Earth Spirit Day

Earth Spirit day was a success! We learned all about the animals and nature right in our own backyard. 


Freshwater fish in our local rivers


Feathers and furs


 Tarantula, some snakes and little lizards 

Birds of prey

Soil and how it helps 





Nature hike


Looking for rabbits, and birds 





Overall a great day! 

Writing Celebration!

We completed our research on jobs and were excited to present our knowledge and writing with some of the 4th graders who are also working on similar research. The students worked really hard and it was great to see how much they learned and how enthusiastic they were about this project. 


One of the first things we did was to research different jobs and choose our top 3 interests. 





We then shared what we learned with each other


Working together to edit 





First we practiced with our high school helper. 

Everyone read to the 4th graders

Some brave volunteers read to the entire class 

Music producers 

Dance instructors

Nurses

Football scouts

Robotic engineers 

What a great project!

Paging the second grade doctors

Today we entered into Giglio Memorial Hospital (our classroom 😉) and every student became a surgeon! Our patients were words that needed to be surgically put together as new words! 

We got our supplies ready




And with the heartbeat sounds in the background we began our work





















It was a success!!

Busy Week

My oh my what a busy week!! So busy in fact It took me this long to post our exciting adventures!!

Monday we began the week with our Elf projects! We read: How to Catch an Elf and put our  creativity and STEM stills together to create some pretty awesome traps!












We even wrote about How To Catch our Elves















Next we went outside on Tuesday, there wasn’t a lot of snow but the kids had a blast- I was too cold to take pictures that day! 


PJ day Wednesday, and Grinch day!


This was a first for me and a favorite!! Another STEM challenge. 

After reading the book and doing some Grinch writing
I challenged the kids to create their own Grinch sled. They could make it any way they wanted with the materials provided: Paper, string, tape, glue, candy canes and a Grinch. The sled needed to make it both up and down Grinch Mountain without dropping 8 “gifts” (math cubes) It was so cool to see them crate and then revise their projects to make them better! 





















Looking forward to to wrapping it up tomorrow with a music concert in the morning, our class party, centers, games and snacks! Happy Holidays and enjoy your family time! Thank you for the gift of your child!
