Fire Safety Fun!

For Fire Safety month, our local fire department came and taught us about fire safety.  The students learned the importance of having an escape plan, having smoke detectors, to stop, drop, and roll, and much more! The students also met Sparky the dog and got to climb in a fire truck! 

Out of This World Homecoming Parade!

We have sure been busy the past few weeks!  Here are some pictures from our Space-themed Homecoming Day Parade! Students loved seeing the high school helpers and the different floats.  We also learned about the pumpkin lifecycle as well as reading several nonfiction and fiction books.  Here is our picture with our silly faces and our class pumpkin and some from the parade!

Our tablets are up and running! The students are so excited and so am I! We will be using the tablets in small group, while group, and independently.  Here are the students getting to know a new app.

I have been very pleased with our new math series, Eureka Math! Our old series was no longer reaching the math standards as well as we liked.  In just these first few weeks, students are showing me such a greater and deeper understanding  of numbers! I'm sure we will continue to see great things! Here are some pictures of the great hands-on activities we are doing!

Open House 2015

Tonight was my 10th open house! (My first year started after Open House.) It was so great to meet all of my new kindergarteners! I feel this is going to be a great class this year! So many were so excited about staring school! I've taught many grade levels, but kindergarten is my favorite. I love how they learn and grow so much in just a short year! Check out some of my pictures of my classroom.

Students and Activities Worth Melting for...

This week we read several books and did several activities about snowmen.  We read The Biggest Best Snowman, The Best Snowman Ever, Sadie the Snowman and more.  Here are some pictures of the writings and activities we did.  We even made snowmen out if shaving cream and glue!

We Run for St. Jude!

This was our second year, we had a pledge run for St. Jude. It always makes me so proud to work with such amazing dedicated teachers, parents, and students.  Our entire building shuts down for the day, and we head over to the middle school track to run for St. Jude. The students tally laps and many have gotten pledges.  The bracelets the students wore this year had an actual St. Jude patient's name on it so the students had someone to run for.  They ran their little hearts out and at the end they even got medals!! Here are a few pictures from the day.
