February 9, 2010: Reader’s Theater

One of our reading groups worked really hard this past week preparing for a reader's theater. The name of the play is: The Daddy Long-Legs and the Fly. They worked hard on fluency and expression. They also worked hard out in the hallway drawing and coloring some scenery (it's hard to see it behind them). Congratulations to Brooke, Kaileigh, Sydney, Jacob, Matthew, and Cooper, you guys did a great job!!!

February 8, 2010: Media Center Murals

We recently had some beautiful murals painted in the media center. A big one with the trees and bears was painted on a side wall and all of the others were painted around the top of the center of the room. The next time you’re in the building, stop by and take a look.

February 5, 2010: Cookie Assembly Line

This week we started a new unit in Social Studies called “People at Work”. As part of that unit, we are learning about assembly lines. Today we made our own assembly lines to produce smiley face cookies. We set up 4 assembly lines at our desks. We had 6 jobs at each assembly line. The jobs included: froster, eyes, nose, mouth, inspector, and packaging. When we were done we got to eat them, YUMMY!!!
