Hands on Fun!

Which has more mass?   In math, we have been learning about measurement.  We have measured using meter and yard sticks,  finding volume using graduated cylinders, and now we are finding the mass using a pan balance.  Below, you will see the students measuring different objects, and recording their data!

Korver and Javier working together.

Inside recess brings out the best in all of us!
Never a dull moment in our classroom!  Joseph and Pedro are helping make my tie blanket.   


Did you know China had a Yellow River?  Did you know that the people in China invented paper?   Today, we were so excited to do a WEBQUEST on China.  We learned some neat information.  Below are some students working together to search for information.

I can't believe it is December already!  Where has the time gone?   We have been so busy in school, and the kids are working so hard!  We have been working hard in math on our addition and subtraction facts.  Reading is improving, and we are also improving on our comprehension.

Cold weather is here!  Please be sure to send warm clothes with your child to school everyday.  Coats, gloves, hats, scarves, and when the snow comes  (and stays),  boots and snowpants.
If you have any questions or concerns,  feel free to email me at :

or call the school at:


Thank you!
