It has been a full year of blogging!
Here is a photo of Mrs. Carroll’s Young Five’s Class. They are reading Where The Wild Things Are, and they sure look wild here.
Take time to visit ARCHIVES from the last year’s worth of lessons, teaching ideas, photos and more, it is like a trip down memory lane.
We are now in Health for the rest of the year and are saying good-bye to the computer lab.
Health: 5, 4,3rd grades are going to play a board game called P.U.,Who Smells? Y.O.U. It is a fun game about learning how to control your body odor.
2nd Grade: The students will be making a business card with positive qualities about themselves on it, and what good things they have to offer. This is hard for children to think of what they are good at and even tough for adults some times. It is a lesson in promoting yourself and having self-confidence.
1st Grade: The students will be creating a “Coat of Arms” about themselves. They will use drawing, photos from magazines and more to show who they are.
K-classes: These students will creat a paper about how/when they feel healthy and when they do not. They also have been learning about animal tracks in the snow.
Here are a few cool websites to check out. Take a walk anywhere before the snow is gone and find what animals have been around when you have not!
This site has an interactive game to match animals to their tracks.
This is a great color document that has many animals to match their tracks and the
answers are at the bottom. Bonus for the parents!
PE-Basketball skills are still being introduced and we will focus on shooting and games. The Beechnau students start play soon and it is a great opportunity for fun, exercise and to be part of team.
