Bus Safety

Memorial School had our annual Bus Safety day today where students and teachers are reminded of what proper bus safety and protocol is.

Kindergarten heard from Officer Schipelliti in the cafeteria where he reinforced rules that ensure all students are safe on the bus. Big thanks to the Burlington Police Department for sending him out to make sure that all Burlington students are safe.

A little misty rain didn't stop us from practicing how to evacuate a bus! Mrs. Reekie and I helped students get off the back of the bus in a calm and safe way. Way to go Kindergarten!

Library Switch

Hi Families!

We had to make a switch to our schedule today. Instead of going to the library, we were able to meet our Third Grade Book Buddies! We are so excited to partner up with the Third Grade Teachers to make this happen. All students will have an older student buddy who we will be meeting with periodically throughout the year. We had so much fun today!

Because we met with our Buddies, we had to reschedule our library time to Monday. Students have the weekend to enjoy their books but please remember to put them in their backpacks for Monday!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

What's Up Wednesday?

Oh my! So much learning and fun has been going on the past week and a half of school.

Last week, we took a break from our math curriculum to play some math games and have some fun. We worked on writing our numbers in shaving cream and played some dice games. It was all fun and games until the fire alarm went off right in the middle of our math block! Ms. McMahon and I were so impressed with how all of our kids were able to listen and follow the teacher directions. We got outside in a quick and quiet manner, despite being covered in shaving cream.

On Friday, we learned about Christopher Columbus and what explorers do. After we went to library, we made some explorer goggles to explore our library books. We learned that explorers look for new places to discover. Here we are exploring our library books that we checked out.

Finally, a choice for filling up our star jar is choosing a show and share item to bring into class and share. We had two exciting show and shares the past week. Isabel brought a baby doll that was given to her by her grandmother and Calianna performed a magic show for us. After sharing, students are allowed to take three questions from their classmates. We loved seeing what Isabel and Calianna had to share!
