This Friday was our Valentine’s Day party and we had great time!  We started out by handing out the rest of our Valentines for the end of the day and read Valentine’s Day books.  We then colored and completed books called I Love…

For shared reading and writing we read the book Will You Be My Valentine and then made a list of Valentine’s Day words.  We picked our favorite words and made Valentine’s Day mobiles.

For Math we enjoyed candy hearts math centers.  We graphed with our hearts, sorted them by colors, and estimating the number of candy hearts that can fill a bigger heart.  We also enjoyed Valentine’s Day snacks.

For science we used alca-zeltzer tabs and water to make candy hearts dance.  Students learned how to make hypothesis on simple science experiments.  They guessed what they believed would happened to the hearts.

We read the story “Thanksgiving Day” and learned about the very first Thanksgiving.  Then we cut and glued pictures that illustrated the first thanksgiving in the correct sequence.  For our art and writing we made TLC art pilgrims and wrote about what we were thankful for.

It was another fantastic party at the K-1 All-Stars class!  Everyone dressed up in their costumes, we combined with the Preschool class and 2nd/3rd grade class to have a costume parade throughout the school.  Then we got together in the gym for a picture.

When we returned to the classroom we had fun carving and scooping out the insides of two pumpkins.  Pumpkins are very hard to come by out here in Shaktoolik so they really enjoyed digging their hands into the pumpkins guts and drawing designs to create jack-o’lanterns!

After the jack-o’lanterns were carved the all-stars enjoyed Halloween arts and crafts.  They created either a paper bag puppet or a paper plate mask.
