Literacy Breakfast

This morning we had a wonderful literacy breakfast!  Thank you so much to all of the parents and grandparents who attended this event! Each child was given a copy of a winter animals book and enjoyed breakfast in the classroom.  It was so exciting to have our families and teachers here to spend time with us!

Valentine's Day Fun

Today we celebrated Valentine's Day together.  We had such a wonderful time!  We read lots of great stories about friendship and love.  The children decided that they wanted to sing songs and go around the circle and say something special about the person next to them.  It was so cute!  We exchanged valentines and had a few treats this afternoon.  This is such a loving class!

Looking at our valentines!

100th Day of School!!

Today we celebrated the 100th day of school! It is a huge milestone in the primary grades.  We talked about how we have become 100 days smarter since the first day of school.  One thing that we did was to find out how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop. We also made fruit loop necklaces with 100 loops!! This was a delicious and fun way to practice counting!

Our Trip To The Post Office

Today we went on a walking field trip to the West Brattleboro Post Office.  The weather was snowy, but the sidewalks were plowed so we were able to make it!  The Kindergartners each wrote a letter to their families, purchased a stamp from Holly and mailed it.  We got to cancel our stamp, get a tour of the post office and helped Holly wait on the customers.  It was a great time!
