Valentine's Day Surprise!


We had a heartwarming surprise from some of our Fabulous Fifth Graders! They wrote and performed a poem, then gave us baskets filled with thoughtful gifts from their hearts, and tasty treats and chocolate! What a special day! We celebrated their writing skills with an Author's Celebration, which included readings and munching.

Colonial America

Students are learning about life in Colonial America. Here they are creating a Venn diagram to compare and contrast then and now. They have especially enjoyed information about the rules for children during that time period. For example, children could not sit with their legs crossed!



Snow Day Surprise!!

We had a snow day this week, and one of our students used her time to bake a surprise for our class! To go along with our Colonial America unit of study, she baked and decorated a cake to show the original 13 colonies!
