. Lyman for winning snowflake wars and students who completed their reading calendars received a free book! What a way to kick off spring break! See everyone on April 13th!
The superstars and their amazingly generous families purchased 1,726 snowflakes!!! That means our class alone raised more than $430 for Elmwood! That is just astounding!!
We received this awesome snowflake trophy to hang in our room for the rest of the year. We will get to enjoy a popcorn and movie party with Mr. Lyman and receive scholastic bucks for the book fair. However, the most exciting thing is that we raised more than $2,000 for our school in one week! JUST INCREDIBLE!!! We spent some time talking about how amazing team effort this fundraiser was and about what it means to be classy winners. There was great joy when our class was announced as the winners, but the class truly seems to understand that winning wasn't the most important thing. What beautiful hearts they all have!
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!
Ms. davidson and the superstars
