Dice Fun!!!!


It's snowing here in northeast Wisconsin!  4-7 inches by tomorrow!!!

Last week Friday we integrated dice into math lesson!  I gave each students a set of dice and they needed to reach 50 before their opponent.  One person would print numbers (counting by 1) while the other person rolled the dice trying to roll doubles.  Once he/she rolled doubles they needed to switch rolls.  The first person to print his/her numbers to 50 was the winner!!  DOUBLES!!!

Happy Veteran's Day

Happy Veteran's Day!

What a Patriotic Day!

We had a Veteran's Day Assembly at the 11th hour and sang patriotic songs.

We also shared stories of what family members shared with us who are Veterans!

A big thank you to Mr. Andre and Mr. Burdette-two fathers of our students who know what it means to serve the U.S.A.

God's blessings,

Red, white, and blue smiles

Super Reader, Estimation Jar, and Me Bag


Fridays are the days one of my students is able to be a Super Reader and bring in a Me Bag.
He/she chooses a picture book to read to the class.  Additionally, he/she chooses non-editable items to put in an Estimation Jar.  Finally, he/she puts 5 items in the Me Bag.  Students are given 3 clues about each item, guesses are heard, and then the item is revealed.  Thorough this activity, many Speaking/Listening Common Core Standards are met.

Measuring Fun!

HELLO!  Wow, 1st quarter ends tomorrow!  Are you able to keep up with the zipping time?

Today we measured in yards.  We discovered and proved that 1 yard is equal to 36 inches and 3 feet.

We measure items in the room, the classroom floor, and the hallway.

We also discovered a bat and our classroom door width is exactly 1 yard long.
