We got a lot done, following our three weeks of Winter Break. We compared unit fractions, wrote narratives with rising action, built background knowledge with the application EdPuzzle, and identified “One Word” for 2019. It was a great day of learning.
We had a great time with our 2018 holiday celebration. Our classroom Room Parents created an experience that kept the kids engaged for well over an hour with a Christmas themed relay race, an elf ornament, spiced orange pomander balls creation station, and a snowman wrap race. This was followed by lunch.
Thanks to all the parents, and grandparents, who helped with this by volunteering hours and food.
Today we completed an Hour of Code and joined millions of other students in promoting Computer Science outcomes. This was certainly not our first work with coding. In fact, we have taken our understanding of block coding and applied it to our Kanos and Spheros. This was unique because it allowed us to part of something bigger. It was a chance to share an experience with millions of students across the country and the world.
To start, thank you to my Room Parents who organized a great experience for the students. The children competed in a pumpkin relay race, finished a craft, braided rope/tug toys for dogs, that will be donated, and did an event involving marshmallows and vampire teeth!
Thank you parents for bringing in so much food and donating items and time to our 2018 Halloween Celebration.
Great day for a field trip and a chance to learn more about arthropods in our neighborhood and habitat. Educators from the Truckee Meadows Parks led the effort and had students use aspirators, beating sheets, and a great deal of persistence to locate and draw insects into a tube. In turn, students ran a tally of what they found to learn what is most common in our area.
As always, thank you parents for all of your help.
