Happy Halloween

Friday was packed with Halloween fun! Are you hearing the Halloween songs being sung at home? We had a sing along at school and it was so sweet hearing all different grades enjoy those amazing songs. We then spent an hour playing Halloween-themed math games. Nothing like candy and ghost mini-erasers to make adding and subtracting more fun! After lunch was our class party. Thank you to the many parents who helped prepare items or came to volunteer. A super-big thank you to Anna Given for organizing the party. I didn't get any pictures of the parade since I was in it, sorry!  I enjoyed seeing so many of you at Fall Festival!

Teddy Bear Day

Did your student tell you all about Teddy Bear Day? I hope so but here are some highlights just in case.

In the morning, we made teddy bear headbands as we listened to the Teddy Bear Picnic song.

We introduced our furry friends and made a class book to add to our classroom library.

A crisis was narrowly averted when the missing teddy bear eye was found.

We recited a bear poem and read bear stories.
We wrote about what our teddy bear would do if it came to life...

Today my teddy bear came to life and my teddy bear ate my lunch.
Today my teddy bear (came) to life and snuck up and scared me.

Today my tiger came to life and it was playing on the monkey bars.

At the end of the day, students each got 12 gummy bears to sort by color and then make a bar graph. They then switched papers with their partner and answered questions about the graph.
Of course, their favorite part was getting to eat the gummy bears!

I included a few more pictures in this Picasa web album. If you click on the album you will be brought to Picasa. From there you can order prints using various vendors such as Shutterfly, Snapfish, Walgreens, etc.
