Are Gianna and Liam working hard, or are they hardly working??? They are both doing a  wonderful job here!

Weekly Poem

This week the students worked on the poem “Cute Little Snowman” for their poetry notebooks. They also made a snowman project to display in our room. Poor little snowman…..just look at his expression!

Mason is doing his best!. Nice work!

Vowel Bats

Students have been working on learning their short and long vowel sounds in a variety of ways. They are also working on applying them to CVC ( Consonant Vowel Consonant) words. Ex. Sun, man, hot.


They listened to the song Vowels Bats and created some Christmas Bats to surround our Grinch door.


Watch them work here!

Draven is working away on his vowels!

Check out these other vowel songs:


Scratch Garden        Andy Pidcock        The Kiboomers     

Bernie the Reindeer

Students learned that everyone has something special about them, but sometimes it takes awhile to find out what it is. They created project for the hall and sang a fun song about Bernie the reindeer who’s nose doesn’t glow, doesn’t like snow, and doesn’t say “Ho,ho, ho!”


Watch them work here!


Listen to the song again, here!

The Grinch

“You’re a mean on Mr. Krokos!” at least that’s what I hear them say. :) Students watched someone illustrate parts of the Grinch and then created their very own. They used kid writing to tell how they would make him grin.
