To start off our Halloween fun, we did an “Unlock the Box” activity in math. Students had a series of math problems that built on one another that solved clues. The clues led the students to a missing key that unlocked a box of prizes. Everyone worked very hard and had a great time!

Party Fun!!

In our class, we have the 6 P’s that we focus on: prompt, polite, patient, productive, prepared, and positive. Today, each student chose one “P” that they would like to improve on and wrote a goal on how to achieve that.

Students work together on a map skills booklet.

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.

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!

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!

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!
