Giving Thanks

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving break. I had so much fun celebrating Thanksgiving during our last two days of school.  It was so refreshing to talk about things we are thankful for.  See the yummy chocolate turkeys that we enjoyed below!                                                                                                                                                                               Our classroom has something very special to be thankful for:  Cullman Church of Christ Youth Group raised money especially for our classroom!  We are going to be able to purchase a projector for our classroom.  I am so excited by this news, and I know it will enhance our students' learning experience.  I am hoping this new equipment will encourage our students to learn several new skills!

Just VOTE!

This week we have spent our time learning about our govenment and voting.  Tuesday we held a classroom election and voted with our own privacy shields and ballots.  We also learned about past presidents and our current president.  We read and used an Alabama sample ballot.  For our Friday activity we had a very special treat:  We were able to vote for all of our activities for the day!  It was also a perfect lead into the upcoming study on PATRIOTISM.  Don't forget that next week is a short week-- we celebrate Veterans' Day on Monday!  I will see everyone's smiling faces on Tuesday. :)

H-A-double L O W double E N (spells Halloween!)

After a week of camping lessons, I failed and forgot to update our blog!  Our camping week was wonderful.  We were able to make a tent and had smores at the end of the week for our treat.

That brings us to this week, we learned all about the holiday at hand, Halloween.  We read 13 Alabama Ghosts and Jeffery, had a Halloween party on Wednesday, and decorated Halloween treat bags.  We had a great week celebrating this unique holiday.  We are preparing for the upcoming election this week by learning all about VOTING.  we will be taking a vote for our classroom.  I will be sure to keep everyone updated!

Have a happy week and don't forget to VOTE on Tuesday!!!
