Parents are invited to our
annual Shorty Awards.
(I didn't get any pictures of parents!!!)
Students walk the red carpet and
receive an award for their
I buy the Movie Buff awards
at Oriental Trading.
They give an acceptance speech.
We get star autographs
and the paparazzi take pics!
The award certificates and
the autograph page go into
their scrapbooks. The scrapbooks
contains their quarterly self-portraits,
writing samples, a letter from their
parent when they were star of the week,
letters to Santa and the president as
well as the president's letter to them.
I am sure I am forgetting some things!
At the end of they day,
we watch the 3 movies we made!
Where Are They Now?
The Peter Rabbit Operetta
The Mother's Day Tea
This is a t-rex footprint!
Does anyone know where I can
get these plastic dino skeletons????
I have had them for years and can't
find them to buy more! I bake them
in chocolate cupcakes for the students
to "dig" for dinosaurs. They love this
and I hated not doing it with my class
this year! I only had 20 left!
They don't actually glow...
this guy is orange and the flash
from my camera did something wonky!
3. Character Counts
Each quarter we have a Character
Counts party to celebrate the students
who have achieved character counts behavior.
We were supposed to go to the park,
but due to the rain, rain, rain,
we had to have it in the gym.
We played fun songs for 30 minutes
while the kids and staff danced.
We also enjoyed popsicles.
Quarter 1- bowling at a bowling alley
Quarter 2- games in the classroom
Quarter 3- movie with popcorn and drink
4. Chicken Soup with Rice
For one of our weekly poems,
at the beginning of each month,
we read the Chicken Soup with Rice
poem out of our big book for that month.
I have typed copies for the kids to put
in their poetry binder.
At the end of the school year, we watch
the video and have chicken soup with rice.
I didn't take pictures!
I couldn't find a big book to link to it.
I couldn't find the video to link to it either!
5. Track and Field Day
Track and Field was cut short because
of the rain. The two events that we did have
were on the cement in front of the
school instead of the football field.
A little disappointing but they had
Thanks for stopping by!
