What a lovely time we had when the mayor came to visit with our class last Friday. She was so patient with all of our questions and told the kids a lot about being the mayor and her role in the community. Thank you Mayor Handshoe for taking the time to come out to school and talk to us today! We appreciate all you do for us in the community!

So I used my artsy craftiness to make Miss Panelli a candy jar for a going away present from the class. It turned out pretty good if I do say so myself! I had all the kids put their fingerprint (gumball) on the bottom of the jar. Their name is written next to their gumball. It will be something she can take to her future classroom to always remember the group of kids that she worked with during her student teaching! We will miss her a lot! Good luck Miss Panelli!

The Caterpillars are growing and moving along in this picture.
Here the caterpillars have started to move into their "J" shape. This is where they will make their chrysalis.
All of them are currently in the chrysalis state and we are waiting on them to hatch!
Kids were able to show their knowledge and understanding of area and perimeter this week. They were able to do this by making colleges of different areas and perimeters. Students were to choose a card out of the box and then show their understanding by creating what the card said. Each and everyone of them did a GREAT job!

Today in JA Mrs. Carpenter talked to the kids about voting. The kids had a make believe scenario presented to them. They walked through a decision tree about the pros and cons of the three ideas presented and then they were given the opportunity to vote. Each student then got to wear a I Voted sticker. Unfortunately we did have some kids that marked more than one item on their ballot so it didn't count in the voting process.
