What a fantastic day! Even thought it did not snow, we had a cool time! We started the morning after receiving a letter back from Frosty saying he would do what he could to help make our day white. We cut snowflakes and wrote about how we are all special. We made sugar cube houses (thanks to all the moms who donated). We had a winter weather clothing race. We had a snow ball fight with numbers, and ended the day by learning about temperature and enjoying a WHITE snack.
I hope your kids had as much fun as I did.

I wanted to let you know that conference reminders will be in the Friday folder. For parents that were not at Curriculum Night, I have assigned times. There is a spot to sign and return to confirm your time. I am looking forward to meeting with each of you to discuss your student's progress!
One other new thing to look for. Your student will begin coming home with a big zip lock in place of their Purple Reading Folder. I learned quickly that the folders were not going to hold up to all the great reading we are doing. I am hoping this will be a better solution.
Thanks and have a terrific day!

This is what we did...
Avery - "We made applesauce"
Andrew "the applesauce was awful"
Trischell "It taste like cinnamon"
Alexis "we investigated the apple sauce, by using our senses"
Elaina "the apples sauce was the best - I had 3 cups"
Harrison, Nicholas and Zachary. agree with Elaina
We had a fun day learning and investigating! Mrs. Johnson is going to add the pictures later this weekend (because she left the camera cord at home!)

This is my photostory. Every year I have made something like this and showed my kids at the end of the year. I used a half broken microphone I had at home so it is hard to hear but I love how easy it is to use. I think the kids will have a blast telling reading their stories and bringing them to life!

The google reader helped ease my frustration with trying to stay connected to all the wonderful information that is out there on blogs. I see that helpful for collaboration with other professionals is a very simple way (almost mimicking e-mail)!

I loved how the "cool cat teacher" shared the comment from the 3rd grade student. What a great reinforcement of positive self-esteem. For children who are shy, commenting can really build self-esteem in a more protected environment.
I spent time visiting other sites - It can be a little overwhelming. I made comments ont he following blogs:
