Thoughts, Love, and Prayers!

My heart is breaking and tears are streaming down my face as I type.  I can't stop thinking about the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.  I hugged each of my 21 students a bit tighter this afternoon.  My thoughts and prayers are with those in Newtown and will continue to be for a long time!

Happy 50th Day of School!

We celebrated the 50th day of school by learning about past and present.
We went back in time to the 1950s!
We dressed like people dressed in the 50s.
The boys rolled up their pants.
Saddle oxfords!
Poodle skirts!
We made root beer floats!
So much more fun to drink out of a straw!
 We made a "Do you like root beer floats?" graph.  However, their wasn't much to graph since everyone LOVED root beer floats!
 We wrote about the number 50.
 We made 50 tally marks.
 We skip counted by 2's to 50.
 We skip counted by 5's to 50.
We wrote number sentences to show 50.  We are so smart!  What a fun day!

Election Day, 1st Grade Style!

As you know, the United States re-elected President Obama in the Presidential election earlier this month.  We held a class election too!  Our two candidates, or more appropriately "candy"dates, were M&Ms and Skittles!
 We worked as campaign volunteers.
 Caden is making a campaign poster for M&Ms!
 "Vote for M&Ms!  They are magical delicious!"
 "Vote for Skittles!"
 "Marvelous M&Ms, Red, Green, Blue!"
 Campaign Rally!
Vote for M&Ms!
 Vote for Skittles!
 We planned speeches for our favorite candidate!
We wrote speeches! 
 We gave our speeches!
 Vote for M&Ms!
 Vote for Skittles!
 After a long campaign, the voting precinct opened!
 We registered to vote!
 We had to show our voter registration card in order to vote!
 Daron cast his ballot!
 Dennis cast his ballot! 
 Hannah cast her ballot!
 Hayden cast her ballot!
 We voted!
 We voted too! 
Everybody voted!
 We tallied all of the votes!
 We graphed the results!  
Drum roll, please!  
And, the winner is...
 We celebrated!
 We were good sports even if we wanted M&Ms to win!
 So happy that our candidate won!
Congratulations, Skittles!!!
