Guided Discovery of the Bus

Mrs. McCleary, our school guidance counselor, came in today to talk about the expectations while riding the bus. We talked about staying safely in our seat, being in control of our body, using a level 1 or 2 voice (whisper or quiet talk), being kind to other students on the bus, and waiting patiently for their stop.  Once we talked about the expectations, we took a quick bus ride around the block. The kids did a fantastic job!  Here are some pictures from our adventure!

Welcome Back to School!

I hope that everyone has had a fabulous summer!! I've been busy swimming, reading, and spending as much time with my daughters as I can.  However, school starts in just a few short weeks so I've been busy getting Room 9 ready for everyone!! I've unpacked boxes, cleaned furniture, organized supplies, decorated bulletin boards, and made our classroom feel warm and welcoming.  I  can't wait to see everyone at the UMS Open House for first and second graders on Tuesday, August 27th from 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.  This will be a really informal event for you to come and see our classroom, find your seat, and see old friends!  Enjoy the last few weeks of summer and I'll see you soon! I'm so excited for a great year! 

Your cubby is ready!

Our hallway is getting colorful!

The book nook is almost ready for you!

Bulletin boards are being put up for you!

Butterfly Release Day

We have been learning all about life cycles with brassica plants and painted lady butterflies.  We started with small caterpillars that wove their own chrysalis and then emerged as butterflies! Today was the day we released them into nature! It was so great to see each stage of their life cycle!
