Field Trip

The field trip to the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh was amazing!  The Art Studio, The Attic and The Garage always provide so many fun learning activities for the kids.  This year Whoosh! was the temporary exhibit.  It was all about air and it blew us away!  The rockets, parachutes, orange airplane, and especially the whirlwind room captured the attention of all the students.  Thanks to the chaperones and the PTA for making our trip possible.

Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day! Make it a special one!  Our first graders painted jars to use as a vase for Mother's Day flowers.  We adapted Kim Saylor's poem on Saylor's Log (typed on a Stampin' Up scallop die cut) and tied them to the top of jar.  We made cards designed as purses, too.  The kids were so excited!

~ We had also put green tissue paper in the jar ~

Fraction Fun


After practicing fractional parts 1/2, 1/3, and 1/4 - we made our favorite pizzas to share with one, two, or three friends.  Yum!!  We used patterns to trace the pizza and fracional parts. We even remembered to cut a bite!

Easter Treats

Before our spring recess, some Easter treats appeared filled with goodies.  I enjoy spending time stamping and punching paper crafts for school, family and friends.  I'm lucky to have a room parent who is a Stampin' Up consultant. :) It's pretty convenient to order new supplies when I need them.  You can find the
tutorials here!
