Back to School on January 3rd!!
We had a blast today celebrating the book The Polar Express by. Chris Van Allsburg. We began the day by reading the book and the students visualized a picture in their heads of a picture that was described in the story. They drew a picture on a black sheet of paper with chalk and presented the pictures to the class. We re-read the book and then everyone took an AR test on it. We made multiplication bells with the facts that they were struggling with and read Twas' the Night Before Christmas. They then wrote an imaginary story as if they were the boy in the story. We drank yummy hot chocolate from a recipe that Mrs. Claus herself sent me. We created simile stars and ate pizza for lunch. We ended the day watching the movie The Polar Express. The students also did a artist walk of the heritage projects. These were awesome! I was so impressed with all of the projects. It was great to learn about everyone's heritage. Don't forget that we come back to school on January 3rd, 2011. See you then. Have your child check out the lunar eclipse on http://video.foxnews.com/v/4469887/total-lunar-eclipse/. Enjoy!
