A Visit From the Fire Fighters!

To support our instruction on Fire Safety, the Plover Fire Fighters spent some time with us!  They read a wonderful story called No Dragons for Tea and then showed us what a fire fighter looks like when he puts on all his gear!  We are so thankful they came to visit!

Fun with Fall Leaves!

You may have seen our Leaf Experiment paper come home.  Here is a peek at what that looked like in the classroom!  We looked at the leaf details and talked about different types of leaves, we measured height with unifix cubes, we measured area with pennies, we even counted how long it took our leaf to twirl down to the ground as if it were falling from a tree.  As always, we loved this hand on learning!

Pumpkin Fun in Library!

Here is a peek at what we have been up to with Mrs. Peterson and Mrs. Cychosz in library!  Mrs. Peterson read the book Spookley, the Square Pumpkin and then the class celebrated how differences make us special by making their jack-o-lantern hats with their own special touches!  I think it's obvious that everyone had a great time!

We had so much fun exploring and learning about APPLES!  Thank you for your help in preparing for our lessons by sharing an apple with us!  We spent  time measuring, weighing, examining, counting, creating AND (of course) TASTING!  Enjoy a peek at our very delicious week!
