Halloween in the Gym

Halloween is my absolute FAVORITE holiday (as any child in our classroom can tell you!). However, I believe (truly, truly believe) that the Gym Teachers love Halloween more than I do! They decorated the gym beyond even my wildest imagination! Not only did they put in a lot of time and effort, but my sources say that they had a couple of ghouls and goblins helping them out. Check out just some of the amazing stations your child was able to participate in last week. Go ahead, ask them what their favorite station was. (Mine was the moving spider on the web.)

The Seasons They Are A-Changing

As scientists in our classroom, one of the main things we focus on is the power of observation -- what is it that we 'really' see?

During the month of October we 'observed' the tree outside the classroom window and discussed the changes that were occurring.

We documented the changes with a picture a day, which is embedded below.
