It’s a short week! I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season with their family and loved ones. I look forward to hearing all the special stories from the children when we return!

The students will be completing a project in January and will need to have a shoebox ready at home. Please set one aside so they are ready. If you have any extras, feel free to send in. Thank you!

Makerspace Intro

I’m very excited to introduce the students to Makerspace time. This will be the third year I have done this in class and it’s been a big hit!

Here is a video of what our Makerspace time looked like in the past (may want to adjust volume down before playing):



Here are few others weโ€™ve been watching in class to get inspired!

Updates, Fun Fact, & Photos

Hello! I hope everyone has had a nice weekend. With the short week there will be no spelling words or homework sent home. We will resume our normal schedule next week. ๐Ÿ™‚

The students and I have been having a fun together. During our writing workshop we dim the lights and listen to instrumental music while they are writing independently. I usually use Pandora and stumbled across the Brooklyn Duo. They do cello/piano duets and cover current popular songs. I found it super amusing when their cover of the song Seven came on. Over half the students were singing the words to themselves. Most of them didn’t even realize they were doing it. Ask them about our writing time. They’ve been enjoying it! Here’s the song for your own enjoyment. ๐Ÿ™‚


Here are some photos I was able to take during our feast on Thursday. Thank you to everyone who was able to donate items and to the parents who were able to volunteer. The students had a great time!
