We have so much to be Thankful for...



































































The holidays are in full swing. Today we enjoyed our families for the Thanksgiving Feast. I loved hearing what everyone was thankful for. Alexis was thankful for our country, Katie was thankful for our classroom, Devin was thankful for the soldiers, and Elaina was thankful she was not bald... I am thankful for a wonderful group of kids to work with everyday! Happy Thanksgiving!

Roller Coasters, Readers, and more...

Wow, we have been busy. We built roller coasters to learn about motion. Each student designed and built a roller coaster. Some learned that the car (a gumball) would not stay on the track if you turned the track upside down. We had a special treat! Ms. Snyder shared some great big books. Do you know what a googley glocker is? We do! We have a mystery reader tomorrow. We have learned 2 clues, but have 1 more to go - we can't wait till the mystery is solved! What a great week of learning!
