We also did 5 Random Acts of Kindness(RAK) this week- hopefully these acts of kindness are being done at home as well.

Our class has raised $54.20 for the See a Need- Fill a Need campaign so far.

Stay warm this weekend and cross your fingers that the weather improves for next week! Inside recess and no gym don’t go well together. 🙂



2D Shapes

Today we finished up our study of the 2D or flat shapes.

We did shape stations in math. There were 3 stations for us to visit.

  1. Geo boards– where we used elastic bands to create shapes.
  2. I pads– where we used a Geo-board app to create cool pictures.
  3. Our math booklets– where we used dot pattern paper to draw different shapes and pictures.

Next week we will learn about the 3D or solid shapes.


Congratulations to these students that earned their Book It Pizza coupon for the month of November. They read at least 15 days!

YAY to Jaida K, Jason, Callie, Eabha, Brooklyn, Brennan, Keaton, Carlee, Sachi, Matt, Barrett and Nevaeh!

The reading goal for December is to read at least 15 days too!

Happy Reading!

What’s in the basket?

Ask your child to explain what this basket of presents is.


We are excited to decorate the classroom for Christmas this week.

Starting next week our classroom will be doing a Random Act of Kindness each day. Christmas is about so much more than presents and Santa, and I believe it is important to practice doing things for others. We will keep you updated on the blog or on Fresh Grade what we are up to.

Happy Holidays!!
