New marker holder

This marker holder was designed and constructed completely by students because I said I had no place to put my markers. We already have orders coming in for more.

Happy Birthday Kaz!

Origami Time!

We had fun on Monday as my friend Z came in and showed us how to make origami balloons. We even got to put magical wishes and secrets inside.

Pants Hangers Needed

If anyone has any extra pants hangers (ones with clips on them) they would be well loved in our classroom.  I use them to hang temporary dry erase posters that need to be moved around the room.  I only need about 10 total.  Thanks!

Fun with Kindergarten

Today we were tasked with helping out with the kindergarten today for an hour. Because we were celebrating Talk Like a Pirate Day, we did piratey things with them.

So, this happened!

We finished our doors! There are some minor tweaks that need to happen, but they are attached!

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Hi Team,
In the coming weeks our class will be working with a book called, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. For this series, the author has taken old photographs of children doing extraordinary things and woven a magical story from them.  We will be exploring the concepts of photography, perception and weaving stories from interesting photographs.
This story was originally written for high school audiences.  Because of this, we will only be reading passages and excerpts from the book.  I would not recommend purchasing this novel for your student to read, because it contains some content that may be unsuitable for younger readers.
For more information on the book visit:  http://www.ransomriggs.com/miss_peregrine.php
