Five For Fabulous Friday!

Hello there!  I'm finally linking up with Doodle Bugs for:

We had our annual Goodyear Spelling Bee (this news is a week late).  Here are the winners:

(From the left:  Mrs. Dicky (parent volunteer); John, 2nd place; Mia, 1st place; Mr. Kessaris (principal)


Every student received a pencil for their participation.




We've been writing about and sharing our special objects:



Some examples of special objects include stuffed animals and siblings.  Liam wrote about his younger sister, and his Mom was kind enough to bring Krista in so we could all meet her.


We're doing centers about US landmarks and symbols.  There are five centers with two attractions in each.  In New York, the kids visit the Statue of Liberty and Niagara Falls.  In another, the sites include the Grand Canyon and the Gateway Arch.  Each student has a suitcase that they carry to the center.  After reading about the information and completing the pamphlet, they place it in their suitcase:

We had a visit from  Weird Science:


The kids spent 90 minutes learning about electricity and magnets.




During snack, we're reading one of my very favorite read-alouds - Judy Moody Declares Independence - by Megan McDonald:


In this book, the Moody Family takes a family trip to Boston to visit the sites.  It's a fun, funny and educational story all rolled into one!

We have two more weeks of school - the last day is June 26th.  Have a wonderful week!

  1. Love the suitcase activity! We did a similar activity where we created an "American Symbols i-Pad:; each app was a famous landmark or symbol. Enjoy the end of the school year!
