Winona Lake Fire Department Visits our Class!!

We were so lucky to have the Winona Lake Fire Department visit our classroom. The firemen talked to the class about having a fire safety plan at home. Thank you, Mr. Oler!! We had so much fun!!

Each child had the opportunity to use the fire hose and spray water at a small "house"!

Everyone got to sit in the firetruck!

Field Trip to the Apple Orchard!

We had a PERFECT fall day to be at the orchard. Each student got to pick three apples, one gourd, and enjoy some fresh apple cider. We also went on a hay ride. It was a great day!!

The students learned that you can shine an apple by giving "apple backrubs". This is the apple backrub train. :)

Enjoying our Red Delicious apples!

Learning how to properly pick an apple!

Leaf Observation Day!

Today, we took a very windy leaf walk out on the fitness trail!! Each student collected two leaves and then worked with a partner and made observations. The students had to determine the size of the leaf and whether the edges of the leaves were jagged or smooth. Everyone did a wonderful job!
