Fall Fun!

Fall Fun!

Sending October off in a fun fall way!  The students had a great time working on their fall craft, creating fall wreaths.  We also had a special guest join us for mystery reader who was extra spooky  and festive for Halloween. Thanks again Mrs. Reed (check the picture below!) Be on the look out for fall wreaths and Halloween poems coming home today.

Happy Halloween and have a safe and fun weekend!

We are Adding Machines!

We are Adding Machines!

Last week we reviewed our basic addition facts. After reading the story The Sneetches, we created our own machines, much like the story. The students used their creativity to produce a machine incorporating an adding rule. The students had numbers that went in, a rule and the numbers that came out. In this picture below you will see how creative some of us are! Lila made hers into a water drop, incorporating the water cycle into math:)  Parents, be on the look out in your child’s folder this week and  have them explain their machine to you!

PTA Fun Run Thursday 10/15

PTA Fun Run Thursday 10/15

We look forward to seeing all those who registered for this year’s Fun Run on

Thursday, October 15th.

 

Registration begins at 2:45 pm but you only need to come about 20 minutes before your child(ren)’s scheduled warm-up time.

Please keep in mind that ASE will be in session until 3:40 so it may be crowded in the parking lot. It is best to park on the side of the school closest to the bus loop, where registration will be and races start.

ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST GO HOME directly after school and return to the race with an adult. Children who participate in ASE are welcome to leave early if this is most convenient.

 

We hope you are able to make the great event! Remember no Thursday homework 🙂

Thursday- Super Hero Day

Friday- Wacky (free) Day

Water, Water Everywhere!

Water, Water Everywhere!

Rain, rain go away! We have embraced all this rainy weather by starting our Water Cycle Unit. This week we have talked about words like evaporation, condensation and precipitation.  We put together a Movie this morning called “Follow the Rain Drop”. We worked with a partner (s) to put pictures in the correct order and then added our own touches with creating a story of the raindrop to the pictures. We will begin learning and practicing a reader’s theater that we will be presenting in the upcoming weeks. We also have learned a fun song to help us remember the water cycle process. Ask your child to sing it for you at home!
