Dogs, Horses, and Cows...Eee Iii Eee Iii O!

Friday was a fun filled day full of excitement! We started the day with a visit from a real Musher and one of her sled dogs. The kids thought it was supper funny to see me in all the gear! I am amazed at what has to be done to run that race! Square Dancing is always one of my favorite (unfortunately my camera died - pictures will be coming soon thanks to Mrs. Schleinschok), and we finished out the crazy day with a visit to the milking cow. This was a great day of learning outside the walls of our classroom!

Technology, Fun, and Learning!

This has been a week of technology starts in our class. I have had kids all week using the computers to practice certain spelling patters. One group is making a digital short vowel scrap book. One group has used our questioning lessons to learn more about Tornadoes. They have produced a little video that I think you will enjoy and find informative.

I hope you have a wonder weekend and remember our Valentine Party is at 2:15 - all are welcome.

Hello again!

Wow! where did January go? We have been so busy that we have forgotten to make a post on the blog. I hope the new year has kicked off good for each of you. I know I was glad to be back in a routing and see my sweet kiddos again. The best part of January is the growth that we see. Reading and writing is happening with great care and attention to detail.

Here is what a few have said about the new year back at MWE...
Karime "I am glad to be back and see my friends"
Katie "Yea - I get a button on the front row!"
Andrew "I finally got my desk in a different spot"
Devon "Can we write all day?"

Bundle up tightly tomorrow is going to be another cold day (ask your student what kind of word tightly is...they will know it is an adverb!)
