Watermelon Day!

To celebrate the letter W, we had watermelon!  I told all of the kids I would send them home early and have all of the watermelon to myself but they weren't going for it!  We had a great time eating it, and we had a special visitor...ELLIE!

Ice cream day!

The kids got to bring their favorite toppings and I brought the ice cream and we had a yummy ice cream party!  Then we ran laps around the class! :-)

Cooking Club- ice cream

We made ice cream in a bag today for cooking club with Mrs. Jayme and Mr. Rich!  It was so fun and SOOOO cold!  It turned out great and we loved eating it with coconut and sprinkles after the races!

Race day!

Who is the fastest in the class!  We had a race day to see!  We had a bracket that put two kids up against each other until 1 came out as the fastest in both the boy category, girls category, and whole class category!  We have some fast kids!!  Sadly I didn't get any pictures of the event, only the closing ceremonies!

Connor and Jasper tied as the fastest boy!  Ava and Addy tied as the fastest girl!  Then when all 4 of them raced, Connor came out ahead as the fastest kid in our class!

A surprise party!

The kids planned a surprise birthday party for our wonderful room mom, Mrs. Jayme!  They had a banner committee, a ceiling decoration committee, and a door decoration committee.  We also had decision makers decide how we would surprise her (jump out from behind the desks) and what we would throw (confetti)!  She was so surprised!

The door decorations!

Getting ready to shout surprise!

Sorry this one is not all of the way edited!

We have had quite the learning experience with our butterflies this year.  We got baby caterpillars and watched them eat and eat and grow and grow.  Once they formed their chrysalises we moved them to their net an awaited the day when they would emerge!   At one point though, they got knocked over and 3 of the 5 chrysalises fell off.  Thanks to Ms. Stahly, we were able to talk to the experts at the Butterfly Pavilion to come up with a plan that could maybe save them.  And it worked!  We have 4 healthy butterflies.  Sadly one did not make it but we learned that we could bury it in the soil and it would provide important nutrients to the ground!  We also got to Facetime the scientists at the Butterfly Pavilion today and ask questions that we had about butterflies!  It was so fun!

Ladybug Park

L day brought us to Ladybug Park!  It was a beautiful day and the kids had so much fun!  The kids also enjoyed the water fountain that still hadn't been turned back on yet and just sprayed random spurts of water out!

Lunchroom fun!

We are almost first graders so we got to experience what it is like in the lunchroom!!The kids did awesome!

Kickball Day

To celebrate the letter K we played kickball!  We learned how to play the game then had a great round!  The kids loved it and they were quite good!  And we had 4 kiddos in the "home run club!"
