The Snowman Construction Company

The students worked together in groups to design a Snowman of their choice based on a certain amount of money they were given. They had to add the items to make sure they didn't go over their allotted amount of money. They really enjoyed this activity, and their snowman creations turned out very well. They are posted in the hallway if you are interested in reading more about this activity!

Black History Month Research

To help celebrate Black History Month, the children have been researching famous Black Americans. We've had a wide array of topics being researched, and the children are really enjoying completing their biography posters. They will be presenting their biography posters soon, so stay tuned to hear more about it. Be sure to ask your child about the famous person he/she is researching, and ask them to explain some interesting facts as well!
