Gift from Grace and Her Family

Grace and her family saw the previous post about Snap Circuits and remembered how much Grace's older brothers loved these sets. They decided to order a set for Grace but because they are so thoughtful, they added a second set for the crew to their order. Thank you Grace and family.

I must say that I love how we all (parents, students, Wendy and I) work together as a crew. We are a great team! Thank you for all of your support!

The crew had a great day. Below are a few pictures and a link to the album with all of the pictures from the day. Thanks to Michelle for coming and taking a few pictures for a little while today. Ask your child to tell you all about them. We do have school tomorrow. See you there!

Happy Reading!

We are really becoming readers. When we read now the classroom becomes very still and quiet because everyone gets so involved in their books. It is such a contrast to the beginning of the year when everyone still had to read out loud and listen to themselves read. Below are a few pictures of us reading. We chose where to sit and read.


Homework ~ Read a good book or two. Check out a Bedtime Math story.

Math Explorations

Last Wednesday we did some math explorations. Two of the explorations were to help prepare us for our upcoming Geometry unit and included: making triangles fitting various requirements on geoboards and using pattern blocks to create a larger shape out of smaller shapes. The third exploration was an activity that helped us practice our basic addition facts. We used two beans and an egg carton with numbers written in the bottom of each section. We closed the carton, shook it up and opened it to see what numbers the beans landed on. Then we had to add those numbers together and check our answer with our partner. We had several cartons with a variety of numbers to either increase or decrease the challenge this game offered. This would be a fun game to make and play at home, too.


Homework ~ Read a good book or two. Check out a Bedtime Math story.

Snap Circuits

We added a new set to our Wonder and Explore collection recently. It is the Snap Circuit Electricity set that I mentioned in an earlier post.  This set has been a big hit and inspires lots of creativity, collaboration, communication and critical thinking.

Valentine's Day Photo Booth

Ms. Sue, Grace's mom, set up a fun photo booth during our Valentine's Day party and took pictures. It was a great idea and the crew had so much fun posing. Thanks Ms. Sue for setting it all up and taking the pictures. Check them out below.
