We had our Courage Carnival today and it was AWESOME! The students got to buy tickets to play fun games and dunk some teachers and faculty. They had a blast! Parents, thank you for sending money for such a great cause!

We love raising money for Relay for Life!

My Sweet Friend was chosen for the dunk tank!
It was pretty cold at 8:00 A.M.!!

Constitution Village Field Trip

Yesterday I took I my class to Constitution Village in Huntsville, AL. It was a blast! The students got to make crafts, dance, and learn many facts about how life was long age. We even got to meet Besty Ross and she told us about making the first flag. We were very excited about talking to her since we just finished reading Red, White, and Blue last week. We had a great day! Here are a few pictures from our fun filled day.

We were so tired from the long, fun day!!!

Science in Action

Carley in our classroom brought her root viewing vegetable system. I set it up while the students were gone to PE. We planted a radish, a carrot, and a onion. On day one the students are going to predict which vegetable will grow the longest and thickest root. They will also draw a picture of the seed and the root viewing system. Throughout the next few weeks the student will observe and measure the roots and we will be recording the data on our charts. Check out our Root Viewer! Thank you Carley!

Writer's Workshop is what's up!

This past week we got back into writing after having a week off during Spring Break. We started our how to writing unit. The students watched and helped me write how to make a peanut butter sandwich and how to brush your teeth. On Friday, the students were given the topic How to blow a bubble. We met at the carpet and I gave all the students a piece of bubble gum. (Crazy I know I had to threaten them to make sure it didn't end up in someones hair)  After we had all chewed the gum and tried to blow bubbles we began writing. We wrote the steps together and then they wrote it independently. Here is a picture of how it turned out. Also, we have Fine Arts Night coming up on April 16th at 6:00. Here are some pictures of the students art work. This week we are working on Thank you Notes in Writer's Workshop. I can't wait to Blog about it :) Happy Monday!
