Thanksgiving

With my third and fourth grade students, we took an amazing virtual field trip to Plimouth (that's really how they spell it!) Plantation.  It was very well done. Here is the link to Scholastic's website for it: 


Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a day time to give thanks for all we are given. It's also day for some turkey fun and feasting. With my students I watched a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving...my favorite!!! And then had a Snoopy style feast. Of course I am the biggest turkey of all!!!

More AOC pictures. ..

AOC- Academic Opportunity Center

Once again thus year we are having our after school homework club. We call it AOC. I couldn't do it without the help of the Fort Morgan High School clubs. I'd like to give a shout out to these students. Thank you for all your help.

Veterans Day

I know Veterans Day was a couple weeks ago, but it's never to late time thank our troops for providing us with the freedoms we have today. My students enjoyed making these soldiers and writing about the importance of them. We salute you!

October Door and Halloween Costumes

This was the front and back of my door. The mummy and Frank were super spooky and just a little bit cute.
Also our Halloween parade was fun. We were quite a witchy bunch.

Dia de los Muertos Part Dos

I also want to give a shout out and a huge Muchas Gracias to mi amiga  Christina Ordaz. She is such a doll...she made some amazing homemade Pan de Muerto. That reminds me...one of my little second grade boys was eating it and said "I don't know why they call it dead bread. It doesn't taste dead, it tastes pretty good to me." It made me giggle and just goes to show that sometimes kids have a lot to learn even in their native language.

Here is our altar.

Where have I been?!?!

I've been here...just a little overwhelmed. I've taken on time extra duties to help out and the word swamped comes to mind. I haven't had the chance to finish any new products...start yes...finish NO. Yikes.

It's all good though. I have several new students this year and the levels of English vary. It is so exciting and challenging at the same time. I will share some photos of my classroom since the beginning of the school year...
