Wrapping Up October and Whizzing Into November!

Here in Massachusetts, we had a very warm and pleasant fall ~ highs in the 70's and 80's with plenty of sun.  Well, winter has now arrived with temperatures in the 20's with biting wind.  It's quite a big change!  Either way, time marches on ~ here's what we've been up to!










Happy Veterans Day!

Our Veterans Day assembly is next Tuesday, but we've been learning about this holiday in class, too.  As part of our Morning Messages, I included this beautiful poem by Cheryl Dyson:

Check out the Veterans Day poem here too.

In addition, several students brought in family military artifacts.  Adriana even wrote a book to accompany her father's and grandfather's dog tags:







One Takeaway From the Boston T-P-Tea Party

A week ago Saturday, I went to a very informative and interesting event at the Boston Children's Museum.  Jodi Durgin from The Clutter Free Classroom and Susan Jones put together this event.  I'm sharing one tip I learned from Cheryl of The Fun-Sized Teacher:

TPT tips


Cheryl learned this information while attending an annual Teachers Pay Teachers conference.  Now I'm trying to look at what I make for my own students in an effort to turn it into my own product line!

The Last Word on Halloween

On Halloween, we were supposed to dress like book characters.  This group of girls dressed like the Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood.  They wrote a story to combine the two stories and created a house:

3 Little Pigs and Red Riding Hood


I LOVE when my students write stories just because!

What has made you happy these days?  Thanks for visiting today!
