U.S Symbols

In Social Studies, we are studying U.S. Symbols. So far, we have studied The Statue of Liberty, the Flag, The Liberty Bell, and the Bald Eagle. The students have had such a great time learning facts about these symbols of our country! These are the bald eagles that the students made. We have also been watching a live nest cam from an eagle's nest. We are hoping the eggs hatch soon! If you would like to watch the video at home, click on the link at home! The Liberty Bell!

St. Patrick's Day Fun!!

Oh no!! Miss Small's class was attacked by a sneaky leprechaun! The room was a MESS!!

This student was stunned by the mess that he saw! :)

After we cleaned up, we went on a search for that sneaky little guy!

Later, in math class, we celebrated with "Leprechaun Math". The students sorted the marshmallows in Lucky Charms cereal and then graphed the results. We had a fun day!!
