Mr. McTamney came today and visited the Kindergarten and First grade classrooms. He discussed what the Coast Guard branch was- how it worked- and the different jobs. The students watched some clips about water safety and received their very own U.S.C.G. coloring books! A BIG thank you to Mr. McTamney!!! Thank you for your dedication and serving our country!
Today the entire school participated in a great event honoring our veterans who served our country. Each class shared out a song, poem, shared writing, as well as crafted special cards and poppies!
Take a look at our video singing "America the Beautiful"!
First graders have started an enrichment collaboration that ties into literacy, art, and music!
In our reading lessons, we will be focusing on vocabulary and study the unfamiliar words from the song "America the Beautiful". Students begun increasing their vocabulary today, while also increasing their knowledge of U.S. geography and Veteran's Day!
This afternoon Mrs.Sweet and the class had a discussion to activate students' prior knowledge about sights and scenery throughout the United States! Students then sketched their own illustrations from the descriptive language to create a mural!
Check out our blog again tomorrow to find out more about what we will be doing in music with Mrs. Bills!
