we have had a busy week. along with our regular work we have been finishing up end of the year assessments and getting our portfolios and journals in order.
we are practicing 6's this week.
love this ship Tripp built!
we watched a YouTube video about front loader and side loader garbage trucks. the boys really liked this!
we walked over to the stadium and let out some energy on the football field. we ran races and searched for numbers and letters!
really gonna miss this girl :(
so proud to be the Home of the Tigers!
we read The Adventures of Gary and Harry on last time and then drew them in our journals.
"The Adventures of Gary and Harry - A Tale of Two Turtles Deep in the sparkling sea two playful sea turtles, Gary, a green sea turtle and Harry, a hawksbill turtle explore their ocean home. Together, the two friends discover a vast array of fascinating marine life and the challenges they often face in the deep blue sea."
we fingerpainted 6's, too!
we watched Peter's Chair and drew about the story in our journals.
"Peter is well aware that there is a new baby in the house. His mother shushes him when he makes his tower of blocks fall. And he's also well aware that the new baby's a girl. For everything that used to be Peter's has been painted pink! "
we also practiced writing 7's.
and we made Ms. Poole, our music teacher, a special birthday card :)
loved listening to these two play with the animal counters, deciding which ones could swim in the water. :D

Reminder: The students need to wear Western clothes, no hats, for the program on Thursday morning. Students need to be at school by 9:30 a.m. dressed and ready. The parents and visitors can walk on over to the auditorium. The teachers will bring the students. We will not have a reception afterwards this year due to the cafeteria being closed for the rest of the month. The teachers will have the portfolios at the program for you to pick up afterwards. When it is over I will direct parents to wear each teacher is to collect portfolios and take pictures with the teacher. You may take your child home after the program, just be sure to let the teacher know. Let Ms. Annie know if you have any questions. J

we had a wonderful morning at Muffins for Mom...spending time together, opening presents, and eating breakfast. Happy Mother's Day to you all!
we practiced writing 5's one last time on the smartboard...
learned all about the octopus...
and played a shell matching game.
we always have fun learning with Clifford!
he even had us walking like crabs, swimming like sharks, and standing still like starfish. check out our video!
we also learned about 3-dimensional shapes and brainstormed examples.
then we made signs for the school that say "Don't be a litterbug!"
our afternoon centers were a memory game,
alphabet bottle top match,
and writing in our journals.
thanks for the kind words and gifts this week during Teacher Appreciation Week. I have the best job in the world at the best school in the world with the best kids in the world!
