Friday Finale

We cannot believe that it is May already! What a week we had!

This week, we began our research projects on lady bugs. We have learned SO much about ladybugs. Do you know that ladybugs can be colors other than red? They can be white, orange, and even yellow! Ask your child about the page that they published in our big book about ladybugs!

On Wednesday, we got to watch the 4th and 5th grade band, orchestra, and chorus perform for us. They did an amazing job! We enjoyed seeing all of the hard work that they did.

Today, we went to library. Mrs. Myer read us a fictional book about bugs. It was really funny! After, we were able to check out books and draw our very own made up bug. Library always makes me so happy. I love to see everyone with their newly checked out books. We are able to share pictures, words, and our thoughts about the books that we choose.

 Today, we also wished Ms. McMahon luck. She will be moving upstairs to teach second grade until the end of the year. Though this is great for her professional life, it will not make us miss her any less. We were able to tell her the things that we appreciated about her, which was very sweet to hear. We will be welcoming Ms. McGowan to our classroom starting on Monday.

Magnet Show


Mr. Musselman brought in the Science Center's amazing magnet show. We learned about different types of magnets, the poles of the magnets, and magnetic materials. This was a great culmination of the learning we did about magnets before vacation.

Happy 100th Day of School!

We celebrated our 100th day of school today! Thank you to the families who came in to help out. We couldn't have done it without you.

Writing and Aquarium Fun

Last week, Room 177 was lucky enough to get to meet and work with a famous author, Kelly Boswell. We worked on writing procedural posters. We had a lot of ideas! We will be continuing to work on procedural writing (how to) over the next few weeks.

On Thursday, we were able to head into Boston to visit fish and other animals at the New England Aquarium. It was a beautiful day, and not too crowded, so a great time was had by all! My favorite part was seeing the penguins because they are my favorite animal. Ask your child what their favorite part was. We wrote all about it when we got back to school on Friday!

What A Week So Far!

We have had SO many fun activities this week and it's only Tuesday!

Yesterday, we earned a whole school reward for earning so many STARbucks. Mrs. Dressler invited us to the cafe for popcorn and a movie! We watched the movie, The Lorax, which taught us about how important it was to take care of our environment in a fun way.

Today, Ms. P from the Science Center brought a hedgehog to visit our school to talk about mammals and the book The Mitten by Jan Brett. We have been learning so much about hedgehogs and Ms. P taught us so much more. Be sure to ask your child about a fact that they have learned about hedgehogs.

Happy New Year!

It was so great to be back to school this week. I am definitely one to have a schedule and routine! We missed having our classroom buzzing with learning, fun, and excitement.

We learned about some funny New Year's Eve traditions and then talked about resolutions. We thought about things that we could learn to do, improve upon, or stop doing all together. There were so many great ideas! Some students plan to practice singing, learning to jump on a pogo stick, and keeping their rooms clean.

Today in library, we made a word splash about winter and learned about what animals and humans do in the winter time. Some of us like to play in the snow, eat the snow, and have hot chocolate after playing all day.

Here's our word splash!

Happy Friday and enjoy your weekend!
