Field trip to Pacific Science Center!

Our focus this year: Growth! We started by making a brain flip with all the things we are good at. Next, we will be talking about the things we aren’t good at, YET!

Today we learned about constellations! We identified some constellations in the night sky, then created our own constellation that we wish we saw in the sky. Building the constellation was the final step! With marshmallows and toothpicks, the students got to work. They are so creative!

Place Value Jack-O-Lanterns! Students had a great time creating a Jack-O-Lantern, then practiced their place value skills by adding up how much the pumpkin was worth.

Math is instantly better with dice and a fun seat!

We started opinion writing! Students had the opportunity to share their thoughts on a sticky note and use each other’s ideas as reasons to support their opinion.

After a long day of hard work, some reading time with friends was much needed!

We loved sharing our All About Me bags!

Before we start Walk-to-Math next week, we’re brushing up on our Place Value skills!


Students worked on creating a board game! The game cards have questions comparing numbers, ordering numbers, and value of numbers. Students also had the option to write a number riddle, write about the importance of zero, or write a number riddle. Students loved making a mystery picture puzzle, as well!

The “Build a Tower” station was a favorite! Students built a tall tower, then counted up the value of the tower!

Friday, September 6th

Students worked together in groups to brainstorm ways to make sure All Are Welcome on the playground, in the classroom, in the cafeteria, and on the playground!
