We had a leprechaun visit and he left us a treat to enjoy! We have also been practicing writing our names. This month we got to have our very own "pet shop" at preschool. We have lots of stuffed animals and we have been feeding them and taking care of them. We have also been using our blocks to build houses and cages.
In first grade we took a virtual field trip to see how items were made. The donuts made us extremely hungry. We also drew amazing pictures on the computer. Second grade we took our animal research from our classroom and are creating an animal report slide show. Third through fifth grade we are learning about finance and will run our own lemonade stand in a game. Will we be profitable? Only time will tell. The students at Meadow Brook are amazing and eager to learn new things. It is a blessing to teach them. Ms Vanpatten
So much fun in PE. We've had fun with winter Olympic events, having fun learning fun winter sports, representing countries from around the world and as always having a healthy competition. The Cupid and the leprechaun have visited and left fun clues all around the school for us to find. And we've had a fun March madness basketball activity. Teaching these kids the joys of being healthy and having fun moving your body is so rewarding.
Last month we celebrated Reading Week by reading many books on our own, as a class, and with others throughout the week. Reading week is so much fun and we get to learn about each others' interests. In 5th grade, students found a place of their own in the room and read and shared books. Here are some pictures of us reading!
