A new school year! My class was split into two classes this year so four of my former students are now across the hall in a new class. I also had two graduate to middle school which leaves me with five students starting off the year. Luckily we will be going to lunch and specials with the other class so I still get to see my “old babies” at least twice a day.
Here are my current students on the first day of the 2017-18 school year!
The last two years I have been very VERY bad about updating the class blog. As a matter of fact I’m not sure I posted at all last year. I had a very large class, a new baby, and not enough time.
This year my daughter is two so I’ve adjusted to the “working mom” thing, my class has only five students and I have two paraprofessionals, so my goal is to get back to regular posts on the blog … so stay tuned!
We always cook a feast for Thanksgiving in Dr Mays’s class. This year Dr Mays was out sick on the last day before break so we had to postpone our feast until after Thanksgiving but it was still delicious!!
This month’s graphing data was about where we would like to use maps! We have read stories about characters who used a map at the zoo, at a fair and at a farm. So we asked “Where would you like to use a map?”, made a pictograph, sorted the answers, then put them on a graph and then colored the graph! We even analyzed the data to answer questions about the graph. (Most of our class would rather use a map at the fair, if you were wondering).
We read a book called “To The Zoo” about two girls (Sue and Zuri) who go to the zoo and use a map to find the different animals. We found the animals on the map too!
Today in Art, Mrs. Foster read us the book “Pete the Cat and his Four Groovy Buttons”. Then we got to help Pete put the buttons back on his coat!! She even featured our work on her art blog!!
We have a new friend in our class and are so excited to have Lili join us! We needed another girl 🙂
