Native Americans

This week we got to learn about the first people who lived in our country.  We learned about how they lived, ate, dressed, and had fun.  We got to make our own Native American names, headbands, and sand art to show what we learned!  Next week we will get to learn about how the Native Americans helped the pilgrims when they came over and how that led to the first Thanksgiving!

Thank you Two Moms in the Raw

This week we have healthy treats from Two Moms in the Raw (!  They are delicious raw granola bars with none of the bad stuff!  They are also made right here in Colorado (Lafayette to be exact!) We have different flavors to try for each day this week!  You can get their bars at King Soopers, Lucky's, and Sprouts!  Here is what the kids have to say:

Logan- I like these so much!  Thank you!
Addy- Thank you so much!  I really like the blueberry!
Colten- They look and taste so good.  I want to eat a lot in my mouth!
Connor- Thank you for bringing those to our school!
Cooper- Thank you!  Those were so good and I really like the berries!

Public Speaking

We learned how to use a podium today and speak to a group as we shared our scientific observations on the animal we observed!  The kids are natural speakers and loved being able to use a podium their size!

Thank you Education Foundation!

The Education Foundation for the St. Vrain Valley ( hands out thousands of dollars in grants to St. Vrain schools each year.  This year I applied or a grant for "whooshing speakers".  Our old speakers were not reliable for movement time (probably the most important part of our day) so we needed new ones.  I found these incredibly awesome ones that lit up and "danced" to the sound thinking they would also be a good behavioral intervention for kiddos who needed a little help focusing.  The kids all love them and our new problem is who gets to stand the closest to them!!
