Choral Reading

In Poetry Workshop we learned that the word "chorally" means more than one voice. We found poems we liked with our groups and decided how we were going to read them with each other. Some parts we read together, others we took turns. We practiced and then presented to the class! Enjoy the videos! :)

See you tomorrow for pajama day!

Valentine's Day

We had a blast on Thursday for Valentine's Day! We did a Valentine's Day scavenger hunt, played a multiplication game called You Stole My Heart, had free choice game time in the computer lab, and then opened our Valentines and played games in the afternoon.
We had a Happy Heart Day! <3

News and Events....

Check out the right side of the blog- I have added a section for upcoming dates and events. I'll be changing and updating it as the rest of the year progresses. I thought it would be nice to have there so you could check and see when things are happening at any time instead of waiting for a note to come home from me, OR go searching for your school calendar! 
A couple things to take note of.....

* Book orders are due tomorrow!
* The boys hockey team will be here tomorrow for Prowler Pride! 
* Conferences are on Monday from 4-8 and Thursday from 8-8. I can't wait to chat with you! :)
* Wednesday is pajama day at Challenger
* There is No School on Thursday and Friday- It is going to be a short, but busy week!

Happy Valentine's Day! Check back for pictures from our fun day soon!

Who's who??

When studying light in science, we made these silhouettes of each of us. I mixed them all up, numbered them, and we had to guess who was who. It was so much fun! Some of them we could tell who they were right away, and others were really hard!

At Home Reading

Parents- check out this awesome picture I found about how important reading at home is. Just a minimum of 20 minutes a night makes SO MUCH of a difference!!

Keep them reading!

Party time! Woo hoo!

On Friday afternoon we had a celebration!! We set a goal of reaching 5,000 page views on our blog and we made it! We had ice cream sandwiches and watched a movie! We recently finished reading the book Ramona and Beezus so that's the movie we watched. It was a great afternoon. Thank you SO much to everyone that checks our blog on a regular basis. We love being able to share with you what we do at school every day!! Thanks a million, it really does mean so much to us!! :)
