Amazing Art Wall

Hello Families,

As you may or may not know, we have many artists in our classroom. Recently, one of them got to share an entire wall of art he's been working on this year. It happened to be the day he added his 101st piece of artwork to the wall!

Here is Carlos showing off some of what he can do for our class. What an amazing experience!

(My favorite is still the portrait of me that is hanging in our classroom!)

Take care,
Todd


Bike Train 2017

Hello!

Wow, what an amazing day for the Bike Train last Friday! I didn't have anyone taking "action" photos or videos this year, so the best I could do was to document evidence of the numbers of riders we had.

Thank you so much to our Fearless Leader Principal Betsy Lane, for making this possible every year, Superintendent Andrew Dolloff, for allowing us to proceed and showing that Yarmouth Schools are invested in a healthy community from the top down, and Lenora Felker of Healthy Kids, Happy Kids, for volunteering her time to promote safety and teach happy biking.

And, of course, to all the parents and students who join us in this endeavor every year! Thanks for making Yarmouth a safe, fun place to ride bikes.

Take care,
Todd

Back from vacation






This week's blog brought to you by Gloria and Tess

This week in math we are doing fraction volumes and multiplication/division fact families.

This week in writing we are working on our informational books. Most of us are almost finished, while others are working on chapters 1-4. 

This week in reading we continue to read biographies. Mr Abbott started reading The Willouhbys at snack time.







This week in science we are doing Genius Hour. In Genius Hour we are researching about our own chosen topics. Gloria is learning about the formation of stars in space while Tess is learning about how planets and stars are forming.






In other news we celebrated Jude's birthday with a dance party. 

We will soon be starting a project called the Wax Museum where we will dress up as our chosen person who we will learn about through reading a biography. 



Jude Birthday

Happy Birthday, Jude!
