Thinking, Creating, Reflecting: Impacting the Future


Intermediate Elementary: Sept. 16 – Sept. 20

  • Each classroom is organizing a raffle basket for the Fall Festival. The theme for our class is “animals” because we are a group of animal lovers. Please contact us if you would like to donate any items for this project. Suggestions: books, kits, small stuffed animals, sketchbooks, puzzles, games. You may send your donations to school with your child or deliver to the office. We would like these items by Thursday, September 26th. Thanks for your help with this important school event!

Typing Club

Using Typing Club to learn Touch Typing keyboard skills. Extra challenge: getting your hands “tucked in” so that you can’t see the keyboard!

Multiplication Cards

Kelli’s Math group is working on separating their multiplication cards into pairs they know and pairs they are still practicing. These will be coming home soon for daily practice and review so that we can eventually move all the cards to the “know” pile!

So much creative energy in this classroom during our class naming project that we'll be revealing soon!

International Day of Peace

We are working with Principal Mary Beth on an original song to share on the International Day of Peace this Friday!

Indoor Recess

We decided to stay in for a rainy indoor recess Thursday and saw such a great variety of activities! From writing/ typing stories, to drawing, building, and checkers, a good time was had by all!

On a side note, we’ve changed our minds about rain gear… please send in rain jackets, and we will store them here. Thanks!

Math Class!

Playing Multiple Turnover during Math. Can your student explain the difference between a factor and a multiple?

IE Fall Festival Basket!

Our classroom’s Fall Festival basket is off to a great start!
Thank you to the Burch’s, Dickey’s and Johnson’s for your donations!
