Return to the blog!

Well! It has been 2.5 weeks since I last made a post. I apologize to the loyal readers out there for this lack of updating! I was at a conference for 2 days in Bend with Mr. Bova and Mrs. Stoneberg. We learned a lot at that conference about how to use our iPads, creating better assessments so we know what our students are learning, and being respectful to our peers. It was a great learning opportunity for all three of us.

That being said, class is going VERY WELL! We are having so much success in here that I am not quite sure what to do with myself! Students have been working extremely hard in class, and we are nearly finished with Topic 4 in math. We have also been doing a lot of writing and reading. We are having review week this week and next in reading class, so there are no spelling words or tests.

There is no school on Friday so that I can do report cards for everyone. Remember that report cards are just a reflection of what students know, and are used as a tool for teachers and parents to be on the same page about their student's learning. Next week on Wednesday and Thursday are conferences, and I am excited to share everyone's progress with their parents.

OKAY! EXCITING NEWS TIME!

We took a field trip to the pumpkin patch 2 weeks ago, and I have a great picture of Jayden to share with you. She is picking out a gourd!

 Here are some students having fun learning how to do Cat's Cradle!
 Steven enjoyed the "Hayflower." It was a scale model of the Mayflower made out of hay!
 Here are Zane and Jack also enjoying the Hayflower.
I made a joke about how I should take these students back to class with us. It didn't go over very well. Ha!

The next big news is that our class has been doing so well in all locations around the school, that we won the most awesome award at our Billie Spirit assembly, THE GOLDEN APPLE!!!

Also, Mrs. Stoneberg gives out an award each month to a student who is doing great work in class. Our Principal's Award winner this month was Hannah! She has been working hard and always shows great Billie Spirit! Congratulations Hannah!
