The Olympic Creed reads:
“The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.”
Wow, what a wonderful week we had researching our countries and learning interesting facts about the Sochi Winter Olympics using a variety of resources in the library. We also had the unique opportunity to SKYPE with Mrs. Ott’s class at Kaechle Elementary to ask them “thick questions” about each of their countries. It was way cool to be LIVE sharing information! We ended the week painting the Olympic rings on tshirts to wear during the Opening Ceremonies and designing flags to place around the “Medal Bar Graph” we have on display in our hallway. The enthusiasm in our room is contagious and very uplifting! Please continue this excitement and positive experience by going to the link in my Portal “Olympic Truce Wall” and BLOG your own peace truce.
Welcome Winter! The frigid temperatures have surprised us with 2 school delays and a snowy morning! We are all wearing our pj’s inside out and are placing spoons under our pillows in the hopes for a SNOW DAY!!! If you want to LOL, go to our Vimeo Videos to see a snowy day video clip of Mrs. Ramsey and Mr. Brinkman!
What a fabulous fall season we are having at Rivers Edge! We are beyond thrilled to announce the dedication of our Sensory Garden which was researched and designed by many of my former students. We are thankful to Vulcan Materials for making our dreams and visions come true! Please take some time to visit this beautiful garden located in the back of our school. You truly won’t believe your eyes, ears or nose!
Welcome to our blog where we all FIT in! Mr. Brinkman and I are looking forward to a fabulous 4th grade year!
I am your language arts (reading, writing, and word study) and science teacher this year. In case you haven’t already heard, we have a treadmill, 2 stationary bikes, 3 pedal bikes, and 25 stability seats in our classroom which help us exercise our brain and our body. Check out my “Read and Ride” program at this link to see how we will be staying FIT!
We will also be using a valuable resource called “My Portal” often. Please browse these folders and bookmark this link on your home computer now! What’s your favorite site?
You are superstars! Visit our website where your videos from the school year will be posted.
