October 28 - November 1, 2019

We had such a fun week getting ready for Halloween!

We started the week with a fabulous picnic lunch outside with the whole school. 

We completed our first directed drawing activity. Directed drawings are ways for students to create their own artwork by following step-by-step instructions. They help to strengthen students' confidence and listening skills while encouraging students to pay close attention to details. Check out our Franken-Buddies for Halloween!

In STEAM, we worked together to create skeletons!

We made Halloween necklaces - great fine motor skill practice!

In physical education class, we ran like ghosts! We had to run really fast to keep our scarves on our bodies!

Then, we walked like black cats to get in line.

We had a "spook-tacular" time at the Halloween Mission Party!

Hope you all had a wonderful Halloween!

Looking ahead:
  • Show and Tell will be on Tuesday, November 5. The topic will be something that begins with /r/.
  • Please help support the 8th grade's trip to Washington. Yankee Candle catalogs were sent home. All orders are due by Friday, November 8.

We also had a great time celebrating
Caroline's birthday!  Thank you for the apples,
caramel dip, and apple cider!

Have a great weekend!
