October is Fire Safety Month

This year we had another great visit from the R-7 firefighters! The kids love when they come to visit! They do a great job talking to the kids and making sure they know the proper safety tips. Here are some pictures of our fire safety week.

Homecoming 2014


This year's homecoming theme was Disney, and it was a hit!! The costumes were great, tons of participation, and our kids loved it just as much as the older ones.  Here are some pictures from the week.

Every Kid Counts

What a great day to be a Blue Jay! To kick off our homecoming week, our character summit (a group of students who meets with or superintendent to discuss ideas and concerns) asked for each child to have a shirt.  Our superintendent made it happen! Each child received a free shirt that says every kid counts.  We met and had a district picture taken.  The students had a blast and got to dance with the older students.  Here are some pictures and even a video of the morning.

Classroom Happenings

Here are a few pictures from the fun we had this week.  
We are learning about shapes, and for snack we had crackers shaped as rectangles, squares, and triangles. I wish I could have found hexagons, but I didn't have any luck! 




This we also learned about color mixing.  We read the book, Mouse Paint, and mixed food coloring using paper towels.  The students were all able to have a good view with the help of our document camera. I don't know how I taught with one before.  Here are a few pictures below.  





Here we are learning about sorting by color.  



They all look so serious concentrating and working so hard!
