Freaky Friday


This is Carrie, a 5th grader (Mrs. Thomas had her last year in 4th grade).  TWINS!
We have had a GREAT start to our day!!!  It is so refreshing see the excitement on the faces of all of our students.  I love how happy they are...this is the BEST time of the year!  The kids also look AWESOME in their hats!
We started off the morning with a craft.  We made skeletons out of Q-tips...but don't worry, we tied it into MATH too!

Cayden was the first to win a prize for good behavior and follow instructions!

Here are some pictures from our morning:

Little LoLo with "Bobby"
Skyla with her skeleton and her crazy eyes!

What a crowd!

In Reading, we took our Spelling test and the students did MUCH better than last week!  I can really tell that everyone worked hard on studying their words and the definitions...way to go guys!!!  We really had fun during the Spelling test.  To celebrate the completion of our chapter books, and all our efforts for the week, we watched, "Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin". 

In Math, we worked on a fall themed estimation and measurement activity.  Three pumpkins were displayed in the front of the room and numbered 1, 2, or 3.  Each student made predictions of each pumpkin's height, stem height, diameter, circumference, and weight.  Each pumpkin was one round of the activity.  The student with the most times of having the closest estimates won a three prizes were given out.  Then, we played our "what's the difference?" card game and Whitney was our first to win 3 games so she won a prize as well.  Way to go all on your participation in our fun math activities!
FINALLY, it was time for Lunch and then our PARTY!!!  We had an absolute BLAST bobbing for apples, playing Halloween Bingo, eating delicious snacks (cupcakes, cookies, popcorn, chips, veggies and dip, pretzels, candy, and drinks) and decorating our caramel apples with every scrumptious goodie under the sun (chocolate chips, marshmallows, marshmallow drizzle, chocolate drizzle, caramel, rainbow sprinkles, chocolate sprinkles, nuts, and M&Ms)!!!  Thank you Mrs. Weiler, Mrs. Lyons, Mrs. Lewis, and Mrs. Green for helping with everything and making our party so very wonderful!  Mrs. Weiler, you did an absolutely OUTSTANDING job getting everything together, planning all of our events, and making sure we had an all around amazing are so much fun and well, YOU ROCK!!!
Here are a couple of pictures from our party (more will come later):
Mrs. Thomas's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Banker, sent in Ale-8s (from their hometown of Winchester) for the party!  They were SOOOOO good and we LOVED them!
