Today we had an unexpected visitor appear! We have an elf! Our elf will be leaving us little messages and give us "kindness challenges" each day. This will help reinforce Plattin's four character words: respect, responsibility, friendship, and honesty. Students will also be writing about our elf a few days a week. The kids are so excited to start this adventure with him!

We are well on our way through our shape unit. With our new math program we are diving in deep! Our students even learned that a square is a special kind of rectangle! We have gone on many shape hunts, learned about the different attributes of the shapes such as points and curved or straight lines, faces of 3D shapes and much more! Here are some pictures of us learning about shapes!

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!
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!

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!
