PTA Movie Night

Our PTA Movie Night was a huge success! If you have not joined the PTA yet, you still can. It is a great way to support the school. Contact me for details! :)

Talk Like a Pirate Day!

We spent the day talking like pirates, using complete sentences and doing a reader's theater with puppets. The students really enjoyed using their oral language and reading skills during Pirate Day!

Apples, Apples, Apples!


Attendance PIE!!!

Our school encourages students to come to school on time and everyday. When a class accumulates 10 days of perfect attendance with no tardies, they are able to see their teacher get a pie in the face!
Well my little kinder kiddos met that goal TODAY! I left feeling a little sticky, but the kids loved it!

Interactive Notebooks

This year we are using interactive notebooks in Phonics, Math, and Reading/Writing. The students use hands on items, paired with activities for learning and then use their notebooks as a reference guide. Today they used hand lenses to "hunt" for their sight word. The sight word was located in TEENY TINY print around the picture, so they really had to hunt to find them all! :-) 

Science Vocabulary

Each day Ms. Thomas, the principal of MES, comes on the announcements and tells us the "Science Word of the Day". The kids got to experiment with "hand lenses", which was our word for Tuesday. They had so much fun making things around the classroom bigger!
