Testing round 2...AND...WE SURVIVED!!!  KCCT Reading assessment is now a thing of the past!  So long!  See ya!  Peace out!  BYEEEE!!!  I think we blew the roof off of it!  Rain or shine, I am so proud of our kiddos on all the hardwork and effort they have dedicated to this school year.

After testing, we worked on our studies into the Kentucky Derby.  We learned some racing terms that are synonymous with this unit such as mare, filly, colt, foal, jockey, silks, Derby, Oaks, Paddock, etc.

We had a nice looooong recess and I had a GREAT time playing with everyone...it was FUN!!!

After lunch, we worked on designing our very own silks for horses as this will be our project and focus of thinking over the next 2 weeks prior to the Kentucky Derby.  Students will be learning about the rich tradition and history that centers around the Derby and will be thinking of they very own horse name and designs for the silks.  Boys will be making jockey hats while girls will be designing their very own elaborate and overzealous ladies' derby hat!  I cannot wait to see how they turn out...I know they will be GREAT!

We have been filled and overjoyed with delicious breakfast, snacks, and treats, so thank you everyone for sending things in for us to have!  We are so grateful for your thoughtfulness and generosity!

I can't wait to see you tomorrow!
Mrs. Thomas
