We had an amazing field trip to Shelburne Farms where we learned about Vermont animals in winter. Students loved spending time exploring in the woods,  discovering and following animal tracks. It was an incredible day!

catching up

Hi Families,

I’ve been taking pictures for months and completely forgot to update the blog.  OOPS! Hopefully you enjoy catching up on the last few months. We’ve had a lot of fun in room 193!

 

Room 193 kiddos participate in MBS Assemblies 

UNICEF

Our class did an amazing job organizing our UNICEF drive this year. Students made posters, labeled,  organized boxes  and delivered them to  each classroom.  Students  practiced a script and visited every classroom in the school to encourage students to participate in Trick or Treat for UNICEF.  We then organized all of the change by grade level and put the bills in order so that the bank could easily count them. I was so proud of all of their hard work! Fifth graders raised$345.44, fourth graders raised $550.01 and third graders raised $908.66 for a total donation of $1804.11 our biggest donation EVER! I am so thankful for our wonderful community!

Happy Halloween!

We had an incredible day today! We started with skittles math. Students came up with questions they had about a bag of skittles. We then sorted, counted and graphed what we saw before we ate them!  We solved some Halloween word problems in math and then explored skittles for a fun science experiment. Students made observations and recorded their findings in their science notebooks. They loved it so much that we are going to try a few other experiments tomorrow. Later in the day I  read  spooky/silly stories and then students read about the history of Halloween. We ended the day learning about spiders and how they move in order to get food. Students created their own orb weaver, crab or jumping spiders to see how they move. Be sure to ask your child about our fun day of learning!

Mazza’s Pumpkin Patch

We had an incredible trip to the pumpkin patch on Monday! We had a lovely walk from school to the pumpkin patch. We then enjoyed a tractor ride, students picked their pumpkins and had a special treat. After our donut and cider, students had some time to feed the animals and play on the playground before we walked back to school. It was a great way to start the week. Later that afternoon, we weighed and measured our pumpkins and spent some time writing a huge list of adjectives to describe our pumpkins. We will now use that list to write pumpkin poetry and do some scientific writing about pumpkins. Be sure to ask your kiddo about our fun field trip!

Bayside Team Building Fun!

We had an incredible trip to Bayside Park today. The entire Harmony House spent the morning together laughing , playing and getting to know one another a bit better. It was a fantastic way to start the week. Be sure to ask your kiddo about it.  A few highlights included the beautiful walk to the park,  gaga ball and lots of fun!

Outdoor Classroom

Students spent time exploring the outdoor classroom last week during writing time.  It was wonderful to see them using their senses to influence their writing. Be sure to ask your child about some of the incredible sights, sounds, smells and feelings from the garden!

Welcome to Room 193!

We’ve had a fantastic start to the school year! We’re building a strong classroom  community focusing on the school rules of respect, responsibility and safety.  We learn and work together while supporting each other and celebrating each unique individual.  Please meet  the 2018-2019 Feisty Panthers!
