I have been very delinquent in keeping up our blog, so I thought I would post some pictures of some of our recent activities in class!
We’ve done a number of art activities, but one has been working on contour drawing. The students used a stool as a first subject:
Our Book Tasting Event with Ms Ziegler’s class was a wonderful success!
We visited Stone Hall Castle to kick off our castle-building project!

So many exciting things happening! Looking forward to meeting with everyone this week for our Student Conferences.

The key to success in life and school is GRIT!

Arrrrr! September 19 be International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Crawford’s Crew had a fun day of bein’ pirates and takin’ risks!
We learned pirate lingo and gave some famous nursery rhymes “Pirattitude.”
We used place value to determine our Math Pirate Names and learned about the science of sight and how being a pirate with an eye-patch might have made both fighting and navigation difficult!
It was a fun day! I am so thankful for the kids who were willing to take a risk with me today – dress up, act silly, travel with a motley crew and explore unchartered territory!
