Construction is Underway!

We have been listening to the ripping and tearing out of the concrete pad that was once home to tetherball and 4-square (at the end of our hallway) all week. Yesterday, the concrete was finally torn out and dirt was being removed. Trucks have been coming and going taking away all the concrete and dirt that is being dug up. The hallway doors between Mrs. Harper and Mrs. Hansell's class are chained so that kids/adults don't use those doors by accident and a fence has been installed all around the construction site. We are all very excited to see construction beginning! A new Kindergarten and Special Ed. will be a great asset to our school.

Learning to regroup is fun!

Monday, January 4, 2010


We're back to school in 2010! I hope everyone had a fantastic break! The kids seemed to be eager to be back but tired. By 2:00 I noticed some heads starting to rest on desks (I have to admit I'm tired today too:)
We are working on addition with regrouping. When I was in school the teachers called this carrying. I felt very confident with this class today as I led them through some activities with blocks to teach the fundamentals of regrouping.
Today we also started reading The Boxcar Children by Gertrude Chandler Warner. This is an exciting chapter book about four children without parents.
This week's spelling words are posted on
