Inside Out - The Movie

We will be watching the movie "Inside Out" on Monday, Dec. 21st with Mrs. Davis' class. It goes along perfectly with our guidance lessons.  Here is a quick note from Mr. Antonicci and Mrs. McCleary.

In guidance, students at UMS have been studying and learning about the zones of regulation.  As a fun way to connect to what they’ve learned so far classroom teachers will be showing the movie ‘Inside Out’ either the Monday or Tuesday before Christmas vacation.  This movie is rated PG.  Please let your child’s classroom teacher know if you have any concerns.  Also, if you are interested in reading the movie synopsis visit this link:

We have started one of my favorite units.....Gingerbread!!  We have been reading lots of Gingerbread folktales and then comparing them using a Venn diagram. We have started a chart in class and we are hoping to build our own foam gingerbread houses next Friday, Dec. 18th. We also have Gingerbread Fred visiting our classroom. Each night, Fred goes home with 2 different students and each student will journal about his/her experience with Fred. This is a magical time of year!

Cupcake Treat

We had a cupcake treat with some very bright green icing on a few weeks ago!! We found that the green icing could be very stubborn to get off and someone commented that we looked like zombies so we had to take a group picture!
