Field Day 2011

A little late...but worth the wait!  My students had a blast at Field Day.  Our PE Team is awesome and every year they go above and beyond organizing a day where the kids can have fun doing physical activity!  This years theme was centered around WII games.

Earth Day Quilt

These are pictures from 2 years ago (as my class is doing the activity today).

We made a paper quilt using words from Louis Armstrong's song "What a Wonderful World." I loved this idea!  I played the song and turned off the lights.  The kids listened to the song. We talked about imagery and painting pictures in your head. Then, I passed out the squares. I typed the lyrics on each page and the kids illustrated. I can't wait to do it again today and see how my class "Imagines" the lyrics.

Courage: Mirror Mirror on the Wall....

Our class has been reading stories about Courage in our Imagine It! Books.    After discussing many stories and ways different characters have shown courage, they wrote their own stories of courage.  I think they did a great job and I was very pleased with how neat they turned out:)
