Field trip to the UPS Store

Today, we visited the UPS Store on Laurel Street in preparation for our Post Office work next week!  The owners were very generous with their time and space.  We even got to see a UPS truck pull into the loading bay!!  Everyone scanned in a package, and then filled out their very own shipping labels

Second Grade Visitors

Our friends from second grade came back to Room 8 last Friday to read their Small Moment Stories for this year’s First Graders.  They did an awesome job sharing their writing with us.

100th Day of School

100 days of school already!!!  We celebrated with some fun activities in our classroom.  Check out our photos as we tested out how many times we could jump in 100 seconds, how many groups of stickers we could put on our 100th Day Hats, and how many times we had to roll the dice to reach 100.

Field Trip to Whole Foods

We began our Five Senses Unit with a field trip to Whole Foods.  Our wonderful guide, Nick, guided the children through many departments in the store, exploring the color, smell, taste and texture of different foods.  They tasted lemon and pineapple.  Nick showed us some items in the fish department.  He gave the learners soy milk, dried fruits, cheese and lastly a choice of cookie or brownie.  Here are some photos to enjoy.

Winter Celebration

We had a lovely community celebration on Friday morning as we came together for our last day of 2014.  Thank you to everyone who brought delicious food to sustain our learners through the Winter Celebration performances.  What a great job they did!!  Enjoy the photos.
