Thank you to everyone for making our Stone Soup celebration such a success! They worked so hard on organizing the event (invitations, hats, ingredients, etc) and the play and it was a great afternoon! The Kindergarteners have been so looking forward to this day and I think everyone had a great time! Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Recently we finished up our first module in the Engage NY math program. The focus of the unit was about the number 1-10. The students learned to not only identify and write those numbers, but to determine what is one more or one less than a specific number. We also worked a lot on making combinations of numbers. Here are a few pictures of our culminating activity.
We had a fabulous trip to the West Brattleboro Fire Station earlier this month! The firefighter greeted us at the door and showed us all of the supplies on the truck. He also talked to us about fire safety. He told the kids that if they were ever trapped in their bedrooms during a fire, they should open their window and throw stuffed animals down and yell. I thought that was a great tip! He put on his gear to show the kids what he looked like with his gear on so that if they ever saw a firefighter during a fire they would not be scared. The highlight of the trip was the opportunity to sit in a fire truck. We had a great time!
