Book Buddies with Mrs. Parnell's Kindergarten Class


In honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday, Mr. Mussleman read Bartholomew and the Oobleck  with the third graders.  Then we worked with a partner to explore oobleck.  We had to decide if oobleck is a solid or a liquid.  My students had some great reasons to support their answer.  This was a fun way to celebrate Dr. Seuss.

My Talented Class

For a few weeks, we have been talking about our talents and struggles in and out of school.  Sometimes my students feel frustrated as a learner because learning is hard.  We need frequent reminders that everyone has struggles, but to always remember our talents (strengths).  I read a book called Tom's Special Talents and then I asked everyone to think of their special talent and then something in school that is difficult.  Our talents are baking, writing, hair, sports (baseball, hockey).  The things we need to work hard at are spelling, math, writing, and social studies.  My students thought it was interesting to see that other kids had similar difficulties.
