We’re back! 2023!

January 4, 2023 | Rebekah Lowe

We are back!  It’s 2023.  We hope you enjoy this picture walk through of our first day back at school!

Students arrived at school, eager and excited to share about their Christmas break!  They did such fun things, like traveling to a different country or spending a day building a Lego set.

After sharing and worship, we had math.  Second graders learned a new game called Close to 20.  Then, they got to work in their workbooks and went onto IXL.

Third graders reviewed rounding 3-digit numbers to the nearest 10 and 100. They played a game using their skills, and then they worked on IXL.

After math, students got to eat their snack and share more about their break.

Following snack, we played a game of Four Corners and then 6 Corners!

Next, second graders learned and built compound words.

They also wrote their opinion on the prompt: “Would you rather have 1 big present or 3 small presents?”

Third graders reviewed the five ways to form and write the past-tense forms of regular present tense verbs. Then they used each of the rules to write the past-tense forms of 10 verbs.

Students had indoor park because of the rain, so we got to play with Legos, dominoes, and draw!

We read for DEAR after lunch.

After Spanish/Music, students started a new unit on the Cherokees.  We watched a video to introduce Cherokee people and their culture.

Following the video, each person wrote down 4 things they heard from the video about the Cherokees.

The class went to PE and began a new unit on basketball!

After hearing directions, students dribbled and passed a basketball to a friend.

At the end of the day, we came together for a closing meeting before we dismissed.  What a busy and fun day!
