Memorial Day

To say THANK YOU for all that our United States troops do for us and have done for us, students made Thank You letters for our troops. We will be sending these out to thank the ladies and gentlemen who fight for our country.





Buh-Bye Butterflies! :)

We let our butterfly friends go on Friday. We had five butterflies that we observed go through the full life cycle. Students were super excited to see the butterflies flutter about and go wild when they escaped their observation station.

Frog Day

We are celebrating Frog Day for our ABC list of activities to end the year with excitement and learning!

Students learned about and compared the butterfly and frog life cycles and how they go through metamorphosis. Then, they created comics to display the different stages of the life cycle for each animal.

Rounding Rollercoaster

Here is a visual that I use with students for rounding. It works great if you put it in a sleeve.

Here is the downloadable copy if you are a teacher otherwise parents can just print the visual or send in a note and I can send one home!  :)
