ELA test practice

Kaelynn came up to the board to guide everyone through what she thought this particular answer would have been given as a grade on the ELA STATE TEST. She said she was looking to see whether the child answered the question and then remembered to give two details to support their answer. They did!

Irish Step Dancing

Hailey shared how to Irish step dance.


Our speakers were Clare, Raquan, and Logan. 

Dance Performance

The children were once again amazing! Today they performed what they've learned about Ireland for their friends in UPK-2.

They made castle shapes, bluffs, and were ships sailing from Ireland to America during the time of the potato famine.

Warm Weather

This afternoon we took our work outside to enjoy the warm temperature. We read an article about, THE MAGICIAN OF THE SEA. Ask your child why the octopus is considered a magician.


This morning we talked about how to tell time to the minute. We also discussed how to distinguish the difference between A.M. hours and P.M. hours. Then the kids were partner to work on some word problems together.

Irish Immigration

After learning in class about the Irish potato famine, students used their bodies in dance to make ships sailing across the Atlantic. Within the ships were Irishmen heading to America in hopes for a better life.

Read Aloud

The kids love to follow along as I read to them from the ever moving novel, WONDER. It's a story that touches people of all ages. 

Story Telling

We had a chance to work with two amazing storytellers last month. Kaelynn and Anthony had an opportunity to participate.


Here's a couple treasured pictures I found that I missed sharing with you.
