 Morning Messages

I only remembered to take pictures of three of my Morning Messages last week so I included a picture of the message that is on the whiteboard, too:





This week we are working on visualizing, and I think this poem has very vivid images - especially around here where the trees are bare, and the remaining leaves are crunchy!

On the half day, teachers had the opportunity to work on report cards which go home next Friday.  It's amazing that the first trimester is already over!




Thankful Turkey

I managed to forget to take a picture of this fun activity last week in which each student decorates a turkey feather and writes what he/she is thankful for:



I love how each student personalizes their turkey feather!

 Gingerbread Exchange

We are participating in a Gingerbread Exchange which involves writing a letter about our state and decorating a gingerbread person.  We then send off our creations to 22 other classes from around the USA, and they send us their creations.  So far, we have received one gingerbread from a school in Putnam, CT.

The kids wrote detailed and interesting letters - they even used their Social Studies books!

Here's the sad part - I was so busy marveling at their creativity that I forgot to take pictures!  Luckily, two students are still finishing up so I can take pictures of their letters and gingerbread person next week!

In the meantime, here are last year's examples:





Holiday Music From Around The World

We had an assembly about Holiday Music From Around the World put on by Bright Star Theatre based in Asheville, NC:


My favorite part was the Chinese New Year Dragon Dance (picture on bottom right).
