Catching Up

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve updated the blog. There’s been a lot going on in our classroom. Here’s what we’ve been up to:

Bella’s grandpa, Mike ‘Lefty’ Curran came to talk to our class about his experiences as the goalie on the US men’s  hockey team  in the 1972 Olympics in Sapporo, Japan. He showed his silver medal and other memorabilia. As it was the start of the Souchi Games, students were very interested in what Mr. Curran’s story.

For Valentine’s Day, we went on a scavenger hunt in small groups within the classroom. Students also enjoyed their Valentine exchange. Thanks for all the candy :-). I shared it with my family. They say ‘thank you’, too!

To kick off our dental health unit, we had 2 guest speakers come from Kotterman Orthodontics. Kristen and Kristy shared dental health facts and good teeth brushing habits.

This week we had fun doing some  Book Fiesta buddy activities in the media center with our 5th grade buddy class as part of ‘I Love to Read’ month.

Oh, and I just about forgot our sledding party last week. It was on Thursday, before our 6th day that school was closed this year. The snow was falling heavily by mid-afternoon, but everyone still had great fun sledding down the Rice Lake hill. By the time we came in, our clothes were soaked through but the temps were warm and the falling snow, quite lovely. Thanks to Mrs. Fehr and Mrs. Shipley for braving the weather and helping out. We had donuts and hot chocolate when we came back in.

With March upon us, hopefully temperatures are going to rebound and the students can get back outside to play.

3 of our students will be performing in the School House Rock, Jr. musical today and tomorrow. Good luck Jedd, Hana, and Bella!! Performances are tomorrow (Sat.) at 2:00 and 6:00.

Being new at blogging, I can’t quite figure out how to include photos taken from my phone into this post, so stay tuned for some further posts with pictures from the events mentioned.

Have a great weekend. No math homework-we just completed a short unit on quadrilaterals, diagonal lines, and midpoint lines. Use this opportunity to work on math through MobyMax.
