Grandparents Week

We had over 800 guests at the elementary last week for Grandparents Week!  The children were so excited to share their school, their teachers, their learning with them.  Many of the teachers invited the grandparents to the classroom before lunch where they had some special activities planned.  Below is a song that kindergarten students learned to honor their grandparents.

Grandparents (Tune of are you sleeping?)

Grandma, Grandpa. Grandma, Grandpa

Today’s for you. Today’s for you!

We want you to feel special.

To know how much we love you

Yes, we do. Yes, we do.

First Graders to Computer Labs

First Graders are coming to the Computer Lab for the first time this year!  So far they have learned the parts of the computer and how to turn on and shut down the computers.  They have also been learning basic mouse skills through the story "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" by Laura Joffe Numeroff.  We will continue working on our mouse skills and start learning the location of the keys on the keyboard.

News from Mrs. Hanahan, Third Grade Reading Teacher

News from Mrs. Hanahan, third grade reading teacher:

Wow!!!!  What an amazing first week of school!  My students are enjoying daily interactive read-alouds and discussions.  They were so excited to be introduced to the classroom library and their writer's notebook.  Students are already keeping reading logs of their independent reading at home and school.  We are still learning how to choose books at the right reading level, along with effective classroom rules and procedures.  With the hard work and dedication my kiddos have shown, I'm confident this will be a successful school year!

Kindergarten News!

The students have been doing an amazing job with learning our routines.  They are getting to know one another and each other’s names.  We do getting to know you activities during our daily morning meeting.  We do a variety of activities that include singing songs, telling our favorite things, and reading our morning message.  This is building and establishing a community environment in our classroom.  Establishing a community and deep understanding of our rules and importance will make future learning more meaningful. 

 

Mr. Rethman’s Class, 5th grade Science, Week # 1
This week, we started to learn the foundations of all science inquiry with the scientific method. The students were able to apply their knowledge of the scientific method principles in perfo...rming a toilet paper strength lab to see which toilet paper brand was the best. The students tested this, recorded their data, and wrote their first science lab report using the middle school science lab report template. The students also began working on learning about the interactions of animals in the environment by creating their own class food web. They applied their knowledge of food chains to create several in the process of this activity. As a class, we talked about the stress that can be put on an environment and what would happen if an organism died in a food chain and food web.
