Words that talk...

The Poets in 1st grade are learning all about special way to use words to make poems. Yesterday was alliteration. Today was onomatopoeia!  Look at these great examples with just one day of playing with these words!

Art Hits the Road!

Today we were treated to the SBISD Museum Road Show.  Docents from the Altharetta Yeargin Art Museum came into our classes. We learned about art from South America and then had the opportunity to make some of our own.  It was great fun. I know the kids loved it because they worked very hard!

Finding the pattern in numbers

As adults we just think "it's just that way".   We have been using math to make a connection between "just because" and "oh ya". Today we were building numbers and looking at 1 less, 1 more, 10 less, and 10 more!  It was great when students realized 1 less from 4 groups of 10 means we have to break a group back into ones!  It was a true lightbulb moment!

Who let the DOGS out

DOG - Dad of great students!  Every dad in my class is a DOG.  We have been lucky to have 2 DOGS join us for a day. Me. Rodriguez was very busy in Thursday, working with kids, laminating, searching the lost and found, and just watching how hard we work. 

A few weeks ago Mr Berg joined us. He even got to take part in a fire drill.   His comment at the end if the day, y'all are very busy!

Email me if you are interested in being a watch Dog, I will send your information to the right person.
