Diamond D Ranch

What a great field trip.  We had so much fun learning about animals, feeding them, taking a tractor ride, walking the trails, and even riding the horses.  Here are some highlights from the day.

What a great day we had celebrating Kevin Henkes!  We enjoyed reading and discussing his books over the last  weeks.  The kids had a great time connecting with his characters. The day was full of fun crafts and activities.

It's Election Day

Today we too had an election in our class. Since we are first graders our students voted for characters from a book as opposed to the real election. There were 2 characters from 2 different books we read in class. Students could choose Duck from "Duck for President" or Grace from "Grace for President". Each student had a voters registration card, receives a ballot, and got a sticker that said "I voted"". Make sure you ask who your child voted for.

Thank You California Pizza!

Thank you to California Pizza and Donovan from our class. Donovan's aunt works at California pizza. The company chose to sponsor our classroom with a donation of supplies from Staples. Not only did we receive $250 worth of stuff for our classroom but were also treated to a pizza lunch. We are very thankful!
